Applicable to Entuity v19.0 P02 upwards. Please note, this replaces the existing live ping status functionality in earlier versions of Entuity, help and information about which can be found here.
Introduction to Live Status:
The Live Status dialog box provides quick access to the status and other high level data about selected objects. Live Status is available for the following objects:
- IP address.
You can select one or multiple objects and open the Live Status dialog box from the right-click context menu.
Once the Live Status dialog box is open, you can drag more objects into it, up to a maximum of 10 objects. The box will automatically update with the newly added objects. You can drag an object from the same tab or from another tab.
You can remove objects from the Live Status box by selecting one or more objects and clicking Remove.
Click Update to refresh the data. This replaces the live Ping functionality in earlier versions of Entuity.
The content of the Live Status box is as follows:
object status icon showing the current status of the object, as seen elsewhere in the Entuity UI. Please see this article for further information on object states in Entuity.
|Name||display name of the object. For e.g. ports and applications, the name of the parent object will also be displayed.|
|Ping Status||the ping response time in milliseconds for pingable objects. Devices, IP addresses and applications are always pingable. Ports may or may not be pingable, depending on if they have an IP address associated with them. Click Update in the Live Status box to update the ping status. This replaces the existing live Ping functionality in earlier versions of Entuity.|

From this context menu, you can also click Live Status again. The Live Status dialog box will refresh and simply show the live status of the selected object(s).
Navigating the UI with the Live Status box:
With the Live Status dialog box open, you can navigate between dashboards. The Live Status box will remain open, meaning that you can add new objects to it from the new dashboards that you visit.
The Live Status dialog box will remain open until you close it, or if you navigate to a non-dashboard page (e.g. the Administration page).
