The Heat Map answers the question: Which servers (connections) require the most urgent attention? The Heat Map is a visual display that organizes connections based on the comparative number and severity of their alarms.
The Heat Map is an accurate reflection of the current environment. It refreshes itself automatically when connections are added and removed and when there is a change in the alarm status of the connections. Connections are removed from the heat map when monitoring is disabled and while they are in planned outage.
Click Monitor | Heat Map from the Spotlight ribbon to show all monitored connections in the Heat Map.
The Heat Map can show a custom view (Custom views) of monitored connections. Click on a custom view or connection type from the Connections pane (Monitored connections) then click Heat Map from the display pane.
Connections with the most alarms raised against them are given the most surface area on the heat map.
