The Details view Pic 1 is by default located in the middle of the program main window. It is used to display the detailed information on the hosts and their performance and availability characteristics.
The Show button from the Details Ribbon group on the Monitoring contextual page from the Monitoring Tools category should be used to activate the Details view and fill it with details for the selected hosts.
This view can display details pertaining to the selected hosts – this mode is activated using the Link with Selection button. In this mode, the view is updated automatically every time the scope of selected hosts is changed. In case you have disabled this mode for your purposes, you can review the details for a set of hosts by selecting them in the Hosts or Hosts Browser view and choosing the Show Details item from the pop-up menu, the corresponding button on the toolbar, or the Show button from the Details Ribbon group on the Monitoring contextual page from the Monitoring Tools category.
In case if there are no hosts selected, the Details view is empty and displays the hint for the actions to perform to fill it with any data. As for a single host selection and multiple hosts selection, the different detailed content is displayed – we will take a closer look on it in the following sections. In case you are selecting a group of hosts, the selection is transformed to the hosts that belong to that group directly. The Details view content is also refreshed when you are clicking on a host hyperlink in the Connectivity Events view, displaying the details for the highlighted host.
The details for individual hosts can be pinned to be displayed in separate views, regardless the selection.
In this chapter, we will introduce to you both the single host details and multiple hosts details view modes and describe each particular mode.
