Component groups is an explicit organizer that enables arbitrary groupings of device components in the Resource Manager interface.
Use component groups to view or manage device component resources as a logical group. When you add device components to a component group, you can view all of the events for the group in a single location, display device component graphs with all of the device components on the same graph, and use the Dynamic and Dependencies views to see the group's dependents and dependencies. You can also monitor or lock individual device components in the group or the entire group itself.
