4 Adding Monitored Instances to PEM : 4.3 Verifying the Connection and Binding

If you checked the Connect Now option when defining a new server, PEM will initiate a connection to the server when you click Save. The new server will be added to the Browser tree control, and be displayed on the Global Overview (see Figure 4.8).

When initially connecting to a newly bound server, the Global Overview dashboard may display the new server with a status of “unknown” in the server list; before recognizing the server, the bound agent must execute a number of probes to examine the server, which may take a few minutes to complete depending on network availability.
Within a few minutes, bar graphs on the Global Overview dashboard should show that the agent has now connected successfully, and the new server is included in the Postgres Server Status list.
If after five minutes, the Global Overview dashboard still does not list the new server, you should review the logfiles for the monitoring agent, checking for errors. Right-click the agent's name in the tree control, and select the Probe Log Analysis option from the Dashboards sub-menu of the context menu.
