6.2 Accessing the Inventory and Usage Details Page

To view inventory and usage details:

  1. From the Enterprise menu, select Configuration, and then select Inventory and Usage Details.

    Alternatively, you can click Details in the Inventory and Usage region of the Enterprise Summary page.

  2. Select the entity you want to examine and choose a roll-up option. For example, show all deployed hosts rolled up by platform. The page refreshes automatically upon selection.

  3. In any given row in the top table, there is a count bar next to the count that represents a percentage of the maximum count. For example, if the maximum number of hosts by platform is four, the bar for hosts represented on two platforms would be half as long. Click the bar to refresh the details table and chart for the row.
