Site views

A Site represents a logical grouping of computers within Active Directory® that have reliable connectivity. Active Directory uses the site layout to create the best replication topology for the DCs in the forest. Site topology is not related to the domain hierarchy. That is, a domain can appear in many sites, and a site can contain many domains.

When you know the location of a directory problem, the Site views provide a quick way to get the metrics about the site and DCs in that site.

The following views are available to monitor the health of the sites within your Active Directory infrastructure:

Sites Environment Summary (All Sites) view

The Sites Environment Summary (All Sites) view displays a site tile for each site in your Active Directory® environment and provides summary data about the DCs and Global Catalog servers (GCs) within each site. It also displays the number of DCs and GCs in each of the alarm states (fatal, critical and warning) for each site.

A site tile displays the following information:

From the Foglight navigation panel, select Dashboards > Active Directory > Active Directory Environment.

Site Environment Summary view

The Site Environment Summary view displays a site tile for the selected site, showing data about the object types within that site and the number of objects in each of the alarm states. In addition to the site tile, this view displays details about the DCs, subnets and transports that make up this site.

From the Foglight navigation panel, select Dashboards > Active Directory > Active Directory Environment.

In addition to the site tile and current site alarms, the following embedded views are displayed in the Site Summary:

Sites Explorer Summary (All Sites) view

The Sites Explorer Summary (All Sites) view displays detailed resource metrics and information about the DCs in all of the monitored sites in your Active Directory® environment.

From the Foglight navigation panel, select Dashboards > Active Directory > Active Directory Explorer.

In addition to the current site alarms, this view is made up of the following embedded views:
