Understanding the Dashboard
When you log in to the Connectivity Services Director interface, the first page that is displayed is the Dashboard page. Service Dashboard and Monitoring provide a proactive account of the services and devices health status and working efficiency of devices in a bird's eye, comprehensive, and intuitive format at the network level and service levels. A single pane of glass (SPOG) view helps the operator to view various alarms and quickly identify and isolate issues. The dashboard and monitoring feature aggregates and correlates data from different sources such as SNMP and system event logs. The defined threshold values enable operators to specify monitoring criteria critical for service operations and administration. The performance management view also highlights the top or first three non-confirming devices and provides a historical context with time graph and additional data from the logging system. The Dashboard page contains several monitors or frames.
The Dashboard is a customizeable page to view information about the network, and is the default page that opens when you log in. You select monitoring widgets to display on the Dashboard that show various information about the network. The Dashboard is a view. To open a different view, select a view from the Views list in the Connectivity Services Director banner.
