  • Total number of events
  • Total number of anomalies
  • Total number of incidents
  • Mean time to resolve issues 
  • Noise reduction percentage
  • Top five impacted services by their severity, health score, and the event trend. 
  • Top five situations identified from the events, aggregated based on correlation policies or machine learning based algorithms. 

For more information, see Monitoring key performance indicators and entities


Services

Visualize the health and performance of the services in your organization in a heatmap view. From the heatmap view, you can also navigate to the impacted child services.

You can perform the following tasks while monitoring services: 

  • Hover over a service to view the situations, events, incidents, and impacted entities for a service.
  • Filter services by their severity, and use additional filters to view the impact on a specific service.
  • Switch between the tile and heatmap view.
  • View the following details for an impacted service:
    • Service health score, impacted events, service health on a timeline 
    • CI topology and service hierarchy
    • Health indicators
    • Situations
    • Root cause 
    • Service insights

Situations

On the Situations page, by default, all situations are displayed. If the same issue has impacted multiple services, such situations are grouped together under a master situation. A master situation is indicated by the Primary Situation.

You can click the Similar Situations toggle key to view a group of situations that occurred on the same service node.
