Enabling the Operation Dashboard

To help you get started with log monitoring, Commvault provides the predefined Operation Dashboard. The Operation Dashboard displays widgets that contain charts and depict data from the search options set in the System Created Policy configured for the dashboard. The following widgets are displayed on a single page so that you can visualize your data:

Job Statistics Job failure - Daily Job with errors - Weekly_Days Job retries on specified days
Job success on specified days Job failure - Weekly Job with errors - Monthly Job retries - Daily
Job success - Daily Job failure - Weekly_Days Job killed on specific days Job retries - Weekly
Job success - Weekly Job failure - Monthly Job killed - Daily Job retries - Weekly_Days
Job success - Weekly_Days Job with errors on specified days Job killed - Weekly Job retries - Monthly
Job success - Monthly Job with errors - Daily Job killed - Weekly_Days  
Job failure on specified days Job with errors - Weekly Job killed - Monthly  

Note: The Operation Dashboard displays results only from the System Created Policy and the Job Manager log files.
