The Health Control Center


Introduction to HCC

The Health Control Center window displays the status of selected objects. The Health Control Center pane allows you to see at a glance the health of a complete country, organization or network by a single click in the directory tree.

The object statuses are periodically refreshed, which gives you permanent control over every part of your information system and network.

In addition, a dedicated tool bar gives you the ability to hide unwanted or superfluous information and thus restrict the display to the most important indicators.
