Monitoring infrastructure performance from dashboards on the TrueSight console

Dashboards provide consolidated and customized views of your environment. You create a dashboard on the TrueSight console by selecting dashlet templates from the dashlet library and configuring them for your specific requirements. Each configured dashlet provides access to a specific type of data and presents it in a graphical format. When a dashlet in the dashboard identifies a problem, the dashlet also acts as an access point to investigate and troubleshoot the root cause. 

The ability to share dashboards enables members of work groups to create and maintain a single dashboard that they can all use. If you find a shared dashboard that you like, you can copy it and use it as is or modify it as necessary.

Dashlet templates

A dashlet displays a single graphic about a specific application or server. As you build your dashboard, you specify a dashlet template, and then configure it to the values for your systems. You can specify different types of dashlets or the same dashlet many times. 

Example

Suppose you want to show the top five and bottom five processes for four servers. As you create your dashboard, you would use the Top Bottom dashlet, and configure it twice for each server. After you finish, your dashboard contains one row with four columns–each column containing two dashlets, similar to the following illustration:

This example provides a very simple use case, but you can create dashboards to be as simple or complex as necessary.
