The Devices page lists each device and allows you to quickly interact with one or more devices, such as by renaming them, force-triggering an acquisition, or rebooting them. Additionally, the Details tab of the Device Configuration page allows you to view the online/offline status of all devices, as well as counts of how many times common operations occurred, such as connection changes and files written. Access the Device Configuration page by using the navigation bar at the top of the page.

Viewing Device Health and Recent Features

The NI InsightCM web application also provides several ways for you to view information about the health, operation, and data acquired by individual devices. The following table describes these tools and how to access them.

Daily Disconnections between Devices and Server

By default, NI InsightCM Server temporarily disconnects devices once per day as a security-related feature. If you notice that devices go offline briefly at the same time each day, this feature might be the cause.
