Meraki Health - Network-Wide

The Meraki Network Health widget is simply a snapshot view of all available device statuses in one place. The widget displays the number of “healthy” (non alerting) devices in the numerator, over the total devices of the same group in the denominator. When one or more devices, in any given device group, are alerting or offline, the entire group status color will adjust accordingly and display the worst status in that group. By clicking on the device group, a user will navigate to the device group page, specific navigation logic detailed below:    

Clients Page
