This widget displays the latest data from temperature, memory, and CPU sensors for managed UCS blades and rack servers that appear as hyperlinks beneath each sensor type.

The status for most items will read OK, Warning, or Critical, depending upon the set threshold values and returned values. Icon colors change between green, yellow, and red, respectively. Gray icons indicate a status of Unknown, which suggests a polling failure.

This widget appears on the Node Details pages for managed UCS blades and rack servers, by default.
