Databases Dashboard

The Databases dashboard contains the following elements:

Database Alarms

The Database Alarms pane shows the numbers alarms, by the severity level (Fatal, Critical, Warning, Normal, and Unknown). Use it as a starting point to quickly identify the sources of problems within your database infrastructure.

Database Environment Tiles

The Database Environment tiles display a high-level overview of your database environment. There is a tile for each type of database currently monitored by Foglight: All Instances, SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, and DB2. Each tile shows how many of the corresponding object instances there are in your database infrastructure, and the count of objects of that type in each of the alarm states (Normal, Warning, Critical, Fatal).

Clicking the object type icon, the object type name, or the object count, shows summary information for that object type in the Databases Instances View. Clicking an alarm state (for example, Warning) on a tile displays summary information in the Databases Instances View for the objects in the selected state.

Alarm counts. The total counts of alarms associated with the database instances, broken down by alarm types (Normal, Warning, Critical, Fatal).
Database instance count. The number of the DB2 database instances in your environment.

Drill down on:

Alarm counts. Lists the database instances against these alarms generated in the Databases Instances View.
Database instance count. Displays all DB2 database instances in the Databases Instances View.
