The fields listed in the table below are displayed in columns on the Host View based on the selections you make in the Settings window. These fields are also used in custom filters to search for hosts. See Search and filter options. Additional fields that can be displayed on the Host View are fields for the user associated with the selected host. See Search settings.

You may not have access to all of the fields listed in this table. Access depends on the type of license key installed and which features are enabled in that license.

Field

Definition

Agent Platform

Distinguishes between Windows, macOS, iOS, and Mobile Agent.

Agent Version

The version number of the Persistent Agent, Mobile Agent, or Dissolvable Agent installed on the host.

None is displayed if the host is a type set to by-pass the agent scan in the endpoint compliance configuration.

Allowed Hosts

The number of hosts that can be associated with or registered to this user and connect to the network. There are two ways to reach this total.

If the host is scanned by an agent or if adapters have been manually associated with hosts, then a single host with up to five adapters counts as one host.

If the host is not scanned by an agent or if the adapters have not been associated with specific hosts, then each adapter is counted individually as a host. In this scenario one host with two network adapters would be counted as two hosts.

Numbers entered in this field override the default setting in System > Settings > Network Device. Blank indicates that the default is used. See Network device.

If an administrator exceeds the number of hosts when registering a host to a user, a warning message is displayed indicating that the number of Allowed Hosts has been incremented and the additional hosts are registered to the user.

Applications

Applications running on the host. Categories of applications include: antivirus, Hotfixes and operating system.

For example, if the user logs off the network on August 1st and Inactivity Limit is set to 2 days, the Inactivity Date becomes August 3rd. If on August 2nd the user logs back in again, the Inactivity Date is blank until the next time he logs out. Then the value is recalculated again. To modify click Set.
