The following sections describe the default resources available on this view for managing your network.

Top 10 Subnets by % IP Address Space Usage

The Top 10 Subnets by % IP Address Space Usage resource provides an easily accessible report of IP address availability by defined subnet. Defined subnets are listed in decreasing order of IP address space percentage used (% IP Address Space Used). For each defined subnet, this resource provides a colored bar graph indicating the percentage of the total IP address space of your network that is currently in use or reserved. To provide further detail, this resource displays both the number of IP addresses designated for a selected subnet (IPs Used) and the number of IP addresses currently available for assignment (IPs Available) such that the % IP Address Space Used value is calculated as follows:
