Monitoring Web transactions Monitoring network devices

Net Monitor Environment view

The Net Monitor Environment view displays a high-level overview of your monitored environment. The view has two tiles, each representing the monitored objects of interest: Network Devices and Monitor Locations.

Each tile shows how many of the corresponding object instances there are in your monitored infrastructure, as well as the count of objects of that type in each of the alarm states Normal , Warning , Critical , or Fatal ). For example, the following image shows 14 network devices: none in the Fatal or Critical states, one in Warning, and 13 in the Normal state.

You can move the tiles by dragging and dropping until you achieve the desired layout. To hide one or more tiles, on the tool bar on the right, click , and in the popup that appears, click a tile that you want to hide.

Clicking the object type icon, the object type name, or the object count, shows summary information for that object type in the Quick View. Clicking an alarm state (for example, Warning) on a tile displays summary information in the Quick View for the objects of that type that are in the selected alarm state. If an alarm state has a count of zero, then you can not drill down on the alarm state.

This view appears in the upper part of the Performance Browser, just above the Quick View.

This view is made up of the following embedded views:
