Search results may contain one or more of the following buttons across the top of the page:
- Status status of the device and its interfaces. (see Sentinel:Traffic>Status).

- 10.1.1.254, search for a specific device address
- switch1.inmon.com, search for a specific device by dns name
- *v?1.0*, search for agents running version 1.0 firmware based on their sysDescr strings.

The * symbol in a pattern matches any sequence of zero or more characters, for example the pattern router* would match: "router", "routers", "router123" etc. The ? symbol matches any single character, for example the pattern router? would match: "routers", "router1", "router2", but not "router" or "router12".
