Hosts Section

The Hosts section of the Monitoring page displays a list of the discovered hosts, the system type of the hosts, and a stacked bar chart. The chart is labeled and color-coded to indicate both the number and severity level of vulnerabilities detected on the host.

Select a host from the list to display the host’s attributes and discovered vulnerabilities. In the drop-down menu at the top of the section, select one of the following options to view relevant information:

Vulnerabilities

Vulnerabilities detected on this host appear in descending order of severity. The vulnerabilities list displays the name of each vulnerability, vulnerability family, and the number of vulnerabilities discovered. Select a vulnerability from the list to display vulnerability details including a synopsis, description, solution, plugin information, risk information, reference information, and affected ports and services for the host.
