You can quickly create customized services that leverage:
- Automation Manager Policies,
- MSP N-central's proprietary external data feed ( EDF) engine,
- TCP port queries,
- Log file monitoring,
- SNMP queries,
- Syslog messages, and
- WMI queries
Custom services function similarly to the services included with MSP N-central. You can create, edit, and delete custom services as well as export a custom service to share with others. You can also import custom services from the N-able Resource Center.
Stock Service Items
A stock service item is a predefined metric for an EDF, SNMP, or WMI custom service. This includes: CPU, Memory, Process, and UPS services.
Use stock service items when the data you are collecting with the custom service needs to be included in MSP N-central's Executive Summary report or in any Report Manager report. For example, CPU usage.
