Use the Locations dialog box to specify which locations will be monitored by the Monitoring Server and to view or edit custom or default threshold settings that are used to control alerting for individual imported locations. The custom and default thresholds are used by the Monitoring Server Management Pack to determine when alerts will be fired because of degraded media quality on network locations. If you are not using the Monitoring Server Management Pack for near real-time monitoring of media quality and performance counters are not being monitored, you do not need to make any configuration changes on this dialog box.


Specify if a location is enabled for monitoring by the Monitoring Server. To enable a location for monitoring, select the check box next to the name of the location. To disable monitoring of an imported location, clear the check box.

To view or modify the custom threshold settings of each performance counter for a location, click a location, and then click Thresholds.

Default Settings

To view or modify the default threshold settings for all imported locations, click Default. You can edit the default threshold settings for each performance counter. These default settings will be used for all imported locations that do not have custom threshold settings.
