The dashlet library comprises dashlet templates that enable you to build custom dashboards. Some of the dashlet templates are specific to the data that they display, while others enable you to show more general content. When building your dashboards, you can select any combination of dashlet templates; however, if you select a dashlet template that shows specific data, that data must be available in TrueSight Operations Management at the time you configure the dashlet.

This topic provides the following information about the available dashlets:

Dashlet configuration

When you select a dashlet template from the Add Dashlet page, the properties for the selected dashlet appear in a drawer-like section that slides out from the bottom of the dashboard. You can create a unique, descriptive title for each dashlet.

 

Available dashlet templates

The following table lists the dashlet templates that compose the dashlet library. The dashlet description includes the properties that you must configure for each dashlet. 

The dashlet templates listed depend on the components that you have registered with the Presentation Server.

Best practice

Because you can use the same template to create multiple dashlets, you can also use the same title; however, BMC recommends that you use a unique title for each dashlet to avoid confusion.


Oops, it seems that you need to place a table or a macro generating a table within the Table Filter macro.

The table is being loaded. Please wait for a bit ...

Application Client Breakdown

Displays the average application end-to-end time or number of hits, by browser type or platform. You select one or all applications with App Visibility end-user monitoring and the specific metrics you want to display. You can see a breakdown of how end users are accessing your application and the average response time for each client.

Application MonitoringApp Visibility Manager
Application Server Health

Displays key performance indicators for application servers that are monitored by App Visibility Manager. You select an application server on which an App Visibility agent for Java or .NET is installed. You can see the monitored applications that use this server, and graphs of the following metrics:

  • Number of hits
  • Percentage of latency violations and errors
  • Percentage of server CPU usage
  • Amount of server memory usage
Application MonitoringApp Visibility Manager
Application View

Monitors the health and performance of live traffic and synthetic executions of an application. You select an application monitored by App Visibility Manager and you can see the current status of each tier in the application. Select a tier to drill down to relevant data in the Application View.

Application Monitoring

 

App Visibility Manager
Applications

Displays the applications that you select. You can select the applications from a list of applications, or select the applications based on the criteria such as severity and importance. For information about viewing applications, see Investigating application issues with the Application View. For information about configuring applications, see Setting up applications for monitoring.

Device Count by Severity

Displays the health of devices based on the severity counts in a chart where the device count is plotted against the severity. The chart displays both the number and percentage (%) of devices under that severity type. Select the severity chart to open the Devices view page.

Infrastructure Monitoring Infrastructure Management Server  
Device Performance

Displays the performance metrics of a single device based on selected parameters. For each device, you can view a maximum of four parameters. Each parameter is displayed in a separate chart. In addition, a Device Health bar is displayed. Select the parameters data to open the Monitor Details page and select the health bar to open the Device Details page.

Infrastructure MonitoringInfrastructure Management Server
Event Count

Displays the count of events for the selected applications, groups, or devices based on the specified status, severity, and advanced filtering options. The dashlet displays the count of events in a stacked, or Column chart, or in a segmented, or Bar chart. Select the severity chart to open the Events view page.

Infrastructure Monitoring Infrastructure Management Server  
Event List

Displays a list of events based on selected filter criteria. Users can view the list of events assigned to themselves, or to other users, based on the filter criteria. The dashlet displays the list of events with severity, importance, date and time stamp, message, and status.

The user can configure the dashlet to view the list of dashlets assigned to oneself or to other users. Click any view event navigates to the Event Details page.

Infrastructure Monitoring Infrastructure Management Server
Impacted Users or Executions

Displays the number of impacted real users compared to the total number of users, or the number of impacted synthetic executions compared to the total number of executions, over the last 24 hours.

To display impacted real users, you select an application with App Visibility real-user monitoring .

To display impacted synthetic executions, you select an application with synthetic transaction monitoring enabled.

Application MonitoringApp Visibility Manager
IT Data Analytics

Displays an IT Data Analytics dashlet with statistical data to help users perform a fast root cause analysis and resolve applications-related problems. For information about the IT Data Analytics Saved Search dashlet, see managing dashboards in the BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics documentation.
