1 Overview

Dashboards are the primary way of viewing the metrics and events Veloopti has collected from your IT Infrastructure. Dashboards are composed of multiple elements:

  • Graphs
  • Event table
  • Filters panel

The Dashboard page is found by selecting the Dashboards menu item.

2 Graphs

A Graph is a graphical representation of data, in which "the data is represented by symbols, such as bars in a bar chart, lines in a line chart, or slices in a pie chart". Veloopti can store large amounts of data and displaying them in a graph is the way that it is easy for you to interpret the data with a glance. Clicking on the label at the bottom of a graph will hide or reveal the line of metrics

Line Graph

2.1 Event numbers on graphs

Events that occur for a metric are noted with the number Dashboard event number.png occurring.

3 Event table

An Event is a detectable or discernible occurrence that has significance for the management of the IT Infrastructure. The event table contains Events that are related to the graphs.
