Dashboard is where you can dynamically construct a window showing metrics of your choice from one or more NonStop Servers.  The metrics may be from NonStop subsystems/Objects such as CPU or Disk, as well as metrics derived from Applications (e.g. Gravic Shadowbase™).

A Dashboard has the following components:

  • Globe on the left panel – Click to access the Dashboard. Globe changes color to green if all monitored components of all Servers are below previous set thresholds, yellow if any of such metrics are at warning threshold but below the major threshold.  Globe will be red otherwise.  You may set these thresholds to your personal preferences as described in Threshold section of Admin.
  • Top toolbar – There is one bar displayed for each NonStop Server being monitored. You may stack the bars and click the arrow on the right of the bar to open or close and see the details on that Server. As stated earlier, the color of the bar is based on the current state of monitored metrics.  Starting from left, it has the following sections/icons:
    • Name of the NonStop Server is displayed name and the time of the last interval refresh is displayed. Time is derived from the NonStop Server.
    • Clock icon – In an open window, displays a list of all monitored metrics over the past hour. Where applicable, numbers have links to other windows and details.  Given the amount of the data to be displayed, this Window takes longer than usual to display in full.
    • Settings icon – This is where you select which metrics to be displayed and how. This is described below and in more detail.
    • Cloud icon – Link to connect to Remote Analyst (AWS or on premises – Requires License), where you can see full historical detail and analytics.
    • Down/Up arrow. To close/open the panels & details.
  • Panels of metrics – Metrics are displayed in graphic format. Each set is contained within a Panel which may hold one or two sets of graphs. These are displayed in rows.  You choose how many rows, how many panels per row, and what each panel should contain.  This is described in more detail in Selecting metrics.
