Use can use this feature to create Monitor Views with Custom Filters based on the Category name (i.e. BizTalk Server Send Ports, Windows Services, Azure Service Bus Queues). Some :Modinite: Monitoring Agents has the feature in the Configuration to create custom Categories.
The Category names are automatically populated from Resources during the sync operation of the Monitoring Service. The Resources comes from the Monitoring Agents. The Monitoring Service knows about the whereabouts of the Monitoring Agents from the settings in Monitoring Agents.
