Selecting an Instance to Monitor

Because the Databases dashboard displays by default all of the currently monitored databases, it is advisable to customize the dashboard’s view to display only the relevant instances, and then preview such instances to decide which to monitor.

Filter by database type — if multiple database types are being monitored, click the database type tile that represents the requested type (in this case, Oracle).
Filter by severity — use the status indicators to display only instances of a specific database type that share a specific health state severity. For further details, see Filtering the Display by Severity .
Create user-defined groups — use the Databases area to create groups that contain only the databases that need to be monitored for a specific need. For further details, see Creating User-defined Database Groups .
Assign Instances to specific users — When accessing a Database dashboard, non-administrative users will view only instances which have been assigned to them. For details, see Assigning Instances to Users .

Click Home Page on the cue card to launch a full-screen view of the requested instance.

The Status Indicators section can be used for filtering the Databases Group table to display only instances that meet a criterion set in this section.

Components Shared by All Foglight for Oracle Screens

The tables’ Customizer button and the In-context action buttons are common to all Foglight for Oracle screens.

The Customizer button — use this button, which is found on the upper right corner of each table, to create a custom filter for the table. The filter is created by clicking Customizer and specifying the criteria that the various values should meet in order to be displayed in the table (having a specific name, exceeding a certain size, and so on). For detailed instructions and examples, see Foglight User Guide > Working with Dashboards > Working with Tables.

In-context actions buttons — found on the upper right corner of all screens:

Refresh — clicking this button retrieves the data acquired using the most recent sampling.
Agent Settings — when using panels whose configuration is set using the Databases Administration dashboard, clicking this button opens the relevant screen in the Databases Administration dashboard (for example, clicking this button from within the Databases > Locks panel opens the Locks screen).
Useful links — used for carrying out further investigation using the following external sources:
Release Notes — provides a link to the Foglight for Oracle Release Notes.
Deployment Guide — provides a link to the Foglight for Databases Deployment Guide.
Topology Mapping — opens the Oracle_Topology_Mapping.csv file.
