Hosts summary pages

A number hosts summary pages give you summary information about host instances across your entire infrastructure, and each page queries the data platform for specific attributes belonging to each instance.

Note: A facet represents a set of related attributes, each one independently maintained, that describe a certain aspect of a discovered resource.

All hosts

Click the All Hosts dashboard card to see a list of on-premises and cloud hosts running on your infrastructure. To populate the list, the UI queries the data platform for discovered host and computeHost facets:

  • The Name of the host, derived from the name attribute.

  • The IP address of the host, derived from the privateIPv4 attribute.

  • The OS and OS version running on the host, derived from the os and osVersion attributes.

    Important: If no operating system, version, or uptime is listed, it means you haven't provided credentials for the host, or it could be a network device. To add credentials, click Settings > Credentials.
  • The Uptime of the host, in seconds, derived from the uptime attribute.

  • The Last scan of the host represented by the data platform timestamp in UTC.

  • The Puppet version running on the host, derived from the puppetVersion attribute.
