1E 23.11 (SaaS)

Device View

The Device View is a shared page accessible from many applications.

The Overview and 1E Client tabs are always present in the Device View. Other tabs are visible if an app has been installed and is licensed.

Each tab has one or more panels with tiles populated with data from various sources, some by instructions that are run instantly, with results cached for 3 minutes. An appropriate error message is displayed instead of a tile in the following circumstances:

  • If the device is offline, as indicated by the color of the icon in the top left

  • The user does not have at least Viewer permission to view use the license the tab or panel

  • The user does not have questioner permission to run the instruction

  • An instruction has not been uploaded.

The Device View tabs and panels page lists the names of tabs and their panels, and a description of each tile indicating how the tile is populated.

The Device view in other 1E platform applications

The Device View is a common view used in multiple apps to present device details. The aim of the Device view is to provide a combined overview of all the information known about a device along with the ability to retrieve information about the device in real-time. Each application displays a different default tab (see below), other tabs are visible if an application has been installed and licensed, and the user has permission to use the application.

Content

Content Titles on the selected device, the default view is from All Sources, All Types and All Status.

Note

You may see a difference in the number of items in a device’s Nomad cache versus that displayed in the Content Distribution app Device View. This is because if downloaded content has been deleted from Configuration Manager, the content titles cannot be resolved in the Content Distribution app and are not displayed. This is under consideration for re-design and may be revised in future versions of Content Distribution.

Virtual Memory Usage KB

Average Virtual Memory Usage KB during the last 24-hour reporting period.

Processor Time Seconds

Each instance of the executable will burn processor time. This column gives the average of the total time consumed by each process instance per second. Each instance uses the sum of all time used by each core in parallel.

Therefore, it is possible to see more seconds here than in a day (usually 60 x 60 x 24 = 86400) for the whole column, if your system is working extremely hard 24x7. The theoretical maximum would be somewhere near number of cores x seconds per day . Hence, 'Processor Time' rather than 'Human Time'

Processor Time %

This is an easier notion than Processor Time Seconds. This is the average of the processor consumption of each instance. Each instance of this process will have caused different percentages of compute resource in all the processors and cores to be used over time (unless they have specifically requested certain core affinity).

For each minute each process is running, a profile of the usage is built for the whole day. This value is the average of all of those samples. There is no way to work out, for any one of the process instances involved, how long any particular instance was running for. This could indicate a process that is going wild with resources, but it would take more investigation on the device to discover for how long this is happening. It is perfectly possible to see all the values in this column adding up to more than 100% as the processes were not necessarily running at the same time.

Responsiveness Impact %

An indicator of how reactive a process is to activity by other processes on the device. Typically, anti-virus products watch and respond to potentially suspicious activity such as increased network traffic. Anti-virus products will differ in their impact on the overall performance of a device.

Note

Responsiveness Impact % is used to indicate how sensitive a process appears to be to the use of system resources by other processes on a device. For example, Security Protection software present on a device may reveal a spike in its activity whenever a new process is started on that device.

This would typically be because the Security Protection software may wish to ensure that the new process starting on the device is present in a security white list. Other software may also react to activity by other processes and by reacting they impact system resource uses, thereby adversely affecting the user's experience. So it is useful to be able to identify software with the highest Responsiveness Impact on a device and potentially investigate further.

Note

Responsiveness Impact % represents the proportion of the increased CPU activity detected by the 1E Client as a result of performing a set of operating system-level operations that can be attributed to a given running process. Examples of these would be Windows registry and resource creation operations.

It is reported as a percentage to normalize results across devices that offer a range of computing power.

For example, if software.exe on a device is attributed a Responsiveness Impact of 53% this means that more than half of the spike in CPU usage caused by software monitoring activity on that device can be attributed to software.

Handle Count

Average number of Windows handles used by this software during the last 24-hour reporting period.

Physical Memory Usage KB

Average Physical Memory Usage KB during the last 24-hour reporting period.

Note

Please refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/rammap for a useful tool to examine physical memory allocation on a device.
