This widget on the Chassis Details page summarizes the health status of devices in a chassis, including fans, power supply units (PSUs), memory storage, CPUs, and input/output (I/O) modules.

Besides showing how many devices with sensors are in a chassis, you can see how devices relate to blades along with each blade's status. If the UCS controller can deliver sensor statistics, those values also appear.

A count of the total number of devices with a specific status appears at the top of the widget. Click a status icon to display devices with that current status.

The second row of icons represents device types; click an icon to control which type of devices appear in the chart.

Statuses are only available for filtering if a sensor in your environment is in that state. For example, if no sensors have a status of Down, the Down status is not available when filtering.
