When, By monitoring devices of applications with low health, you can evaluate whether these device issues will require mitigation or prevention measures.

  2. Select the application name that hosts the application service with lowered health.
    Only TCP and HTTP application services provide device information. For DNS application services, you can use Wide IP alerts to evaluate device management of DNS traffic.
