Asset Management in IPMonitor
Effective asset management is a crucial component of IPMonitor, enabling you to monitor and manage various email-related assets such as IP addresses and sender domains. This guide will take you through the process of adding and managing assets in IPMonitor.
Accessing Assets: Click on the "Assets" link in the left menu. If this is your first visit to this section, you'll find an empty page with an option to add a new asset.
Add Asset Button: Click on the button to start adding assets to your project.
Asset Types: Based on your license, you can add multiple assets at once or a single asset. Assets can be an IP address, a range of IP addresses, or sender domains. For example:
- Single IP:
- IP Range (CIDR):
- Single IP:
Asset Details: On the new asset page, select the type of asset you're adding (IP addresses or sender domains) and input the details.
Tagging and Notes
Tagging: Optionally, tag your assets for easier management. This is particularly useful if you are managing a large number of assets. Multiple tags can be assigned to each asset.
Administrative Notes: You can also add administrative notes to each asset for internal reference. These notes will be visible on the asset detail page.
Monitoring and Data Collection
- After clicking the "START MONITORING" button, IPMonitor will create the asset records and direct you to the asset list.
- Initially, you may not see metrics for your assets. However, within 24 hours, as IPMonitor collects data, metrics like sender score and number of blacklist issues will start to appear for each asset.
Managing Existing Assets
Editing Assets: In the asset list, you can edit individual assets by clicking "Edit" next to each one. This allows you to modify tags and administrative notes.
Deleting Assets: To remove an asset, click the "Delete" option next to it.
Asset Report Dashboard
- By clicking on an individual asset, you'll be directed to its report dashboard. Here, you'll find up-to-date metrics such as sender score, blacklist issue trends, Microsoft SNDS reputation and status, hostname, and assigned tags.
- The dashboard also includes charts displaying historical trends, like changes in sender score, number of blacklisting issues, blacklist detections, and hostname variations over time.
