    Understanding the Monitor Mode Tasks Pane

    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, Traffic, Client, RF, or Equipment—and the scope you have selected in the View pane. For example, the VC Protocols Statistics task is available only when you select the Traffic tab and a Virtual Chassis or Virtual Chassis member 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
    • Table 3: Client Tab Tasks
    • Table 4: RF Tab Tasks
    • Table 5: Equipment Tab Tasks
    • Table 6: Device Management Tasks
    • Key Tasks—Network 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 Network 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.
    • For information about the Fabric Analysis tab, see Analyzing QFabric Devices and Analyzing Virtual Chassis Fabrics.
