Traffic lights in Administration Console

Administration Console allows you to quickly assess the current status of Kaspersky Security Center and managed devices by checking traffic lights. The traffic lights are shown in the workspace of the Administration Server node, on the Monitoring tab. The tab provides six information panels with traffic lights. A traffic light is a colored vertical bar on the left side of a panel. Each panel with a traffic light corresponds to a specific functional scope of Kaspersky Security Center (see the table below).
