The application group feature of the CloudMonitor allows you to manage cloud product resources by group across products and regions and can centrally manage service-related resources. With the help of this feature, service-related resources such as servers, databases, load balance, and storage can be managed from the service perspective. You can manage alarm rules and view metric data from the service perspective and this can help to improve O&M efficiency.
If you have puchased multiple Alibaba Cloud products, you can use the group feature to add resources (such as servers, databases, object storage, and cache) related to the same service to the same group. You can manage alarm rules and view metric data in the group dimension. This reduces management complexities and improves cloud monitoring efficiency.
