Welcome to the Foglight User Guide. This guide helps you monitor your enterprise from a variety of perspectives using the Alarms, Domains, Service Operations Console, and Hosts dashboards. It presents workflows for drilling down and investigating problems in your monitored environment using these dashboards.
This guide is intended for users who have been assigned the Operator or Advanced Operator role and who need to perform tasks such as monitoring their environment, working with alarms, and creating reports.
The User Guide is organized as follows:
— this section provides instructions for logging in to Foglight and describes the Welcome page you see when you log in with the General Access role. It also introduces you to navigating the Foglight browser interface and discusses best practices for navigation.
— this section discusses using the Alarms dashboard to view the state of alarms across your monitored environment and take immediate action on them.
— this section discusses using the Domains dashboard to obtain a high-level view of the state of your monitored domains and investigate problems in a particular domain.
— this section discusses using the Service Operations Console to monitor your critical services and tailor the way Foglight presents information about monitored components.
— this section describes how to monitor your hosts using workflows that start in the Hosts dashboard to view the performance of all monitored hosts or drill down on a single host.
— this section introduces the Reports dashboard, your starting point for working with reports. Consult this section for information about running reports, building custom report templates, viewing generated reports, scheduling reports, and managing reports.
