View Devices

The Devices page makes available a lot of information about each of your devices at a glance.

In the Grid View, information appears on device cards along with an image of the device (when available). The toolbar at the bottom of the device card provides options to open a session, view tool results, open a support case, and perform other functions.

The device card also displays the health of each device, according to the most recent scan. (Supported devices include: ASA, IOS, IOS-XE, IOS-XR, NX-OS, and WLC. The health information is based on the System Diagnostics tool results, except for WLC devices, which use Show Tech Diagnostics tool results.) You can click the Health information in order to open the Tool Results window for additional details.
