Overview

Prior to monitoring your network Statseeker must be made aware of the devices within the network via the Discovery process. Once a device has been discovered by Statseeker, data is collected and stored, and users are able to report, dashboard, and alert on that data. For more information on this process, see Statseeker Discovery.

A default Statseeker installation contains a few ways to view counts of, or details on, the devices that Statseeker is currently monitoring. In addition, custom reports, dashboards, and alerts can quickly and easily be configured to suit your requirements.

Statseeker License Details - device count

Your Statseeker License record contains a count of devices that Statseeker is currently monitoring. This count is updated whenever Statseeker rebuilds its configuration information, a background process which is run as a component of many processes including device discovery, network rewalks, retiring and deleting devices.

To view your current device count:

  • Select Admin Tool > General > License Key
  • Review the details in the Entity Information section
