Dashboards

The Dashboards tab centralizes various charts, topological maps, statistical tables, diagrams, etc., exported from external tools to WOCU-Monitoring, based on the configuration and choice of the Administrator. The system allows for the integration, visualization, and management of data from multiple sources, rendering them within its own interface.

Attention

The Dashboards tab will only be enabled when dashboards ar

Thanks to the versatility of WOCU-Monitoring in managing countless metrics, tables, databases, etc., of different types and origins, it is possible to generate dashboards with powerful graphical capabilities. These can show, for example, the real-time behavior of monitored infrastructures, aiding in incident resolution, or the logical relationships and interactions between applications in a local network through network diagrams.

Important

WOCU-Monitoring offers a series of OpenSource tools as a complement to its functions, from which a variety of dashboards can be generated and exported; see Grafana, Nagvis, Pnp4nagios, Thruk-panorama, etc. More information at: Additional Tools (Monitoring).

The operation of these tools is independent of WOCU-Monitoring, but they are useful for various daily monitoring tasks.

Configuration of Dashboards

The configuration of this view is entirely flexible and will depend on the Administrator’s needs and use cases. The configuration will be carried out only by system Administrators, but it will be visible to other users

Note

From Advanced Configuration (WOCU Engine), the Administrator can link and manage resources generated in external tools but with data extracted from WOCU-Monitoring. It is as simple as adding the URL of the elements to be incorporated into our dashboard. Once linked, the Realm in which this WOCU Engine is configured will have the corresponding elements available

Dashboard Analysis

Three views are available:

../../_images/2_075_aggregator_realm_dashboards-subsections_0-60.png

En las dos últimas vistas (Fullview y Panels), se encuentran disponibles diversas opciones para filtrado, paginación y refresco de datos. A continuación, se detallan estas opciones:

  • Refresco de los elementos mostrados: haciendo clic sobre el icono de las flechas en movimiento circular (🔁), se forzará un refresco inmediato. Esta acción es útil para asegurarse de que se visualiza la información más actualizada.

    ../../_images/2_076d_aggregator_realm_dashboards-refresh_0-40.jpg
  • Selección de un rango temporal: sobre el que se referirán los datos reflejados de los elementos del cuadro de mando. Se pueden seleccionar varios criterios temporales predefinidos o configurar un periodo de tiempo personalizado mediante la opción Custom Range. Esto es esencial para análisis específicos y comparaciones temporales.

  • Filtro de selección de paneles: este selector lista todos los paneles disponibles en el Reino. Seleccionando uno de ellos, se mostrarán los elementos asociados al panel en cuestión.

    ../../_images/2_076b_aggregator_realm_dashboards-selector_0-60.png
  • Pagination and navigation between views: the different resources and elements will be arranged over several pages. At the bottom of the view, there is a pagination menu useful to navigate through all the available views.

Summary Realm

Esta vista se encuentra dividida en tres secciones principales. Cada una de ellas incluye diversos widgets interactivos, juntos con modales informativos y opciones de exportación de datos.

../../_images/2_072_aggregator_realm_dashboards-summary_0-60.png

Cada uno de los widgets que componenten la vista son explicados en detalle en: Assets Hosts.

Summary Realm Assets State

Integrada por cinco widgets interactivos cuyos gráficos hacen una distinción entre Dispositivos según los estados de monitorización registados, Dispositivos duplicados por nombre e IP y aquellos con chequeos deshabilitados.

Summary Realm Services

Integrada por cuatro widgets interactivos cuyos gráficos hacen una distinción de Dispositivos por estados de monitorización críticos registados y por servicios con chequeos deshabilitados.

Summary Realm Host By Pack State

Integrada por dos widgets interactivos cuyos gráficos están vinculados al uso de Packs de Monitorización.

Note

A través de la vista Aggregator Summary, WOCU-Monitoring ofrece estas mismas mediciones a nivel global, es decir, considerando la totalidad de elementos que integran la red monitorizada (sin distinción de Reino).

Fullview

Esta vista muestra un único panel (con sus correspondientes representaciones gráficas) por cuadro de mando.

Panels

This view displays up to 10 panels per page. If this number is exceeded, they will be distributed over several pages. To display a specific panel, select it in the drop-down menu above and the view will be updated with the marked element (removing the rest of the panels).

Customization of Dashboards and interactive functions

Los cuadros de mando son entornos dinámicos formados por multitud de componentes interactivos. Asimismo, al soportar y cargar gran variedad de widgets, existen multitud de opciones aplicables que variarán en función de la tipología de cada elemento y del alcance de la herramienta que los provee a WOCU-Monitoring. Algunas interacciones posibles sobre elementos son:

  • By placing the cursor over any point on graphs, diagrams, maps, etc., an extra information window will pop up. For example: values recorded for the particular point, monitoring status information, geolocation of nodes, etc.

  • By clicking on one of the series in the legend, only the marked series will be displayed on the graph, clearing the view and hiding the rest of the series. To restore the initial graph, repeat the action by clicking again on the series or refresh the view (🔁).

  • Manual selection of metric data intervals. Clicking and dragging with the left mouse button on a specific area of a graph will select an interval that will result in the updating of the graph with the data corresponding to the marked plot.

    This action can be repeated indefinitely, each time obtaining a smaller selected range than the previous one and reaching a high level of detail.

  • Among many others, there is the possibility to share, delete or duplicate panels, buttons to manipulate the zoom of maps or a multitude of options for panel styling and formatting.
