Selecting Devices in the left pane displays a Device List report in the right pane. The saved report’s filename starts with “ROUTER_LIST.” Clicking on the small icon to the left of Devices in the left pane will expand the tree to show a list of routers in the left pane. These devices can then be individually selected to display a detailed Equipment View in the right pane for the selected router. See Equipment View for more information
Various actions can be executed by right clicking on a row and selecting an item from the popup menu. The items in this popup menu are available for many reports in the Hardware Inventory window, though not all reports will contain all items.
Node Detail: Brings up a Node window with detailed information about the node in the selected row.
Highlight: Highlights the relevant node in the Map window.
Show Config: Opens the router configuration file for the relevant node if such a file is available.
Show Equipment: This will open the Equipment View window for the relevant node.
The Table Options window can be opened by right clicking on a row in a report and selecting Table Options. This is useful for customizing the type of information displayed in the report.
Selecting Use image icons or checkbox if applicable displays image icons in vendor and status cells that make the reports more visually pleasing and easier to comprehend at a glance.
