Device Summary

On the Device Summary page for any Firebox or FireCluster connected to Dimension, you can see summary information in these categories: device health, basic device details, the most active policies on your Firebox (managed Fireboxes only), device configuration history (managed Fireboxes only), and a link to the Health Summary report. The information you see on the Device Summary page depends on the type of connection the Firebox makes to Dimension (logging or management) and whether you select a single Firebox or a FireCluster. For managed Fireboxes, you can also open Fireware Web UI, reboot the Firebox, or update the feature key.
