    The setup rsp template for MCS limits the number of Exclude events, Include events, and services that can be monitored. I updated the template to permit 500 max profiles; however, the way the rsp stores services has them appear as follows:

     

    <templates>
    <services>
    <Citrix>
    active = yes
    qos_state = yes
    time_cycle = 5
    average_last = 4
    <State>
    level = 4
    msgtoken = State
    active = yes
    threshold = Running
    </State>
    </Citrix>
    </services>
    </templates>
    <groups>
    <Citrix>
    description =
    os_hint =
    time_interval = 1 min
    <services>
    template = Citrix
    instance_template = Citrix
    <Citrix Audio Redirection Service>
    service_name = Citrix Audio Redirection Service
    template = Citrix
    </Citrix Audio Redirection Service>
    <Citrix End User Experiencing Monitoring>
    service_name = Citrix End User Experiencing Monitoring
    template = Citrix
    </Citrix End User Experiencing Monitoring>
    </services>
    </Citrix>
    </groups>

    I can deal with having the same threshold, severity, alarm state, and qos state (though it would be nice if separate templates could be created for more granularity). Until/unless that can happen though, it would be extremely useful if windows services had its own child template. The main template would be these settings:

    windows services rsp idea

    Note that the service name isn't listed. Then the child from this would be a profile for each service to monitor:

    service to monitor

     

    This would result in another child here:

    setup rsp child windows services
