About the Application Visibility Page

To access this page, select Monitor > Applications > Visibility.

There are two ways in which you can view your application visibility data—Chart View or Grid View. By default, the data is displayed in Chart View.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

Chart View

Click the Chart View link for a brief summary of the top 50 applications consuming the maximum bandwidth in your network. The data can be presented graphically as a bubble graph, heat map, or a zoomable bubble graph. The data is refreshed automatically based on the selected time range. You can also use the Custom button to set a custom time range.

You can hover over your applications to view critical information such as total number of sessions, total number of blocks, category, bandwidth consumed, risk levels, and characteristics. You can also view the top five users accessing your application.

Table 35 provides guidelines on using the fields on the Chart View of the Application Visibility page.
