Finding the Foglight APM dashboards

To find the Foglight APM dashboards, in the Foglight navigation panel, under Dashboards, expand APM. Top-level APM dashboards enable you to view aggregated data by sequence, transaction, or geographical perspective. The Search dashboards enable you to search the Archiver database by hits, sessions, or sequences.
The APM menu contains the following menu items:
Geographical Perspective — assess the performance of your web sites and applications by city, country, or region.
Search — search the Archiver databases for details about hits, sequences, and sessions.
Sequence Explorer — assess the performance of important workflows in your web applications.
Transactions — monitor real user experiences with or without the other transactional data captured by Foglight.
Web Site and Endpoints — assess the performance of your web sites and endpoints.
