Memory Monitor Template

The Memory Monitor Template enables you trigger alerts when either a Windows host's or a Docker container's memory load exceeds a trigger threshold. This template is typically used by systems administrators that want to be notified when memory load exceeds a threshold. When monitoring Windows hosts, the Memory Monitor Template uses WMI to query the memory load. When monitoring Docker Containers, the Memory Monitor Template uses the Docker Engine REST API to query memory load.

This template can be configured as an Agent-Based Template.
