Node Inventory

The Monitoring Node Inventory page lists all the monitoring nodes assigned to your account. It is accessed from Standard Views > Node Inventory.

Note: If you are missing monitoring nodes that you think should be assigned to your account, please contact Support at or your local Packet Power system administrator.

  1. Search for an item by clicking in the empty cell below the column header and then typing the entry for which you want to search.

  2. Click a 16-digit node number to view its detail page.

  3. Sort a column by clicking the column header (e.g., Monitoring node).

  4. Move to the next or previous page by clicking the arrows at the bottom of the table.

Power monitors

To view Power Monitors only, you can look at Power Monitoring Nodes.


Go to Panel Readings for more detail on viewing panel data.

Environmental monitors

Gateways, Hubs and Data Diodes

Friendly names make dashboards, reports and tables much easier to understand than a node's 16-digit ID (e.g., A800-0000-0000-1234). You may assign friendly names to power monitoring nodes, panels, environmental monitoring nodes, gateways, hubs and data diodes.

Creating Friendly Names

To create a friendly name:

  • Go to Standard Views → Node Inventory

Click the Node Name field to edit a nodes Friendly Name.

Once defined, the friendly name will be displayed throughout EMX.


Note that you can not use this process to assign friendly names to virtual circuits in a panel. See Virtual Panels for information about editing circuit level details.
