Understanding GlobalView

GlobalView is a dashboard view providing a holistic, or “global,” picture of all of the DR Series systems that you have added to it. By using GlobalView, you can easily monitor and manage all of the DR Series systems in your enterprise through one view. For example, as an administrator in a headquarters office, you could use GlobalView on your DR Series system to monitor via a single page all of the DR Series systems you have in the different branch offices that replicate to the headquarters office. The GlobalView also provides easy navigation to any DR Series systems in the view.

The following list describes important tips and considerations for using GlobalView:

Prerequisites for GlobalView

The GlobalView feature is available on all DR Series systems that have version 3.0.0.1 (or later) software installed. The system to which you are currently logged in is automatically included by default in the GlobalView page; however, any other systems must be explicitly added. For details, see Adding a DR Series System to Global View.

The following list descries the prerequisites that must be met so that you can add and view additional DR Series systems in the GlobalView page.

Viewing and using the GlobalView page

The GlobalView page in the DR Series system GUI displays a convenient view of the operating statistics for all of the DR Series system appliances that you have added. On this page, you can monitor the status of and easily navigate to the DR Series systems that you have added to the GlobalView. Using GlobalView makes it easy to navigate to a different system in your enterprise without having to log out and log on by using new browser sessions.

To view and use the GlobalView page, follow these steps.

1.
To view the GlobalView page, in the left navigation menu, click GlobalView. The GlobalView page is displayed, showing a GlobalView Summary and a list of appliances that have been added to GlobalView. The information on this page refreshes every 30 seconds.

The following table describes the information that is displayed in the GlobalView Summary.
