Burst Targets

What is a Burst Target?

Burst Targets allow you to go beyond the Target limit on your Agents. For example, if you already have 2/2 Targets on Agent A, you could use a Burst Target to add a 3rd Target (even though you've already reached your limit). Burst Targets can be distributed accross your Agents in any fashion. You can put them all on one Agent, or 3 on one Agent with 3 on a different Agent. These will come in handy if you ever need to do some extensive troubleshooting beyond the Targets you use for long-term monitoring.

How many Burst Targets do I get?

That depends on which plan you have, and the number of Agents you've purchased. Under the Plus plan at 5 Agents you'll get 6 Burst Targets. The more Agents you add, the more Burst Targets you get. You can view the number of used/available Burst Targets in the Subscription Overview widget.
