System and infrastructure results can be viewed in the Insights console. The Overview tab provides a dashboard view of current risks to your infrastructure. From this starting point, you can investigate how a specific rule is affecting your system, or take a system-based approach to view all the rule matches that pose a risk to the system.

  1. Select Rule hits by severity to view rules by the Total Risk they pose to your infrastructure (Critical, Important, Moderate, or Low).

    Or

  2. Select Rule hits by category to see the type of risk they pose to your infrastructure (Availability, Stability, Performance, or Security).
  3. Search for a specific rule by name, or scroll through the list of rules to see high-level information about risk, systems exposed, and availability of Ansible Playbook to automate remediation.
  4. Click on a rule to see a description of the rule, learn more from relevant knowledge base articles, and view a list of systems that are affected.
  5. Click on a system to see specific information about detected issues and steps to resolve the issue.
