This section details the dashboards of Devices (Discovery) dashboards category. For more information on operations that can be performed on reporting dashboards, see About Dashboards.

The dashboards covered in this section are as follows.

Inactive IP Addresses

The Inactive IP Addresses dashboard lists inactive IP addresses that are not in use since the initial specified time, and remain so through the last discovery cycle. For example, you can use this dashboard to compare the state of all ports on devices for one month's operation versus 1 weeks' operation. The dashboard lists inactive IP addresses associated with Hosts, IPv4 and IPv6 Fixed Address objects, and IPv4 Reservation objects. Each unique IP address within each network view appears exactly once in the dashboard. You can go to the Data Management –> IPAM page to delete listed inactive IP addresses.
By default, this dashboard operates for all devices across all network views. This dashboard supports use of a single time filter. You can filter by device name or network view.
This dashboard displays the following IP address and device information in table format:

  • IP: The IP address.
  • Last MAC/DUID: The discovered MAC or DUID.
  • Type: Inactive IP address object type: Fixed Address, IPv4 Reservation or Host.
  • Device Type: The type of device connected to the inactive IP address. Types include RouterFirewallSwitch-Router, and Switch.
  • Device Name: The name of the device connected to the inactive IP address.
  • Port/Interface: The device interface bound to the IP address.
  • Network View: The network view containing the inactive IP address.

Port Capacity Delta by Device

The Port Capacity Delta by Device dashboard provides three Start/End time ranges by which each measured device illustrates how many interfaces move into and out of the three key functional states for each port: Administratively Up/ Operationally Up, Administratively Up/Operationally Down and Administratively Down/Operationally Down.
For example, consider a port that is in the Administratively Up/ Operationally Up status on a given device at the beginning of a one-week measurement (Start), and that it is the only port that changes state for that device in the measurement period. At the end of the measurement period (End) it goes into an Administratively Up/Operationally Down state. At first, the Administratively Up/ Operationally Up Start counter reflects the discovered state at the beginning of the measurement period. When the port changes state, and its change is discovered, the Administratively Up/ Operationally Up End counter decrements by 1; the Administratively Up/ Operationally Down Start counter increases by 1. The data format is similar to the Port Capacity Utilization by Device report except that each data point divides into two values (Start and End), reflecting the delta.
You can filter by device name or network view, or both.
This dashboard displays the following categories of information in table format:

  • Device Name: Name of the listed device.
  • Admin Up, Operation Up Start: count at the starting time of measurement of device interfaces in Admin Up/Operational Up status.
  • Admin Up, Operation Up End: count at the ending time of measurement device interfaces in Admin Up/Operational Up status.
  • Admin Down, Operation Down Start: count at the starting time of measurement of device interfaces in Admin Down/Operational Down status.
  • Admin Down, Operation Down End: count at the ending time of device interfaces in Admin Down/Operational Down status.
  • Admin Up, Operation Down Start: count at the starting time of measurement of device interfaces in Admin Up and Operational Down status.
  • Admin Up, Operation Down End: count at the ending time of device interfaces in Admin Up and Operational Down status.
  • Total Available: The total number of available ports for the listed device.
  • Network View: The Grid Manager Network View to which the device is associated.

Port Capacity Trend

The Port Capacity Trend report is a line graph of device port utilization over time. It uses the Administratively Up/ Operationally Up, Administratively Up/Operationally Down, and Administratively Down/Operationally Down counters; by default, for all interfaces across all devices, across all network views, to produce a line chart illustrating four broad data categories:

  • Admin Up, Operation Up: cumulative count over time of device interfaces in Admin Up/Operational Up status.
  • Admin Down, Operation Down: cumulative count over time of device interfaces in Admin Down/Operational Down status.
  • Admin Up, Operation Down: cumulative count over time of device interfaces in Admin Up and Operational Down status.
  • Total Available: Total number of ports on all devices across all network views, whether provisioned or not.

The default time span for this trend chart is one week of measurement. You can filter by device name or network view, or both. You will need to know the device name or network view name for filter entry.
Should you turn off filtering, the dashboard shows the collected data 'for all time;' for the entire period since monitoring began.

Port Capacity Utilization by Device

The Port Capacity Utilization by Device provides the devices' overall port status for the specified time, without stating devices' or individual ports' operating state. Each device's count of unused interfaces, within each network view, appears exactly once in the dashboard. By default, the table sorts by ascending Device Name. By default, this dashboard lists all devices, across all network views. You can filter by device name or network view, or both. Grid Manager takes snapshots of data for Port Capacity reports every six hours.
You will see three distinct port configuration combination counts per device:

  • Administratively Up, Operationally Up
  • Administratively Up, Operationally Down
  • Administratively Down, Operationally Down

This dashboard displays the following information in table format:

  • Device Name: The name of the device associated with the port status counts.
  • Admin Up, Operation Up: The count of device interfaces in Admin Up/Operational Up status.
  • Admin Down, Operation Down: The count of device interfaces in Admin Down/Operational Down status.
  • Admin Up, Operation Down: The count of device interfaces in Admin Up and Operational Down status.
  • Total Available: Total number of interfaces available for the device, whether provisioned or not.
  • Network View: The network view containing the listed device.

In the columns VRF Description and VRF RD, if all VRF description or RD values for IP addresses are the same, then the columns display this value for the network. Otherwise the columns display “Multiple”.
