The Containment dialog box provides detailed information about a managed element. Containment information varies depending upon the type of element and the type of analysis being performed by the underlying domain. As examples, for a network connection, the containment information includes details about connection points; for a device managed by IP Performance Manager, containment information includes details about the device’s memory.
The Containment dialog box is available for selected notifications in the Notification Log Console, for selected instances in the Topology Browser Console, and for selected nodes in the Map Console. When an element is managed by multiple Domain Managers, the Containment dialog box includes all the containment information for each domain.
