The TrueSight console, which is hosted on the TrueSight Presentation Server, is the primary user interface for capacity views. From this console, you can view all out-of-the-box infrastructure views and also build custom views that are tailored to different organizational roles, or to specific services and applications.

 

To access the TrueSight console

  1. From a supported browser, enter the IP address or host name of the TrueSight Presentation server as shown in this table. The following table indicates the format to access the TrueSight console using example IP addresses for both Windows and Linux environments:

Overview of the TrueSight console

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.
