Dashboards provide consolidated and customized views of your environment. You create a dashboard by selecting dashlet templates from the dashlet library and configuring them for your specific requirements. Each configured dashlet provides access to a specific type of data and presents it in a graphical format. When a dashlet in the dashboard identifies a problem, the dashlet also acts as an access point to investigate and troubleshoot the root cause.
The ability to share dashboards enables members of work groups to create and maintain a single dashboard that they can all use. If you find a shared dashboard that you like, you can copy it and use it as is or modify it as necessary.
A dashlet displays a single graphic about a specific application or server. As you build your dashboard, you specify a dashlet template, and then configure it to the values for your systems. You can specify different types of dashlets or the same dashlet many times.
You can use the following dashlet templates to create dashboards that provide information about your infrastructure and services.
