This view presents devices as icons on a customizable graphic background. The Map View for the Unassigned device group cannot be customized.
You can create a unique Map View for each group in the Device Group view that represents monitored devices and makes visual sense according to your needs. By default, the device icons are positioned in a row layout on a tiled background, and identified by a label positioned below the icons.
- Customize the background, and the size and shape of the icons, reposition the icons, define where the icon labels that identify the devices are positioned, or disable those labels.
- Hover over an icon to view information about the device's sensors. You can also show the current value of a sensor at one or more of the device icons.
- Use the Find Devices, Groups, or Sensors in Map icon, or right-click option, to search and select device groups and sensors by label, or devices by IP address, location, hostname, model name or device label. Boolean operators are not supported.
You can search and select device groups, devices, or sensors regardless of whether the identifier is shown on the map. For more information about identifiers and other icon settings, see Map Settings.
Select a device icon, or icons, to filter the Active Alarms view to show only the alarms for selected devices. When a NetBotz Appliance is selected, the Active Alarms view will display its alarms, including all alarms associated with the devices it monitors.
Some right-click options are not directly related to managing the Map View:
- The Delete Devices option is disabled for a device that has a NetBotz Appliance as its parent device.
You enable the Launch Advanced View option in File > Client Preferences > Advanced View Settings.
The Request Device Scan option is unavailable for NetBotz Appliances, and devices that have a NetBotz Appliance as their parent device.
The Rack Access Control option is available only when a Rack Access Pod 170 is connected to the selected NetBotz Appliance.
