The Cisco PVM monitor function provides near real-time and real-time access to resource data, as well
as summary views of aggregated traffic data with drill-down capability, formatted into tables and graphs
for troubleshooting and analyzing current network performance. Cisco PVM displays individual and
aggregated NAM metrics, including displays for single NAM data sources, for multiple NAM data
aggregated across the network, and for all NAMs. Additionally, the Monitor tab displays a snapshot of
current network activity immediately upon access.

Using the Monitor function, you can display near real-time and dynamic traffic data for applications,
hosts, conversations, DCSP groups, switches and routers, and VLAN data. You can view network
resources based on these data sources and drill down to access details about a particular resource.
Reports can be viewed, printed, and saved as PDF, Microsoft Excel, and Rich Text Format files.


Reports generated under the Monitor tab are not archived.
