When you create or edit a policy, you can add and configure monitor types. The Add Monitor Types dialog box presents configuration fields for compatible BMC PATROL monitoring solutions that are located in the Central Monitoring Repository. For a list of monitoring solutions that you can configure through Central Monitoring Administration, see the Monitoring solutions configurable through Central Monitoring Administration chapter in the BPPM online documentation.
