Navigating Machine View

Machine View consists of three panes. Each pane displays unique information and provides unique functionality. The panes are interrelated -- the information presented in a lower pane is dependant on what is selected in the pane directly above it. This "top down" approach means you use the top pane to view high-level information and the two lower panes to drill down to more detailed information.

The top pane displays all machines that have been scanned at some point and that are "known" by the program. See the following topics for information on using the top pane:

Searching Machine View

Filtering Machine View

Performing Actions on Machines

The middle pane displays patch and assetinformation about the machine selected in the top pane. See the following topics for information on using the middle pane:
