Host Viewer

The Host Viewer is viewable by selecting "Show Hosts" at the dropdown at the top of the rack. The Host Viewer shows the information stored in the host table which is a global table that tracks local hosts and the various information about them.

Current Hosts

The Current Hosts tab shows all the currently known (local) hosts and all the information about them.

Many applications store information about the various hosts on the network. For example, If a user logs into Captive Portal, the Captive Portal will store the associated username in the host table so other applications know this information about this hosts. Each row show a given host and all the information currently stored for that host (IP).
