Understand interface details

SAM offers the added ability to monitor Windows based interfaces using WMI.

Navigate to the Interface Details page

  1. On the Web Console, click My Dashboards > Home.
  2. In the All Nodes resource, click Manage Nodes.
  3. From the Show drop down list, select Interfaces.
  4. Click on an interface in the list.

The Interface Details page comes with a variety of resources and charts that provide details about the interface being monitored. Most are self-explanatory. Those that are not are listed below:

Using the Enterprise Operations Console (EOC) with a standalone version of SAM 5.5 or earlier will not allow interfaces to be monitored via WMI.
