Foglight for Exchange rules Running diagnostic tests Managing Exchange metrics

Action panel

The action panel, at the right of the browser interface, operates like a drawer and is closed by default. To open the action panel, click the arrow to the far right of the Foglight browser interface. Click the arrow again to close the action panel.

The action panel lists the actions and tasks you can perform within the currently displayed dashboard. It also contains the views and data that you can add to a dashboard or report, and provides access to the online help files.

Drill down actions

Use the graphical and text links in views to drill down to additional details that may assist you in diagnosing problems. Depending on the link, you drill down to a different dashboard or smaller view called a popup that appears over the dashboard you are currently viewing.

You can drill down from many different parts of a view, including names of monitored components (such as Exchange servers or Exchange roles), the view in Explorer links in a dashboard, and items like charts, tables, cylinders and icons.

For example, in the Exchange Alarms dashboard, click on a server name. This displays a dialog allowing you to select either the Explorer or the Quick View. Select the Quick View link to display the selected server’s summary information on the Exchange Environment dashboard.

Breadcrumb trail

As you drill down into more detailed views within a dashboard, the names of the previous views are displayed in a breadcrumb trail at the top of the current dashboard. In addition to providing you with context, this breadcrumb trail displays the name of the current view and provides a simple mechanism for returning to any of its parent levels.

The following breadcrumb trail was created while drilling down from the Exchange Environment dashboard into the Rule Management dashboard. Each item within the breadcrumb trail is a link to a previously viewed parent level.

Time range

By default, Foglight for Exchange displays metrics, alerts and messages that have occurred within the last four hours. This time range is configurable using the Time Range popup located in the upper right corner of the browser interface.

Figure 3. Time range

Using the Time Range popup, you can select from predefined time ranges or you can specify a custom range using either the slide time bar or calendar precision controls to specify a date and time. When you modify the time range for a dashboard or view, it adjusts the range for all of the views contained within and drilldowns accessed from that dashboard or view. It does not adjust the time range for any parent views.

For more information about modifying the time range, see the Foglight User Help.
