Clicking the >> link will re-display the screen showing data specific to the entity type selected.

List of Summary Entities

This table provides a list showing the status, name and type of all monitored entities. In addition, the Duration column shows how long an entity has been in a 'Down' state and the 'Last Fail' column shows the time when an entity last went down (failed). Clicking on an entity name will open the Availability Details for Entity Display which provides detailed availability information for the selected entity.
