1.4. Navigating around sFlowTrend-Pro using the history navigator

You can navigate around sFlowTrend-Pro by selecting tabs in the Tab bar to view and analyse the sFlow data. In addition, sFlowTrend-Pro includes a History navigator.

When you move to a different tab or you change the settings in the viewed tab (for example changing the selected switch, interface or chart in the Network > Flows tab), the History navigator automatically saves the tab and its settings changes in the history of viewed tabs and their settings. You can use the and buttons to move backwards and forwards through the history of viewed tabs and their settings, in much the same way as you would use the back and forward buttons in a web browser to navigate through the history of viewed web pages.

The History navigator also includes the ability to bookmark favourite tabs and their settings so that you can return to a tab configured with the saved settings at a later time. This is particularly useful if your favourite tabs include many special settings (eg filters).

You can also access the functions of the History navigator using the Navigate menu. (see Section 16.1, “Menu reference”)
