Monitor Your Network Using the Dashboard View

Dashboard View is a customizeable page that displays 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.

You can add widgets to the Dashboard:

  1. To add a widget to the Dashboard:
    1. Select Add Widgets. Thumbnails of the available widgets appear.
    2. To add a widget to the Dashboard, mouse over the widget’s thumbnail, then click the Add button that appears on the widget.
    3. When you are finished adding widgets, click Done. The new widgets appear on the Dashboard.

Table 1 lists the dashboard widgets that are currently available in Network Director and their purpose. With each release, Juniper Networks adds new widgets to assist you to monitor your network more efficiently. See the Network Director release notes and documentation to know about new or modified dashboard widgets.

Purpose

Alarms widget

The Alarms widget provides summary and detailed information about network alarms.

The summary view of the Alarms widget displays summary information about network alarms and their location. The number of active alarms of each severity is shown in colored circles on the left side of the widget. The distribution of alarms by site is shown on a map. The alarms count for each site is shown as a pie chart. The color of each pie chart segment indicates severity level. The colored circles to the left of the map also serve as the legend for the color coding. Mouse over a pie chart to see more information about the alarms for that site.

For more information, see Alarms Widget.

Config Deployment Jobs Status widget

The Config Deployment Jobs Status widget provides summary and detailed information about the status of configuration deployment jobs.

The information appears in a table. The vertical axis lists the job statuses. The horizontal axis shows the times when job status data was collected.

For more information, see Config Deployment Jobs Status Widget.

Config Deployment Jobs Status widget

The Device & Port Latency widget provides a graphical view of latency on devices. The heat map represents each device as a color-coded box. The color coding indicates the level of latency on a device. Cooler colors (for example, green) indicate lower latency, while hotter colors (for example, red) indicate higher latency.

The Device & Port Latency widget can show information only for devices that support Cloud Analytics Engine and that have the high-frequency traffic statistics feature enabled in Network Director.

For more information, see Device & Port Latency Widget.

Device & Port Utilization widget

The Device & Port Utilization Heatmap widget provides a graphical view of device port utilization percentage. The heat map represents each device as a color-coded box. The color coding indicates the overall level of port utilization on a device. Cooler colors (for example, green) indicate lower port utilization , while hotter colors (for example, red) indicate higher port utilization.

For more information, see Device & Port Utilization Widget.

Equipment By Type widget

The Equipment By Type widget provides summary and detailed information about the types of devices Network Director is managing.

The diagram represents the managed devices as a set of nested rings. The circle in the center of the diagram shows information about the ring segments when you mouse over them. The inner ring divides the devices into segments that represent wired and wireless device types. The outer ring divides each of those types into more specific device-type segments. Mouse over any diagram segment to see the device type and number of those devices that it represents in the center circle.

For more information, see Equipment By Type Widget.

Port Status - Physical widget

The Port Status - Physical widget provides summary and detailed information about the status of physical ports on managed devices.

For more information, see Port Status - Physical Widget.

Recent Flow Analysis widget

The Recent Flow Analysis widget enables you to view the results of all analyses of application flows that have been initiated by Network Director in your network. It also enables you simulate and analyze a flow between virtual machines (VMs) and between bare-metal servers (BMSs) to determine the best placement for a new application in your data center.

For more information, see Recent Flow Analysis Widget.

Top Talker - Wired Devices widget

The Top Talker - Wired Devices widget provides summary and detailed information about the hosts that are using the most bandwidth. Hosts are endpoints that are directly connected to access ports of wired switches.

For more information, see Top Talker - Wired Devices Widget.

Top Virtual Machines by Bandwidth widget

The Top Virtual Machines by Bandwidth widget displays a bar chart of the virtual machines that are using the most bandwidth. Each horizontal bar represents a virtual machine. The horizontal axis shows the bandwidth utilization of the virtual machines in kilobits per second. You can mouse over a bar to see more information about that virtual machine.

Top vNetwork Hosts by Bandwidth widget

The Top vNetwork Hosts by Bandwidth widget displays a bar chart of the virtual hosts that are using the most bandwidth. Each horizontal bar represents a virtual host. The horizontal axis shows the percentage of bandwidth utilization. Mouse over a bar to see more information about that host.

Virtual Machines & Bare Metal Servers widget

The Virtual Machines & Bare Metal Servers widget provides information about the application flows on virtual machines (VMs) and bare-metal servers (BMSs) in your data center. Use the widget to start flow analysis on selected active flows on a specific VM or a BMS and to view the analysis results. You can also use this widget to place a critical VM or BMS on a watchlist. Network Director automatically initiates analysis on all flows on that VM or BMS.

For more information, see Virtual Machines & Bare Metal Servers Widget.

Top Overlay Networks widget

The Top Overlay Networks widget displays a summary of the VXLANs in your network in a table.

For more information, see Top Overlay Networks Widget.
