    Using the Juniper Infrastructure Overview Dashboard

    The Juniper Infrastructure Overview dashboard gives you an overview of the topology of the data center network and also enables you identify the top alerts for each data center network. The Juniper Infrastructure Overview dashboard comprises of three widgets—Datacenter Overview, Top Alerts, and Object Relationship. These widgets display all the data centers, underlying fabrics, host devices, and virtual machines that are part of your data center network. Each of these entities are grouped under the respective categories.

    You can perform the following tasks from the Juniper Infrastructure Overview dashboard:

    View the Data Center Connectivity

    You can view the connectivity between the various devices that form your data center, by using the Datacenter Overview widget. You can do the following:

    • Select a data center, network fabric, host device, or a virtual machine to display the connected devices that form that data center. For example. if you select a data center, vROps highlights the connected network fabrics, host devices, and virtual machines in the Datacenter Overview widget.

      In the Figure 1, you can see that the data center Bangalore-DC is connected to a network fabric nd-virt-ex4200-a which is connected to two host devices, qfd-vc51-dev-a and qfd-vc51-dev-b. The host devices qfd-vc51-dev-a and qfd-vc51-dev-b host five virtual machines between them and these are highlighted in the Virtual Machines section.

    • View devices using two different modes—Health and Risk. Use the Health and the Risk buttons to view data center devices in the respective modes (see Figure 1). These modes display device icons of different colors based on the health and risk status of a device. Table 1 describes what each device icon color indicates in each of these modes.

      Indicates that the device works fine.

      Indicates that there are no risks or threats identified as of now.

      Indicates one or more minor issues in the device that might not impact the functioning of the device–for example, memory contention.

      Indicates that the device has one or more minor risks that might not impact the functioning of the device. These include high CPU utilization, high memory utilization, high port utilization, high port latency high, or high port packet drop rate.

      Indicates an issue in the device that might impact the normal functioning of the device—for example, redundant connectivity or a disk Input/Output write latency issue.

      Indicates that the device has major risks that can impact the normal functioning of the device.

      Indicates a major issue in the device that needs to be fixed immediately—for example, the link between two devices is down.

      Indicates major risks that need immediate attention.

    View the Top Alerts for your Data Center

    You can view the top alerts for your data center in the Top Alerts widget.

    To view the alerts:

    1. Select a data center or connected device in the Datacenter Overview widget.

      vROps displays alerts for the data center, which include alerts for devices that are part of the data center, or the alerts for the selected device if you selected an individual device.

    2. From the Top Alerts widget, you can:
      • View the severity of the alert based on the color of the alert badge. Table 1 describes what each icon color indicates in the Health mode and the Risk mode.
      • Click the short description of the alert to open and view a summary of the alert and the corrective action that you must take to get rid of the alert.

        vROps opens the Alert Details page, which displays details about the alert.

        Note: While in the Alert Details page, you must click Home in the left navigation pane to navigate back to the Juniper Infrastructure Overview dashboard page.

    View Relationship Between Various Devices in the Data Center

    You can view the relationship between devices in the Object Relationship widget.

    To view relationship between devices:

    1. Select an object in the Datacenter Overview widget.

      vROps displays the connection between the selected object and the connected devices. For example, if you select a host system in the Datacenter Overview widget, vROps displays the connected network fabric and the virtual machines that are part of the host system, in the Object Relationship widget.

    2. From the Object Relationship widget, you can:
      • Toggle the Health and Risk badges to view devices based on the health or risk.
      • Click to view the list of alerts for the devices that are displayed.
