Checking the endpoints status

Checking the computers status

Each computer is represented in the network page by an icon specific to its type and status.

Refer to Network object types and statuses for a list with all available icon types and statuses.

For detailed status information, refer to:

Management status

Computers can have the following management statuses:

  • computer_managed_online.png Managed - computers on which the security agent is installed.

  • vm_pending_restart.png Pending restart - endpoints that require a system restart after installing or updating Bitdefender protection.

  • computer_unmanaged_offline.png Unmanaged - detected computers on which the security agent has not been installed yet.

  • computer_deleted.png Deleted - computers that you have deleted from Control Center.

Connectivity status

The connectivity status concerns only the managed computers. From this viewpoint, managed computers can be:

  • computer_managed_online.png Online.

    A blue icon indicates that the computer is online.

  • computer_managed_offline.png Offline.

    A grey icon indicates that the computer is offline.

A computer is offline if the security agent is inactive for more than 5 minutes. Possible reasons why computers appear offline:

  • The computer is shut down, sleeping or hibernating.

    Note

    Computers appear online even when they are locked or the user is logged off.

  • The security agent does not have connectivity with the GravityZone Communication Server:

    • The computer might be disconnected from the network.

    • A network firewall or router might block the communication between the security agent and the GravityZone Communication Server.

    • The computer is behind a proxy server and the proxy settings have not been properly configured in the applied policy.

      Warning

      For computers behind a proxy server, the proxy settings must be properly configured in the security agent installation package, otherwise the computer will not communicate with GravityZone console and will always appear offline, no matter if a policy with the proper proxy settings is applied after installation.

  • The security agent might not be working properly.

To find out for how long computers have been inactive:

  1. Display only the managed computers. Click the Filters menu located at the upper side of the table, select all the "Managed" options that you need from the Security tab, choose All items recursively from the Depth tab and click Save.

  2. Click the Last seen column header to sort computers by inactivity period.

You can ignore shorter periods of inactivity (minutes, hours) as they are likely the result of a temporary condition.

For example, the computer is currently shut down.

Longer inactivity periods (days, weeks) usually indicate a problem with the computer.

Note

It is recommended to refresh the network table from time to time, to update the endpoints information with the latest changes.

Security status

The security status concerns only the managed computers. You can identify computers with security issues by checking the status icons displaying a warning symbol:

  • computer_managed_online_issue.png Computer managed, with issues, online.

  • computer_managed_offline_issue.png Computer managed, with issues, offline.

A computer has security issues provided at least one of the following situations applies:

  • Antimalware protection is disabled.

  • The license has expired.

  • The security agent product is outdated.

  • Security content is outdated.

  • Malware is detected.

  • The connection with Bitdefender Cloud Services could not be established, due to the following possible reasons:

    • The computer has internet connectivity issues.

    • A network firewall is blocking the connection with Bitdefender .

    • Port 443, required for the communication with Bitdefender , is closed.

    In this case, the antimalware protection relies solely on local engines, while in-the-cloud scanning is off, meaning that the security agent cannot provide full real-time protection.

If you notice a computer with security issues, click its name to display the Information window.

You can identify the security issues by the critical.png icon. Make sure to check for security information in all the information page's tabs.

Display the icon's tooltip to find out more details.

Further local investigations may be needed.

Note

It is recommended to refresh the network table from time to time, to update the endpoints information with the latest changes.

Checking the virtual machines status

Each virtual machine is represented in the network page by an icon specific to its type and status.

Refer to Network object types and statuses for a list with all available icon types and statuses.

For detailed status information, refer to:

Management status

Virtual machines can have the following management statuses:

  • vm_online_managed.png Managed - virtual machines on which Bitdefender protection is installed.

  • vm_pending_restart.png Pending restart - virtual machines that require a system restart after installing or updating Bitdefender protection.

  • vm_offline_unmanaged.png Unmanaged - detected virtual machines on which Bitdefender protection has not been installed yet.

  • vm_deleted.png Deleted - virtual machines that you have deleted from Control Center.

    For more information, refer to Deleting endpoints from network inventory.

Connectivity status

The connectivity status concerns managed virtual machines and Security Servers. From this viewpoint, managed virtual machines can be:

  • vm_online_managed.png sva.pngOnline. A blue icon indicates that the machine is online.

  • vm_offline_managed.png sva_offline.png Offline. A grey icon indicates that the machine is offline.

A virtual machine is offline if the security agent is inactive for more than 5 minutes. Possible reasons why virtual machines appear offline:

  • The virtual machine is shut down, sleeping or hibernating.

    Note

    Virtual machines appear online even when they are locked or the user is logged off.

  • The security agent does not have connectivity with the GravityZone Communication Server:

    • The virtual machine might be disconnected from the network.

    • A network firewall or router might block the communication between the security agent and Bitdefender Control Center or the assigned Endpoint Security Relay.

    • The virtual machine is behind a proxy server and the proxy settings have not been properly configured in the applied policy.

      Warning

      For virtual machines behind a proxy server, the proxy settings must be properly configured in the security agent installation package, otherwise the virtual machine will not communicate with GravityZone console and will always appear offline, no matter if a policy with the proper proxy settings is applied after installation.

  • The security agent has been manually uninstalled from the virtual machine, while the virtual machine did not have connectivity with Bitdefender Control Center or with the assigned Endpoint Security Relay. Normally, when the security agent is being manually uninstalled from a virtual machine, Control Center is notified of this event, and the virtual machine is flagged as unmanaged.

  • The security agent might not be working properly.

To find out for how long virtual machines have been inactive:

  1. Display only the managed virtual machines. Click the Filters menu located at the upper side of the table, select all the "Managed" options that you need from the Security tab, choose All items recursively from the Depth tab and click Save.

  2. Click the Last Seen column header to sort virtual machines by inactivity period.

You can ignore shorter periods of inactivity (minutes, hours) as they are likely the result of a temporary condition.

For example, the virtual machine is currently shut down.

Longer inactivity periods (days, weeks) usually indicate a problem with the virtual machine.

Note

It is recommended to refresh the network table from time to time, to update the endpoints information with the latest changes.
