About the Summary Counts Portlet

The Summary Counts portlet on the HQ Dashboard shows resource counts by inventory type, and if configured to do so, counts for selected resource types. (For information about inventory and resource types, see Resources, Resource Types and Inventory Types). By default, the Summary Counts portlet shows the total resources of each inventory type — Application, Platform, Server, Service, Compatible Group, and Mixed Group — as shown in the screenshot below.
