Maintaining Cloud Monitoring Services

During normal operations, Dashboard will monitor devices at regular intervals for any changes to the configurations that are required for Cloud Monitoring operations. When required configurations are missing or if the device configuration was changes, the Cloud Monitoring service will re-assess and apply the appropriate configurations to ensure the device can properly be monitored in Dashboard.
