    User Visibility Overview

    You can use the User Visibility page to view information related to the bandwidth consumption, session establishment, and the risks associated with the users.

    Starting in Junos Space Security Director Release 16.1, users are displayed on the page by username and, if the user name is not available, by source IP address.

    There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the Chart View or Grid View.

    Chart View

    By default, the user’s data is shown in the Chart view. It shows the top 50 users consuming maximum bandwidth in your network. The data can be presented graphically as a bubble graph, heat map, or zoomable bubble graph. The data is refreshed automatically based on the selected time range.

    You can hover over a username or source IP to view critical information such as total number of sessions and bandwidth consumed. The sessions are shown as links. When you click a link, the All Events page appears with all security events.

    Starting in Junos Space Security Director Release 16.1, you can view all the applications accessed by the user by clicking the View All Applications link. When you click the View All Applications link, the Application Visibility page in Grid view is displayed with the correct filter applied.

    You can block a user or an application.

    Table 1 shows the different filters you can use to view the user’s data in Chart view.
