Service Operations Console

This section provides an introduction to the Services Operations Console dashboard. For details about this dashboard and services, see “Monitoring your services” in the Foglight User Guide.

The Service Operations Console is the best way to monitor a selected set of services. This dashboard allows you to focus on monitoring a specific group of services by selecting those services and viewing their dependencies. In addition, you can select tiers that are relevant to you and display service breakdowns based on these tiers.

Use this dashboard to view details about the services you want to monitor, such as the state of your services and information about their contents. You can also drill down on this dashboard to see more information about your services. For example, you can drill down on a tier to investigate the state of the monitored components within that tier and see the hosts that are related to it.

1. Select services and tiers to monitor link: Opens the Select services and tiers to monitor dialog box, which you use to select the services and tiers that interest you. Selecting services and tiers causes them to appear in the Service Operations Console dashboard. See the User Guide for details.

2. Name column: Lists the services that you select. See the User Guide for more information about services.

3. Service Level Compliance column: Shows the service level for each service. Foglight automatically creates a service level for each service. The level of compliance is determined by the component in the most severe state. See the User Guide for more information.

TIP: Click an icon in this column to display a popup with more information about the Service Level Agreement for the service. Follow the Explore > Service Level Agreement(s) link in the popup to navigate to the Service Levels dashboard populated with information specific to that service. See the online help for the Service Levels dashboard for details.

4. Alarms column: Shows the number of alarms for the services that you select. Clicking one of the icons in this column causes an Outstanding Alarm(s) view to appear with a list of alarms specific to that service.

5. Tier columns: Show performance information for the tiers you chose to display. Tiers help you structure services in a way that represents your monitored environment. By default, Foglight organizes data into tiers such as User, Web, Application, Database, Host, and Agent. See the User Guide for more information. The icons in each column show the aggregate state of that tier for that category or service. A tier’s state is determined by the most severe state of its monitored components, including related hosts.

6. Explore column: Opens the Service Details view for the selected service. The Service Details view provides a breakdown of monitored components, related agents, and their associated outstanding alarms. See the User Guide for details.

7. Service Operations Console tabs: Display details for the selected category or service, such as its contents and dependencies. See the User Guide for details.
