Host Inventory

With the NetQ UI, you can monitor your inventory of hosts across the network or individually. A user can monitor a host’s operating system, ASIC, CPU model, disk, and memory information to help manage upgrades, compliance, and other planning tasks.

Access Host Inventory Data

The Inventory | Hosts card monitors the hardware- and software-component inventory on hosts running NetQ in your network. Access this card from the NetQ Workbench, or add it to your own workbench by clicking (Add card) > Inventory > Inventory | Hosts card > Open Cards.

NetQ displays host status and components on the Inventory | Hosts card as a donut chart. The number fresh and rotten hosts will be displayed in the card. Additionally, you can view data for the following host components:

  • Disk
  • Operating system
  • ASIC
  • CPU
  • Platform
  • Memory

Hover over the chart in the default card view to view component details. To view the distribution of components, hover over the card header and increase the card’s size.
