Dashboard Widgets

One of the major strengths of Panopta's live dashboards is the catalog of widgets to pick from. Each widget provides a different suite of options for formatting, data selection and data aggregation. Read about each widget below. Looking for a general overview on live dashboards? Read here

Active Incident Counter

This widget will display the count of all active incidents in your account, based on the configuration of the widget. Filter which incidents are included based on specific infrastructure, specific metric types and the relevant severity. The background color of the widget will be dictated by the severity type of the incidents (red for critical and orange for warning)

Active Incident Details

This widget provides the details of each active incident included in your filter and features configurable columns for different data points, so that you can highlight what's most important. The ordering of the columns can be set along with which column is used for sorting (the carrot). Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific infrastructure and metric failures.

Resolved Incident Counter

This widget will display the count of recently resolved incidents in your account, based on the configuration of the widget. Filter which incidents are included based on specific infrastructure, specific metric types and the relevant severity along with the time range of the query.

Resolved Incident Details

This widget provides the details of recently resolved incident included in your filter and features configurable columns for different data points, so that you can highlight what's most important. The ordering of the columns can be set along with which column is used for sorting (the carrot). Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific infrastructure and metric failures.

Bar Chart

The Bar Chart allows you to visually represent metric levels across multiple instances. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options. Select whether to show live metric values or aggregates over a certain period of time. In addition, you have options for controlling the X-axis legend and the orientation of the chart.

Gauge

The gauge widget allows you to visually represent a specific metric level for a single instance where there is a logical upper bound. For metrics based on percentages, the upper bound will automatically set to 100%. For non percentage based metrics, you will need to enter a value. If the metric level has breached a configured threshold, the gauge color will change from green to either red/orange, based on the severity.

Single Metric

Use this widget to highlight a specific metric value. Choose from different aggregate functions, like Average, Min, or Max over the course of a specific time range or choose to show the live value.

Aggregated Metric

Use this widget to combine multiple metric values of the same type into an aggregate value. Choose from different aggregate functions, like Average, Min or Max over the course of a specific time range. The example above shows avg HTTP response time across multiple web servers.

HTML Block

The HTML block widget enables you to create custom widgets using HTML, CSS and Javascript. Use this widget to present dynamic information from an external source (rss feed or API) or use it for static display purposes to create custom headers and images.

Line Graph

Use the line graph to visually represent a time series based trend of metrics. Metrics can be for a single instance or spread across multiple instances. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options.

Select the time-range for the trendline and optional lines for comparison to the same time yesterday, last week or last month. In addition, you have options for controlling the X-axis legend formatting and other graph features, like cross hairs and graph points.

Server Summary Table

The server summary table is used for showing current status and historical availability for a group of servers. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options. In addition, 9 other columns are available to add, which provide more categorization and availability statistics for each server.

Metric Summary Table

The metric summary table is used for showing current and aggregate metric values in a tabular form. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options. In addition, pick from 19 configurable columns which you can add to the summary table to display availability/SLA, min, max, avg values. Tune the specific order of the columns as well as the sorting of rows.

Metric Rollup

The metric rollup table is used for showing current status and historical availability for multiple metrics across different instances in one consolidated row. You can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using tagging. In addition, optionally enable/disable several columns which show availability statistics in aggregate.

Server Heatmap

The server heatmap is used for visualizing availability of individual servers. Optionally set which metrics to take into account for the servers availability or leave it blank for all. Cells will remain green if the current status is healthy, otherwise red or orange depending on the severity of an active incident for that server. Hovering over the cell will provide details on that instance. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances using a variety of filtering options.

Metric Heatmap

Use the metric heatmap for quick visual indicators on the current health of checks and metrics. Each cell represents a specific metric and cells will remain green if the current status is healthy, otherwise red or orange depending on the severity of an active incident for that metric. Hovering over the cell will provide details on that metric and instance. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options.

Server Health Scorecard

The server scorecard is a compact way of seeing the typical resource utilization metrics for a server row by row for a quick glance on server health. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific infrastructure using a number of filters.

Stoplight

The stoplight widget is a clear visual indicator of the current availability of a specific service or metric. This is commonly used to display whether a critical service is up or down.

Up/Down

The up/down widget is a clear visual indicator of the current availability of a specific service or metric. This is commonly used to display whether a critical service is up or down. The last outage/incident involving this check/metric will be displayed below the metric label.
