Dashboard Metrics bar

Sections

The Metrics bar at the top of the Vulnerabilities dashboard provides a breakdown of key metrics regarding affected nodes on your network.

The Metrics bar at the top of the Vulnerabilities dashboard provides a breakdown of key metrics regarding affected nodes, including:

  • Nodes: - The total number of nodes currently discovered by Puppet Remediate. Click on this area to go to the Nodes page.
    Note: The result shown in this area may differ from that displayed in the Vulnerable Nodes area if your scanner duplicates nodes owing to IP address reuse. The Nodes area ignores duplicates in this instance.
  • Vulnerable Nodes: The total number of discovered nodes currently assessed as vulnerable. Clicking on this area takes you to the Most vulnerable nodes page.
  • The total number of vulnerabilities across all discovered nodes. Click this area to visit the Total Vulnerabilities page.
    Note: The result shown in this area may differ from that displayed in the Vulnerable Nodes area if your scanner duplicates nodes owing to IP address reuse. The Nodes area ignores duplicates in this instance.
  • The risk score of the most severe vulnerabilities according to your vulnerability scanner. Click this area to go to the Vulnerability detail page for this vulnerability, where you’ll see what nodes are affected, and from where you can run remediation tasks.
  • The number of vulnerabilities on the node with the most vulnerabilities. Clicking this area takes you to the Node detail page for your most vulnerable node. Again, from this page you can initiate remediate tasks to clean vulnerabilities from the node.
  • The Metrics bar also contains a search box you can use to find out more detail on a vulnerability if you have its CVE number. Searching here take you to the Vulnerability detail page where you can see nodes affected by the selected vulnerability, and also run tasks to remediate it.

A full overview of the information provided by the Vulnerabilities dashboard Metrics bar is contained in the following video.
