Creating Dashboards for System Monitoring

When you access the System Monitoring application in the Web Console, the Default dashboard displays general information. You can create your own dashboard to display specific information. For example, you can create a dashboard to monitor only system resources.

You can generate a new dashboard with the results obtained from a search and display the results as charts or tables. Create a dashboard by using one of the following methods:

  • Perform a search operation and save the search

    You can perform a search to capture the information that you want to display on the new dashboard. Use this approach if you do not have a saved search for the information you want to see on the dashboard.

  • Use an existing saved search

    You can define the dashboard details on a existing saved search. Note that you cannot associate a saved search to more than one dashboard.

Procedure

  1. From the My Applications page in the Web Console, go to Monitoring > System Monitoring.
  2. To create a new dashboard, choose one of the following approaches:
  3. If you created a new search, click the star button to save it.
  4. On the Search page, at the upper right of the page, click Actions > Save to Dashboard.
  5. In the Save to Dashboard dialog box, specify the dashboard details:
    1. Select the Save to Dashboard check box and choose how you want to present the search results on the dashboard.

      You can display the information as a chart (Graph option) or as a table.

    2. In the Application list, to categorize your dashboard, click Activity Monitoring or Resource Monitoring.

      Your dashboard will appear under the Dashboards tab in the subcategory you select.

    3. In the Dashboard box, enter a name for the dashboard.
    4. To enable client filters for your dashboard, select the Include Client Navigation check box.
    5. Click Save.
  6. To view your new dashboard, at the top of the page, click Dashboard, click a subcategory, and then select your dashboard from the list.

    The new dashboard appears. The chart or table displays the search results.

    Note: If you remove the search from the Saved Search tab, then the chart or table on the dashboard is also removed.
