Foglight for Integrations 5.9.4 - User and Reference Guide

Using Foglight for Integrations Reference

Views

Foglight displays monitoring data in views that group, format, and display data. The following topics describe the main types of views.

Dashboards are top-level views that do not receive data from other views. Dashboards usually contain several lower-level views. The dashboards supplied with Foglight, and dashboards that users create, are available in 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.

CI List View

The CI List view allows you to quickly access detailed information on the Configuration Items that have been fed into Foglight from third-party systems. In addition, from this view you can add a configuration item to a service.

This view is located in the navigation panel of the Foglight user interface, under the Integration dashboard.
