Install a Collector

BindPlane Collectors reside inside your network and connect to the Sources you'd like to monitor. They send data back to the BindPlane cloud service.

You'll want to install the Collector on a server with network access to the Sources you're planning to monitor. Don't worry if you have multiple isolated networks, you can add as many Collectors as needed!

Configure a Source to monitor

A Source is any object you'd like to monitor. It could be a database, a web service, or even a hardware device in your datacenter. We support over 100 Sources, and we're adding more all the time!

To get started, just pick one Source. You'll come back later to add everything in your environment.

Select a Collector to use. In this case there should only be one, so the decision's easy! If you add multiple Collectors for multiple networks or datacenters, it's important you choose the Collector in the same region as your Source.
