The monitoring level for a server defines the amount of data collected for it. The higher the monitoring level, the more details are collected and the larger performance overhead is introduced by the data collector. The available Monitoring Levels are L1 (Production mode), L2 (Problem Determination mode), and L3 (Tracing mode).

You can create schedules that defines preset times at which the monitoring level is to be changed, then apply different schedules to different servers. You can set (override) the monitoring level manually for any server at any time.

To view the monitoring level for all servers, adjust it manually and assign schedules for its adjustment, select MOD Console in the left navigation pane.

To view the schedules and modify them, select Schedule Management in the left navigation pane.

To create a new blank schedule, select Create Schedule in the left navigation pane.

To create a schedule as a copy of an existing schedule, select Duplicate Schedule in the left navigation pane.

Tip: To change the default monitoring level, used when no schedule or override is applied, see Configure the Data Collection settings.
