View reference

Foglight displays monitoring data in views that group, format, and display data. The main types are described below.

Dashboards are top-level views that contain lower-level views. The dashboards supplied with Foglight, as well as those created by users, are accessible from the navigation panel.

Lower-level views in Foglight can be added to dashboards or can be accessed by drilling down from a dashboard. They receive and display data directly from the Management Server or from other views. Some views filter or select data that appears in other views in the same dashboard. Some are tree views with expandable nodes for selecting servers, applications, or data.

Foglight Net Monitor ships with several dashboards that allow you to monitor and configure your monitored environment. Each of these dashboards contains a number of views. This section describes these views in more detail. For more information about the available dashboards, see Managing monitored network devices and Investigating the performance of network devices.
