    Understanding the Monitor Mode Tasks Pane in Views Other than Service View

    The Tasks pane in Monitor mode displays a list of tasks that are available for the currently selected Monitor tab. These tasks provide monitoring functions in addition to the monitors available under each tab.

    The tasks listed in the Tasks pane vary according to the selected tab—that is, Summary or Traffic—and the scope you have selected in the View pane. For example, the L3 VLAN Statistics task is available only when you select the Traffic tab and a router or a device in the View pane.

    For each Monitor mode tab, the following tables list each task and provide a short description of the task:

    • Table 1: Summary Tab Tasks

    • Table 2: Traffic Tab Tasks

    • Key Tasks—Connectivity Services Director enables you to group the tasks that you perform frequently and create a list of key tasks. You can add any task from the Tasks pane to the Key Tasks list by selecting a task and clicking the plus (+) sign that appears adjacent to the task. For some modes, you can see that Connectivity Services Director has predefined some key tasks for you. You can modify this set of tasks to suit your requirements. This feature is available in Task pane irrespective of your current mode, scope, or view.
