    Can we have the Docker_Monitor probe listed for the correct probe package please? Here it is listed as 'None' and in our internal documentation we can see that it is part of the Cloud/SaaS 'probe package' (Functional Area).

    Also is it possible to have the 'Probe Package' titled to be more appropriate in this list please? i.e. 'Functional Area'; as we have the probe packs (So Docker_Monitor is part of the Server and Application pack) but the Docker_Monitor 'Functional Area' is Cloud/SaaS. If it is also possible to include a column for the Probe Pack information this would also benefit clarity for how the probes are classed and delivered.

    Many thanks in advance

    The Left/Right Scroll Bar is all the way at the bottom. If you are trying to read this very long/tall table and are looking at an item that is not near the bottom it is difficult to scroll left/right, unless you go all the way to the bottom and then L/R scroll, only to return to where you were to see the results. Allow the browser to control the left/right scroll bar. Or another idea is to Lock the L/R scroll bar so it is always on the screen no matter where you are within this table you can easily scroll Left/Right.
