Select Send an email with a link to this bookmark if you want to email someone a link to the new bookmark.

The Active Hosts Summary dashboard displays information about each active host in a separate view. A host becomes active when its memory usage is greater than 0%.

This dashboard is useful when you have a small number of hosts and want to see a visual summary of them.

If you have a large number of hosts, you can use the Hosts dashboard, or use the Active Hosts Summary dashboard as a portlet in a custom dashboard and configure custom dashboards for each set of hosts. For information about creating custom dashboards using a selected dashboard, see Creating a Custom Dashboard Based on the Current Dashboard on page 87.

In the Number of Hosts to Display box, type the number and click Apply.

If you have a large number of active hosts in your environment, you can filter your list of services by specifying a domain of interest. For example, you may want to focus on only the Windows services in your environment.
