About the Plugin Support button

Last updated:

A subscription to Watchman Monitoring offers complete support to Subscribers. The most common request we receive is for for clarification of a report.

To streamline this process, we created a Plugin Support button in the Dashboard. Using this button eases the process of submitting the report, and provides the Watchman Monitoring Support team needed background information to speed replies.

The MonitoringClient folder in the Mac's local Library folder holds the agent's preferences, settings, and seven days worth of logs. Zipping this folder allows us to see details that speed up our troubleshooting process.


We may ask for additional files depending on the plugin we're troubleshooting, however, having a copy of this folder is always useful.

tar -czf monitoringclient.tar.gz /var/log/monitoringclient /etc/monitoringclient
