There is a Toolbar 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).
- Historic Detail (Clock icon)
In an open window, displays a list of all monitored metrics over the retention period. 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.
You can now choose different themes for your dashboard. There are several options to choose from – Default (Dark), Light, Sand, Gray, Dark Blue and Dark Green. You can also customize each Dashboard frame individually.
- Dashboard Profiles
Now you can customize Dashboard Profiles by applying dashboard layouts that you or other users have created. Users can configure both Public or Private Dashboard Profiles, based on their preferences. Each user can save multiple profiles and set one of them as their default profile that will load up every time they log on to Web ViewPoint Enterprise. In addition, users have the option to modify or delete Dashboard Profiles that they have created.
- Graphic Range
You have the option to select different time ranges from 5 mins, 15 mins, 45 mins and All data. It will apply to all line graphs that you have set up on Dashboard.
- Add a New Frame
This is used to add new frames to Dashboard. First, select a Server. Based on whether you have installed Applications/Plugins on My NonStop or previously configured Smart Metrics for that server or not, you can have up to three options to choose from:
- Server Objects, such as CPU or Disk.
- Profiles. These profiles can be configured in Smart Metrics section under Admin tab on the left panel.
- Apps, such as Shadowbase Monitor, Connex Monitor, Base24, etc.
Next, select the preferred metric that you would like to monitor on the Global Dash. Then select whether you would like a Chart, Bar, Pie or Table display (options, subject to availability).
- Cloud icon
Link to connect to Remote Analyst (AWS or on premises – Requires License), where you can see full historical detail and analytics.
