The main elements of the PEM client interface are the Tabbed Dashboard Browser, the Main Toolbar, and the Tree Control as shown in Figure 3.1.PEM uses a standard tree control to connect to and navigate through the contents of all managed servers. The menus provide easy access to various tasks, and are context sensitive so only those tasks that are appropriate for the selected object are active. The graphical toolbar provides quick access to the most commonly used tasks and utilities.The right pane of the client interface allows you to use tabbed browsing to review details about selected objects in the tree control. Like most web browsers, you can open multiple tabs for different views, close selected tabs when you're finished reviewing the contents, and navigate through multiple reports on the same tab using back and forward toolbar buttons.Note that some utilities and interfaces in PEM do not run within the client interface, but instead open in a separate interactive dialog. These include interfaces such as the SQL IDE and the SQL Profiler. This allows for greater flexibility when using these tools on systems with multiple monitors or virtual desktops.
