Managing groups of servers
By grouping servers, you can monitor their performance in one area of the Windows Media Services snap-in, making it possible to organize your servers according to your needs. For example, you can group your servers by administrative area, business application, geographic location, or content source.
The group summary page provides the total number of connected players and the total amount of bandwidth being used by the server group. This allows you to determine when to add additional resources or when to establish limits on your servers. It also provides a quick way to see the status for all the servers in your group.
