Global Dash – Overview
Global Dash 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 published on My NonStop such as Shadowbase Monitor.
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 or it will be red otherwise. You may set these thresholds to your personal preferences as described in Threshold section under Admin tab on the left panel.
- Top toolbar
There is one bar displayed at the top of the Global Dash. You may see the details of all the servers in the neighborhood that you have logged on to on Web ViewPoint Enterprise. The color of each Server name is based on the respective current states of their monitored metrics. Starting from left, it has the following sections/icons:
- Name(s) of the NonStop Server(s) are displayed along with the time of the last interval refresh are displayed. Time is derived from the NonStop Server(s).
- Clock icon (Historic Detail)
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. If you are logged in to a Neighborhood of Servers, it will also feature a dropdown list of Servers for which you can view the historic details.
- Show All Processes
This pops up a new window where you see all the processes on the server. Once you click on any process, you can observe the process trend and also view the PSTATE of that process.
- Add a New Frame
This is used to add new frames to the dashboard. First, select a Server. Based on whether you have installed applications such as Shadowbase Monitor for that server or not, you can choose any NonStop Server Objects, such as CPU or Disk that are displayed on a list box or choose an App Object. Select whether you would like a Chart or a Table display (if both options are available). Then you select the preferred metric that you would like to monitor on the Global Dash.
- Cloud icon
Link to connect to Remote Analyst (AWS or on premises – Requires License), where you can see full historical detail and analytics.
Customizing and Editing Frames
There are certain controls on frames that you can use to customize or edit them and make the most out of Global Dash. They are as follows:
- There are certain frames with graphical representations that can be scaled using the Scaling button on the frame. The Scaling is done in regards to the highest data point on the graph.
- Clicking on this button simply opens the frame in a new browser window.
Clicking on this displays a list of metrics for a specific object of the same server over the past hour in a new browser window. 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.
Clicking on this displays the trend for that specific metric over time.
Edit Frame Settings
This helps change any settings with that particular frame on the Global Dash.
This helps delete the specific frame from your Global Dash.
In order to position your frames or change their order, simply hover over the blank space on the title bar of the frame and drag and drop your frames in any position you like on the Global Dash.
