Add multiple resources

As an administrator, you can add multiple resources to the Monitor by creating a comma separated values (CSV) file, and then importing the file.

 To add multiple resources to the Monitor
  1. Create a CSV file.

    Each line in the CSV file contains information about a single resource. Each comma-separated term within a line describes an attribute of the resource. The order of the terms is important. The following table describes the terms and their order:
