When you log in to Foglight Evolve for the first time, the Getting Started tab of the Environment Overview page appears in the display area.

This tab displays tiles based on the products that are installed.

From this tab, you can quickly perform a number of activities:

Explore Hyper-V—access the Hyper-V Environment Overview page.
Explore VMware—access the VMware Environment Overview page.
Add Monitoring—add Hyper-V or VMware agents to your environment.

You can also obtain information about the status of your license for Foglight. This status is indicated by messages displayed on the tile of the installed products. For more information on licenses, see the Administration and Configuration Guide.

In addition, the Getting Started provides several video tutorials and the Evaluation Guide which is intended for anyone who wants to perform a quick evaluation of the power and ease-of-use of Foglight.

To access the Perspective views for any of the installed vFoglight cartridges, open the navigation panel, expand the Dashboard module, and click Perspective Selector > Perspective.

The Perspective dashboard provides a summary view of the different parts of your environment. Each perspective summarizes the key information related to a particular area of interest. Each perspective contains a section on the right side that shows the total number of alarms for each severity. Most perspectives also include a detailed view that list the number of objects (VMs, Hosts, and so on) within that environment, broken down by the entity’s alarm status. If a single object has multiple alarms, each alarm is counted. For this reason, the total number of alarms frequently exceeds the total number of objects with alarms.

Each perspective contains an Explore button. Click Explore to investigate the full details displayed in the VMware Environment dashboard.

Changes to the Foglight User Interface

Foglight 6.3.0 introduces an updated user interface that improves navigation and search functions. Some legacy functions are not available in the new interface components. To access these functions, you must switch to the previous Foglight interface (refereed to as the Classic Foglight web console). When these functions are described in the sections below, a note will indicate that this step is necessary.

Refer to Opening the Foglight classic Web Console for more information.
