Question:

How Can I Create Same Set Of Tests Across Multiple Devices?

Answer:

Traverse provides a way to create a template with a group of tests with customized parameters and then apply this template to multiple devices so that each of the devices also is provisioned with the same tests. Such a template is known as a Monitoring Profile in Traverse.


The first task is to create a Monitoring Profile. One typically creates a monitoring profile from the tests on an existing device. In other words, at least one device must be configured with the appropriate tests to be monitored before creating a new profile. Once the test name, polling interval, thresholds, assigned actions/schedules, etc have been fine tuned, create a new Monitoring Profile using following steps: 
Log into the Traverse Web Application as an end-user
Navigate to Adminitration --> Devices
Locate the device with the tests that you would like to use as the template
Click on Tests link (at the very right) on the row for the device
Click on Create Monitoring Profile link towards the top of the page
Select the option to Create a new profile
Provide a suitable profile name and description (optional)
Click Apply
You will be returned back to the test management page, but you can verify that the profile is created as follows:
Click on Create Monitoring Profile link
Click on the drop down list for Profile Name under Update an Existing Profile
You should find the newly created profile in the drop down list
In order to use this newly created profile:
Log into the Traverse Web Application as an end-user
Navigate to Administration --> Devices
Click on Create A Device
Provide the required information, ensuring that the Create New Tests After Creating This Device checkbox is selected
Click on Create Device at the bottom of the form
On next page, select the second option Create new tests from following Monitoring Profile
From the drop down list, select the appropriate monitoring profile
Click on Add Tests
The same set of tests from the Monitoring Profile will be added to the new device with same parameters as the original device. You can validate test settings by clicking on Tests link for this device after navigating to Administration --> Devices. In order to apply a Monitoring Profile to an existing device:
Log into the Traverse Web Application as an end-user
Navigate to Administration --> Devices
Locate the existing device
Click on Tests link (at the very right) on the row for the device
Click on Add New Standard Tests
On next page, select the second option Create new tests from following Monitoring Profile
From the drop down list, select the appropriate monitoring profile
Click on Add Tests
