Ports

This summary portlet displays discovered device ports.

This displays a list of ports, with columns for Port Icon, Equipment Name, Name, Type and Encapsulation. Hover the cursor over the State column, and a popup appears to display the port’s Name, Type and Operational State information. Right-clicking offers a subset of the actions listed in Managed Resources. You can also create links. See Links. See Port Editor for details of the editor specifically for ports.

If the Ports summary portlet appears on the same page as the Managed Resources portlet, then a selection made in Managed Resources makes the Ports portlet display only ports for the selected resource. This “filter” through Managed Resources disables filters configured through the settings menu. See Display Rules and Context for more about this feature and the Context icon that appears with the portlet when it applies.
