I am new to ipMonitor and wanted to know the proper hierarchy of how to setup monitors.

Right now it looks like a mess because under My Network, there are many subgroups such as Internal Servers and External Servers and so on.

Then under Internal Servers, there are 20+ groups (1 for each server).

Then under some of these 20 groups, you have devices, and under devices you have monitors.

For some of the other of these 20 groups, you have no devices lists, but you have monitors and dependencies listed.

Can someone explain the proper way of creating this tree?
Do you need to list a monitor under a device under a group? Can you have just devices and monitors listed under them without groups?
What's the point of dependency devices?

A SmartGroup is a dynamic group whose contents are determined by parameters
that you set. Unlike regular groups, whose contents never change, the contents
of a SmartGroup automatically keep track of changes in your network

ipMonitor creates default maps for each group and device in your
network, but you will get the most benefit from your maps if you customize them
by creating connections between devices and adding background images
