Tags provide an additional way, besides groups, to arrange your hosts.

For example, you may wish to tag all Ubuntu servers, or servers belonging to a particular client if you are a freelancer, or virtual servers versus dedicated servers. Keep in mind that multiple tags can be used. A descriptive set of tags should make it much simpler to search through a large list of hosts.

Tags are displayed next to hostnames on the Hosts screen.
