Dashboards provide an “at a glance” way to view the status and health of your network and applications. Available dashboards include:

  • Overview—The Overview dashboard provides a high-level system summary that includes the number of web paths and network paths, monitoring point status, service level compliance, violations, and network path status in the form of a GeoMap and a TreeMap.
  • Current Network Violation Map—The Current Network Violation Map dashboard provides a geographical view of your network status. It also allows you to filter paths directly rather than indirectly via Network Path Groups or Saved Lists.
  • Web App Performance—The Web App Performance dashboard provides the status of selected web app groups over time (up to 30 days).

Current Network Violation Map dashboard

The Current Network Violation Map dashboard provides a geographical view of your network status. It displays all path sources (Monitoring Points), path targets (URLs, server/workstation IP, or Monitoring Point), and the WAN paths between them on a world map.

As you zoom out, sources and targets that are geographically close to one another are aggregated into a cluster. The paths connecting the sources and targets are also aggregated. As you zoom in, they separate. Clicking on a source icon, a target icon, or a path, provides further details about that object.

The dashboard also provides direct filtering via a filter bar rather than having to filter based on a Network Path Group or a Saved list.
