Global views are a set of views, listed directly under the Monitoring node in the Monitoring pane of the Operations console, that include information from all object types in your deployment of Operations Manager 2007. They are designed to give a high-level overview of the latest issues and actions that have occurred in your management group.

Because items in these views include all objects in your management group, each view can contain a lengthy list of objects. To find a particular object or group of objects from these lists, you can use the Scope, Search, and Find buttons on the Operations Manager toolbar. For more information, see How to Manage Monitoring Data Using Scope, Search, and Find.
