Volumes

When an element is selected in a monitored element tab of the Entity Explorer details view, the widgets that fill the tabs contain information or status related to the selected element. Each widget shows a specific type of information collected from the selected element. If filters are applied or a time period is selected in the entity details view, the data in the widgets are filtered accordingly. See Entity Explorer and Entity details view.

When a network device's volume elements are detected and monitored, they are listed in the Volumes tab, with an overview of their status, size, percentage of used space, and the volume type.

To monitor volumes on a device, add the device in Network Collector Web Console, and make sure the volume is selected for monitoring. See Monitor flow data.
