Use Views to Display Data

A view is the primary mechanism for displaying data. In the console, many views are available to help you visualize your network.

Type of Views in the NNMi Console
View Type Strength
Table Views Present summary information for a list of objects in a sorted order. Examples include: viewing a list of incidents sorted by Status and filtered by Lifecycle State.
Map Views Display graphical relationships among objects.
Dashboard Views Display at-a-glance data in the form of panels.

To access a view, select a workspace and then click the view that you want to display. Some views are also accessible from the console's Actions menu. See Use Actions to Perform Tasks for more information.

You can also right-click any object in a table or map view to access the items available within the Actions menu.

Some NNMi users can delete nodes and other objects from the NNMi database (depending on the assigned NNMi Role). Any node that has been deleted appears as a transparent icon to all NNMi users until their map is refreshed using the  Refresh icon. After Refresh, the deleted node is removed from the map. NNMi does not automatically refresh the connectivity or set of nodes in a map view, except on the Initial Discovery Progress and Network Overview maps.

From a view, you can:

Depending on the NNMi Role to which you are assigned, you may or may not be allowed to create or delete instances of some objects from the view. See HelpHelp for Administrators for more information.
