Monitor using Device Inventory

The Device Inventory enables you to view, filter, and search data for servers and workstations. After you search and filter to display the device lists you need, you can export the data to Microsoft Excel or view the devices pre-filtered in the All Devices view.

Use the Device Inventory charts and table options to:

  • Select one or more chart elements to filter on multiple data points.
  • Filter or sort by columns or use the more detailed Filter Builder options.
  • Search for a specific device using the search box or use the column searches to find groups of devices.
  • Choose the columns to display, drag and drop columns to move, and fix columns to the right or left.

The last filters and settings you use in Device Inventory are present the next time you open it. Select Clear at the top right of the data table to reset to the default Device Inventory view.
