|Hosts||Number of hosts in the group (displayed in grey). Clicking on "Hosts" will, in the whole listing of hosts, filter out those that belong to the group.|
|Templates||Number of templates in the group (displayed in grey). Clicking on "Templates" will, in the whole listing of templates, filter out those that belong to the group.|
|Members||Names of group members. Template names are displayed in grey, monitored host names in blue and non-monitored host names in red. Clicking on a name will open the template/host configuration form.|
|Info||Error information (if any) regarding the host group is displayed.|
