What can I see on a device dashboard?

Follow

A device dashboard give you an overview of a specific device. Any element of the dashboard can be clicked to access more detailed information.

There are a few different device dashboards:

Common device dashboard

Most devices — such as unmanaged switches, routers, and workstations — use a common dashboard for displaying device detail.

This is what’s available on a common device dashboard:

Several tabs are also available for accessing more detail.

See What happens if my collector disconnects?

Device details

Provides you with inventory details about the device:

  • IP address(es)
  • Network(s) it belongs to, including access, trunk, and subnet
  • Device type
  • Make and model
  • Software version
  • Serial number
  • Description
  • Firmware version

To update a device’s details, such as its name, type, or management status, see How do I edit device details? You can also update device details from Discovery  > Manage Devices.

KPIs (key performance indicators)

Located next to the device details.

  • Online Status indicates the last known discovered status (up or down).
  • Current Uptime indicates how long the device has been online. If the device has been offline for longer than a quick reboot, the next time the device is powered on the current uptime will show as ~1 day.
  • Online Interfaces indicates how many of the device’s interfaces are currently online. Click the number to pull up a list of the interfaces that are online. You can filter the list to show only certain interfaces. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.
  • Open Alerts indicates how many alerts are open for the device. Click the number to pull up a list of the alerts. You can filter the list to show only certain alerts. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.
  • Credential status indicates the current status for device credentials, including SNMP, login, WMI, and VMware credentials.
