When you select a device or a group of nodes in the main area of the program, all information on Special fields is displayed: containing data on Common and Special fields.
This section can also contain information about operating SNMP fields from the SNMP tree.
If full data is collected from SNMP devices in your network (the "Full SNMP scan" option is active in the TNI settings), then from the "Viewer and Reports" mode in the SNMP Tree section, you can quickly create a Common SNMP field via the context menu on the selected report line.
After that, all the data collected by this OID will be automatically copied to the Common fields of SNMP devices, and in the Custom Information mode, you can quickly and conveniently browse a device.
You can add, edit, and delete common fields on the Custom Fields page.
In the on-screen reports mode, when you select the Barcodes mode, all information on a group of devices or an individual device containing barcodes is displayed.
The information contained in the barcode itself is displayed below it. In this mode, you can quickly view all barcodes if they are available and assigned to devices.
Adding, changing or deleting barcodes is available in the Barcode management section.
