You can use queries to view information about all aspects of your Symantec ESM data. Queries are dynamic. You can take out columns and replace them with others. You can take a query that shows the security level of managers in a domain and add a column to the query. You can then dynamically see information about the security levels of agents on managers in a domain. You can add a column and see that same information for a specific policy, or see which agents comply with a specific check. Queries let you filter data and allow you to see information for only those components that you need.
