You can accomplish all of your application monitoring, infrastructure management, and synthetic transaction monitoring activities from the TrueSight console. This topic covers the following information, which describes how to access the console, standard conventions used throughout the product, and an overview of how you can navigate the user interface and access other applications to complete your activities.
The navigation pane provides access to the available options in the TrueSight console. As you reduce the size of the browser or when you display the console on a mobile, the navigation disappears. You can access it at any time from the navigation menu. The following image shows all of the options available on the console, but only administrators can access every option.
The navigation pane list depends on the components registered with the Presentation Server.
Regardless of your current task, the header portion of the user interface provides the common information identified in the following illustration.
1 – Navigation menu that enables you to show or hide the navigation pane
As you decrease the size of the console, the navigation pane disappears from view. Use this accordion-like option to show the navigation pane.
2 – Time of the host server
3 – User role and user name of the logged on user
4 – Action menu that displays User Preferences, Help, About, and Log Out links
Action menus appear on every page of the product and provide context-sensitive menus that enable you to configure and interact with the product.
5 – Help links that provide context sensitive user assistance.
Many features are accessible to all users of the product, but just as many of them are restricted to users with specific roles. The following diagram provides an overview of the basic flow of the product. As you can see from the diagram, many of the user features require configuration by someone logged on with some level of administrative access. Following configuration of the product, you can begin creating consolidated views of your environment with dashboards. For more information about permissions, see Role-based access.
