Out-of-the-box Service Dashboard
The Service Dashboard contains charts and reports that allows users to monitor health of specific Business services.
The prerequisites for enabling the Service Dashboard are :
- The business services must be defined in BMC Atrium CMDB
- Services listed in the Filters section are the same as the ones listed in the Services field on a ticket request form.
Outage data is retrieved from BMC Asset Management, so if you have integrated other applications for managing outages, the data must be synced with BMC Asset Management to view it on the Service Dashboard report.
If you create outages using BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management (BPPM), these outages are automatically reflected in the BMC Asset Management application, and will therefore, be displayed in the charts and reports displayed on this dashboard.
The Service Dashboard provides the following filters for refining the reports and charts data:
|Date filter||Allows you to define the time period for which you want to view the data. This filters is applicable for the trend charts on the dashboard.|
|Business Service filter||Allows you to select the service for which you want to see the data. This filter is applicable to all reports and charts on the dashboard.|
The Service Dashboard includes the following reports:
