Option Definition
Tree view of appliances All appliances managed by the Appliance Management extension in McAfee ePO are shown in the tree view pane on the left of the screen.

In this pane, your appliances are displayed in ways that suit your organization; organized by appliance type, by country, by office, or by business group. Use the McAfee ePO System Tree to create the structure for organizing your appliances.

The color indicates the status of each appliance (or, when nested, of groups of appliances):

— Appliance (or cluster of appliances) is functioning correctly.

— Appliance (or an appliance in the selected cluster) needs attention.

— Appliance (or an appliance in the selected cluster) needs urgent attention.

— Appliance (or an appliance in the selected cluster) is unreachable.

Appliance states

Included in each System Health card is information relating to the status of the appliances or cluster members.

The possible states for an appliance or cluster member are:

  • Active — The selected node is working as expected and is green.
  • Shut down — The node has been intentionally shut down and is blurred.

The center area of the user interface contains the system health cards.

Each managed appliance has its own system health card, providing statistics and information about resources and load. Each health card includes some standard information, and some information specific to the type of appliance being reported.

Note: If you select a group of appliances in the tree view, each appliance in that group has a health card displayed in the System Health pane. If you select one appliance in the tree view, only the health card for that appliance is displayed.
