Each item lists relevant metrics and includes one or more status buttons. The status buttons roll up multiple metrics into a single status for rapid review.

You can click any metric or any status button for more details.

When you click a metric, you can review information about the metric. You can also link to the metric details and edit the alert threshold of the selected metric for the selected server.
