The TrueSight console provides a single pane of glass. You can view all the applications those created manually and those that are automatically discovered in your network, and you can sort by application importance or severity. You can select a single application and drill down to investigate the source of an application issue.
The availability of some features depends on the data providers in your environment, for example:
To view all applications, in the TrueSight console, click Monitoring > Applications. In parentheses next to the Applications page title is the number of monitored applications.
The color of an application indicates the current severity of events on an application. The application severity is calculated as follows:
Each event has a severity level associated with it. The severity level in combination with the importance indicates the seriousness of the event and the urgency of the need to take action. For example, a high severity level for an event with low importance is no cause for alarm, but a high severity level for an event with high importance indicates an urgent need for action. Even if the severity of one device or monitor instance in an application is critical (denoted by the color red), the severity of the entire application becomes red. The following figure is a snapshot of the Applications page based on severity.
In the following figure, one application is red with a corresponding icon , indicating that the severity is critical. All the other applications are green with a corresponding icon , indicating that no events or transaction problems are detected and the severity is OK.
You can click the name of any application to view details of that application. You can Viewing an application.view the application model. For more information, see
Example of the Applications page
You can sort and filter applications by severity or importance.
The severity of an application is determined by the event with highest severity. For applications that are automatically generated, the Major and Warning severity levels are not applicable.
The severity is indicated by different colors and icons:
|At least one monitored metric exceeded the defined
|Major (dark orange)
|At least one monitored metric exceeds the defined Major threshold.
|Minor (light orange)
|At least one monitored metric exceeded the defined Minor
|At least one monitored metric exceeded the defined Warning threshold.
|Information about the application
No monitored metrics exceed the defined thresholds.
Importance is sorted by high, medium, and low. For applications created in the TrueSight console, you can set the importance when you create an application. For applications discovered by App Visibility, the importance is set as medium by default. You can change the importance for either kind of application, later.
When business services have been defined in BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management, they are automatically displayed in your list of monitored applications. A business service is designated by the icon.
Example of a business service in the Applications page
To cross-launch from the business service to the Infrastructure Management operator console, click the business service name.
