Configuring systems for monitoring with Pega Autonomic Event Services 7.3
After you install Pega® Autonomic Event Services 7.3, configure the Pega Platform systems that you want the application to monitor.

For each Pega Platform system, complete the following tasks:
- Ensuring that each system has a unique name
- Enabling Pega Autonomic Event Services integration on monitored systems
- Configuring email scorecard subscriptions
- Optional: Enabling Pega Autonomic Event Services to send requests to monitored nodes
