Summary

Tachyon Explorer lets you view details for devices on your network including real-time visibility of which devices are currently connected (online) and can therefore be interacted with directly.

Device details are stored in the Tachyon Master database and not in the inventory repositories. They are updated each time a client connects to a Tachyon Switch.

Please refer to Tachyon Platform 5.2 - Using Inventory for details of inventory repositories.
