Advanced Dashboard Topics

Data Sources:

Alarm: Shows the highest severity alarm

Dashboard For drill-down, shows the highest severity alarm in the linked dashboard

Metric: Displays metrics from monitored systems

Probe: To retrieve data directly from a probe

SLO/SLA: For displaying SLO/SLA compliance percent

SQL: Allows data to be retreived directly from any database

QOS:

Parameters:

Variables allow dashboards to be parameterized so that a copied dashboard can be easily re-used in another, similar situation.

For example, a dashboard created for one department can be repurposed for use in a similar situation without recreating the dashboard. The dashboard designer need only change the values assigned to parameters to change the context of the dashboard.
