This section describes how devices added to AFA can be viewed and their reports analyzed, on their own or within the context of a group or matrix.
For details, see:
|View AFA device data||
Describes how to work with individual devices and their reports.
|View AFA group data||
Describes how to work with groups of devices, and reports that cover the entire group.
AFA groups are sets of devices that are managed together without any connection to the relationships between the member devices. AFA treats groups as a single unit, providing a birds-eye view of your group-wide risk exposure.
Tip: AFA provides a default group called ALL_FIREWALLS. This group includes all devices in the entire system, and enables you to generate reports for all your AFA devices.
|View AFA matrix data||
Describes how to work with matrices, and reports that cover then entire matrix.
AFA matrices are sets of devices that are managed together with consideration as to the relationships between the member devices. When a matrix is created, AFA attempts to calculate the relationships between the devices, and also enables you to edit the topology manually.
AFA manages a matrix's policy as a single unit, providing a birds-eye view of your matrix-wide risk exposure.
