I am new to NNMi
In Inventory --- Interfaces, how to understand when was the particular interface went down
what are these options such as Details, Interface gauge, status History, state poller, capabilities, conclusion, registration explains about ?

Details- lists all those configuration type items associated with that interface. What type it is, what speed, duplex, mac address, description, etc.
Interface guage is a real time query that sees what those counters current values are
Status history is a historical list of any issues that have occured on that interface
State poller is a list of all the values returned when NNMI last polled it.
Capibilities is what SNMP supported MIBs are available to gather information from it.
Conclusion is a determination of how its in its curent state.
Registration is when that interface was first discovered, the last time it was modified, its identification in the system and its UUID (Universal Unique Identification which is used more by integrations with other products or SPIs)

In Status history if it shows time with Unknown status something like 17.3 hours and time with No Status 1 days,
What is the difference between Unknown status and No Status.
Just to find out how to troubleshoot when interface or node goes down in nnmi

Unknown means that there is no way to determin the status of an element. This usually happns when theres no connecitivity (device is isolated), or access credentials/access control lists for that device from/to the NNMI server are incorrect.
No status means that the system isnt polling that element. This is either by a specific explusion thats been configured or by the default rule which only manages interfaces which connect to other devices in the inventory.
