Solaris Dashboard

Use the Solaris Dashboard to analyze and manage the capacity of the Solaris infrastructure in your environment. The dashboard shows the key capacity metrics and charts of Solaris LDOMs and zones. You can use this information for capacity analysis.

The dashboard displays data for the following system types:

  • Virtual Machine - Solaris LDOM
  • Virtual Host - Solaris
  • Virtual Machine - Zone


Do not make the dashboard editable by using the Make editable option in the dashboard settings. If you want to customize the dashboard, we recommend that you create a copy of the dashboard and customize it.
