Device Group Mini Status workspace report

The Device Group Mini Status home workspace report lists all devices in a device group and displays their status by color, allowing you to quickly see the status of all devices in a group from across the room.

Device Group Mini Status

Displaying multiple mini status workspace reports within a workspace view grants you a quick look at more than one group on your network and can help monitor important or problem areas more efficiently. You also can display Active Monitors associated with the devices in a selected group, which is useful in pinpointing what services on your network are down.

To aid in maximizing your screen real estate, you have the ability to change the size and display style of the workspace report. Even if the font size is too small to read at first-glance, you can use the mouse-over hover text to find out the identity of a device. The static rows of the mini status workspace report also aid in device recognition, as devices remain in the same position regardless of their current state.
