About this task

InfiniBox provides visibility to the status and health of the system hardware. This view includes the status of the system rack, nodes, enclosures, and drives.

The System Health and the Hardware Components part of the screen provide clickable visual hints on the system health. Going over an indicator allow focusing on a health issue.
