nDepth includes a variety of commonly-used widgets similar to the widgets in the Ops Center. Each widget represents a high-level graphical view of the specific network activity associated with your nDepth search results. The widget displays the primary items generating an activity, as well as the count (or number of incidents)??for each item.
