Sun Management Center 3.6.1 User's Guide

Physical View

When you select the Physical view - system option, the software displays a photo-realistic picture of the selected host, if available. Pictures are not available for some system types.

Note –

This feature is usable only if the host is monitored by a Sun Management Center agent.

As you move the mouse pointer over the picture of the system being viewed, some of the components are highlighted. The detailed component information displays in the right section of the viewing window. The path name of the component is displayed in the Component field at the bottom of the window.

If a component has an alarm, a colored line appears around the component to indicate the alarm severity. This line enables you to identify quickly the faulty component.

For some systems, you can select alternate front, rear, and side views through the Rotate Current View pull-down menu. Pictures are not available for some system types.

Click a highlighted component to display the detailed picture of the component. When you are finished viewing component details, click Up to return to the parent system view.
