Monitor Solution continuously collects and analyzes data that is captured from computers and other devices on your network. When data is captured that meets a criteria that you predefine, alerts can be raised to notify you and actions can be taken.
The Monitor Plug-in or the Remote Monitoring Server gathers the data that you want to monitor. The data is remotely managed from the Symantec Management Console. The Monitor Plug-in and the Remote Monitoring Server receive instructions from the Notification Server computer. These instructions are called monitor policies. Monitor policies instruct the plug-in and Remote Monitoring Server of what and how you want to monitor, and what actions you want to be done.

Multiple monitor policies with similar purposes, such as monitoring an operating system or an application, are grouped together into monitor packs. Monitor packs must be imported into the Notification Server computer following the installation of Monitor Solution.
