A property table label
Individual table cells organized into rows and columns
Sun Management Center tables contain two types of cells: editable and noneditable.
If you edit information in the cell and you provide an invalid value, an error window appears. Click OK to close the error window. Then, re-enter an appropriate value in the table cell.
Editable cells have one of the following types of cell editors:
The text cell editor is invoked if the cell is a string type. Once the cell is selected, the text cursor is activated at the end of the text string. If there is no text, the cursor is aligned left in the cell. To save the information in the cell, press Return.
A check box is a component with only two choices:
The combo box cell editor has a drop-down menu that displays an associated list of options. The current choice appears in the combo box. As you move the cursor over the list, each option is highlighted. The option that you choose from the list replaces the current selection.
For selected modules, the software enables you to add, delete, enable, or disable rows for the data property tables. When these modules are initially loaded, the data property tables are empty, except the Directory Size Monitoring and Print Spooler modules. For the File Monitoring, File Scanning, and Directory Size Monitoring modules, you must add a row to monitor the data property. The following table lists the modules that allow you to add rows.Table 8–1 Sun Management Center Modules to Which You Can Add Rows
Directory Size Monitoring
For more information about the directory size monitoring, file monitoring, file scanning, print spooler, and process monitoring modules, see Appendix C, Sun Management Center Software Modules.
The row context menu provides access to various row-related functions, such as enabling you to add rows to a table that allows this behavior. To activate a row context menu, press mouse button 3 in the appropriate row.
Information in tables can be sorted by column. If a column header has a triangle that points up or down, you can change the order of the table display based on that column. Depending on the data in the column, the sort uses one of the following keys:
To change between an ascending and descending sort, double-click the header of the sorted column.
The icons enable you to navigate as follows:
Return to the first page
Return to the previous page
Go to the next page
Go to the final page
In addition, a pull-down menu to the right of these icons enables you to go to a specific page.
On selected module properties, the software enables you to use predetermined UNIX commands including list files, the vmstat command, and so on. The Probe button is available only for selected properties. Otherwise, the button is unavailable and is dimmed.
The available Probe commands can sometimes be difficult to distinguish. As an example, consider the Filesystem Usage properties in the Kernel Reader module. The Find All Recent Files probe commands find only files that were created or modified less than 24 hours ago. The Find All Files probe commands find all files regardless of the date and time that the files were created or modified. For more information about the Filesystem Usage properties, see File System Usage Table.
