On the Cloud Monitoring Console, on the left panel, by-right, there should be a menu item named Host Monitoring
Anyone able to see this item --> Host Monitoring ?



This is my Cloud Monitor Console








Thanks

Probably you are following an old documentation, to monitor hosts you can go to "CloudMonitor > Cloud Service Monitoring > ECS". From there you can effectively monitor the hosts.

Thanks Roura



I have another Alibaba Cloud account (Enterprise)

the CloudMonitor panel showing Host Monitoring menu item.


However, this Host Monitoring item is not shown on another account (as shown on post #1)

In my account, which is Enterprise, I can't see that option either. Are you using the console using the old style? Can you attach a screenshot? I'm curious.

Do you have agent installed on an ECS server or a non-ECS server for monitoring on and off the cloud?
I'm not sure if this is the reason of missing menu item "Host Monitoring" in the "CloudMonitor" console...


Following is mentioned on the link: https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/doc-detail/43503.htm:
"The host monitoring service of CloudMonitor allows you to monitor your servers in a systematic manner by installing an agent on the servers."

To install monitoring agent, refer link: https://www.alibabacloud.com/help/doc-detail/114950.html

I have installed CloudMonitor agent on Alibaba Cloud ECS and non-ECS server too.
However, the Host Monitoring menu option doesn't appear on the left panel.

Anyway, I found an alternative way to display them
1) Create an Application Group
2) Add the non-ECS server into the Application Group
