Menu Controls

The [Customize] button in the System Lists region enables you to customize the System Lists region tree to your own preference. Any user can customize their own System Lists and Event Lists folders and My Favorites folders, but only the user who has full configuration rights can customize the public System Lists and Event Lists folders. Click [Customize] to display the Customize Lists page.

You can also click expand all menu items expand menu icon to expand all of the menu lists or click collapse all menu items collapse menu icon to collapse the menu lists.

Overview Lists

There are three overview lists in the System Lists region:

  • Status Overview. Displays the Status Overview page. Refer to Monitoring Systems, Events, and Clusters - Viewing the Status Overview Page for more information.

    • System Status. Contains the severity of all systems discovered by HP Systems Insight Manager. Systems are grouped by their status condition and type. Each underlined number in a column is a hyperlink to a more detailed list of systems that belong to this System Status list. These are hidden lists that are embedded in the program and cannot be edited.

    • Uncleared Event Status. Lists the number of uncleared events that have a Critical, Major, Minor, or Normal severity. Events are grouped by their severity and system type. Each underlined number in a column is a hyperlink to a more detailed list of events that belong to this Event Status list. These are hidden lists that are embedded in the program and cannot be edited.

    Both displays are sorted using the following System Categories:

    • Servers

    • Clusters

    • Clients

    • Networking

    • Printers

    • Other

  • All Systems. Displays the System List: All Systems page. Refer to System Lists Page - Navigating the System Lists Page for information on the system list page.

  • All Events. Displays the Event List: All Events page. Refer to Event Lists Page - Navigating the Event Lists Page for information on the event list results page.

My Favorites

Lists can be grouped together into My Favorites groups that you create. Lists in the My Favorites groups of logged-in users are run internally by HP Systems Insight Manager to produce status. You can only access the My Favorites that you create and not those created by another user. My Favorites groups are references of system lists, event lists, or cluster lists that are public or private lists.

System Lists

A system list logically groups systems into a collection based on information in the HP Systems Insight Manager database. After a list is defined, you can display the results on the system list page or associate it with a management task.

Creating logical groups of systems reduces the number of systems viewed in a particular system list. For example, your organization might have five system administrators who are responsible for 100 different systems in six different buildings. You can create a list for each administrator that includes only their systems, or you can create a list for each building that includes only the systems located in a particular building.

Lists are listed by section and list-folder. In addition to using the lists provided by HP Systems Insight Manager, you can create, edit, or delete lists, or create folders of lists under each section of lists. Lists must follow specific list naming rules. Refer to Reference - List Naming Conventions for more information.

Complex lists that contain individual systems selections or numerous search criteria take more system resources to run. Keep the list as simple as possible to minimize the performance impacts of individual tasks. Refer to Reference - Default Public Lists for a list of all public system lists.

Event Lists

An event list logically groups events into a collection based on information in the HP Systems Insight Manager database. Creating logical groups of events reduces the number of events viewed in a particular event list. After a list is defined, you can display the results from the event list page or associate it with a management task.

Lists are listed by section and folder. You can create folders of lists under each section.

Complex lists that contain individual system selections or numerous selection criteria take more system resources to run. Keep the list as simple as possible to minimize the performance impacts of individual tasks. Refer to Reference - Default Public Lists for a list of all public event lists.
