Status Menus:Screen Conventions

Applies to version(s): v2.5, v2.6.

Most of the status screens are designed by default to provide the most relevant information in the general view. This general view may be extended to provide more information. In addition, status information can either be displayed once upon accessing a status screen or it can be refreshed on demand, or on a periodic basis. The choice is up to the user and this feature is common to every status screen. Another feature common to most screens is the ability to reset the values of displayed counters. This feature is key in enabling the user to verify whether certain conditions persist.
