Foglight Evolve 9.2 - Getting Started Guide

Next steps

Your next steps depend on how you are using this guide and the way you want to use Foglight. Some examples are provided below.

If you read this guide prior to installing Foglight: Select the appropriate platform- and database-specific Installation and Setup Guide and follow the instructions for installing and configuring Foglight.
If you are an operator responsible for monitoring a large environment: Follow a service- or host-oriented workflow. For example, if you are responsible for ensuring the availability of your accounting application service, you can follow a service-oriented workflow that begins in the Service Operations Console. If you prefer a less abstract approach, you can follow a host-oriented workflow that begins in the Hosts dashboard. You can correlate these two approaches: the Service Operations Console displays the aggregate state of the hosts in a service and the Hosts dashboard allows you to view the services on which a host’s state has an impact. See the User Guide for details.
If you are a technical expert interested in monitoring a specific domain: Start with the documentation included with the Foglight cartridge for monitoring that domain.
If you are interested in monitoring services: You can follow a service-oriented workflow. See the User Guide for details about the drilldowns available from the Service Operations Console.
If you want to customize aspects of the Foglight browser interface: Begin by following the instructions in “Customizing Foglight” in the User Help.
If you are a Foglight administrator: See the Administration and Configuration Guide and the Command-Line Reference Guide for information about performing administrative tasks (in addition to those described above) from the Foglight browser interface and from the command line.
If you want to create custom dashboards: Review the information in “Creating a Custom Dashboard” in the Foglight User Help. You could then learn more about creating dashboards by following “Tutorial 2: Creating a Dashboard” in the Web Component Tutorial.
If you want to create custom views: Begin by following “Tutorial 4: Adding Views” in the Web Component Tutorial. After this tutorial, see the Web Component Guide and the HTML Web Component Reference pages. These resources can help you create new views using the Quest Web Component Framework technology.
