The Impact tab displays the objects affected by the selected notification. This tab appears for any type of event, including critical problems. Not all events affect other objects, so the Impact tab may not display.

The tab presents information in a table. To sort it, click one of the column headings. In the table, you can view the affected object’s class and event.

For more information about an object, you can double-click its row to display the Notification Properties dialog box. Or, right-click it and select Browse to display a Topology Browser. You can also right-click a row and select Show Map to display it in a Map Console.

“Caused By tabâ€� on page 66 contains information on displaying the events which, in turn, cause the selected notification.


Client and server tools can be invoked from notifications displayed in the Notification Properties Impact tab.
