Component Host and IP Address Search (BMC Truesight Operations Manager)


In this article, we will build a report to examine the metric Component Host and IP Address Search. The product for this report is the BMC Truesight Operations Manager. We’ll be using many different visualizations to examine this metric, including a KPI, Treemap, and a small demo on changing themes in a report.
