Monitor Live Wired Clients

The “Live Wired Clients section of the Monitor Clients dashboard includes widgets that show the unique Live wired Clients associated with the managed Devices.

The Network Analytics Summary at the top of the dashboard displays the total number of Access Points, Access Points Up, Down Count, number of Live Wireless and Wired Clients, total number of Switches, Switches Up and Down Count in the Network.

Data displayed in each widget can be exported into a CSV, PDF or Excel sheet format. You can also switch the widgets to full-screen mode for a better display.
