Views provide a number of ways to analyze your real time data. A view consists of network object information provided in a table that reflects the most recently collected data. Toolset Network Performance Monitor provides over 20 predefined views created with the help of network engineers in the field. If you do not find a view that meets your needs, you can create custom views.

Predefined views provide the data about all the objects that match the purpose of the view. For example, you will not find CPU load information in the interface errors and discards view, just as you will not find errors and discard information in the CPU load table. Consider the following list of predefined views:

  • Buffer Errors This Hour
  • Buffer Errors Today
  • CPU Load
  • Current Packets per Second
  • Current Packet Size
  • Current Traffic
  • Errors and Discards This Hour
  • Errors and Discards Today
  • Fast Polling Status for all Nodes
  • Interface Bandwidth Settings
  • Interface Polling Intervals
  • Interface Status
  • Interfaces
  • IOS Image and Version
  • Last Time each Node Rebooted
  • Last Time Each Interface Changed
  • Maximum Traffic Load Today
  • Memory Utilization
  • Node Polling Intervals
  • Node Status
  • Nodes View
  • Percent Utilization
  • Response Time
  • SNMP Community Strings
  • Volumes
