Dashboard Overview

What is J-Web Dashboard

The J-Web dashboard provides a unified overview of the system and network status retrieved from SRX Series Firewalls.

To use the dashboard at the top-level menu, select Dashboard. By default, the Dashboard page displays all the widget thumbnails.

Figure 1 shows an example of the Dashboard page of SRX345 Firewall.

Work with Widgets

Each widget pane acts as a separate frame. You can click + icon to add separate dashboard and name it as per your ease. You can refresh the display of the Dashboard page by clicking the refresh icon at the upper-right corner above the widget pane.

You can choose any one of the categories to view widgets on your device:

  • All Widgets—Displays all the supported widgets

  • Applications—Displays only the supported application related widgets

  • Devices—Displays only the supported device related widgets

  • Security—Displays only the supported security related widgets

  • Starting in Junos OS Release 21.4R1, on-box reports related widgets are removed to speed up the J-Web UI loading process.

  • The Threat Activity pane is not available on SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 devices.

  • For SRX Series Firewalls configured for logical systems, the Logical System Identification and Logical System Profile panes are displayed when you log in as a user logical system administrator. These are the only logical system panes available in Dashboard Preferences.

  • If the rescue configuration is not set, the set rescue configuration link directs you to the Device Administration > Configuration Management > Rescue page to set the rescue configuration.

To use a widget on the Dashboard:

  1. Drag the widgets from the palette or thumbnail container to your dashboard.

    When you add more widgets on the J-Web Dashboard, you can observe high CPU usage on the Routing Engine for a short span of time on every refresh. We recommend that you use four widgets for lower CPU consumption.

  2. Mouse over the top of each widget to minimize, refresh, and close by using the respective icons.


    The dashlet data is refreshed every minute by default. You cannot manually configure the refresh interval of the dashlet. If the data is not aged in the cache, data loads from the cache during the dashlet refresh. If the data is aged, it is retrieved from the device during the next refresh interval cycle.

Table 1 provides the dashboard widgets options based on the selected device.
