Hostname offers a convenient, easy to remember name when targeting a monitoring point in Path Plus or when accessing Web admin. The default hostname is the model number plus hardware ID, e.g. m30-xYzPd. You might want a more meaningful name for network admin purposes, like appneta-m35-ny. And if this hostname isn’t suitable for use inside the AppNeta Performance Manager (APM), you can configure an alias: see Rename a Monitoring Point.
