The device details view provides a "single pane of glass" view of the health of a device. From this window, you can quickly get an overview of the device's components, active issues and other system information.
The device name and IP address appears in the web browser tab. This enables you to open device details in multiple tabs and know which tab is for each device.
The tabs provide information and actions you can perform on the device. These include:
- Overview - displays system and status information for the device
- Tools - control specific aspects of the device using Direct Device Support.
- Monitoring - enables you to manage services and ticketing on the device and view rules, scheduled tasks and notifications associated with the device.
