Learning about the Dashboard

The charts on the Dashboard provide a visual representation of the general health and status of the appliance and managed resources in your data center. From the Dashboard, you can immediately see resources that need your attention. For direct access to resources needing your attention, click the resource name.

Each time you log in to the appliance, the Dashboard is the first screen you see. Select Dashboard from the main menu any time you want to see the Dashboard charts.

The Dashboard displays status of the most relevant resources that are associated with assigned user roles. If you are assigned multiple roles, such as Network and Storage roles, the default dashboard displays the combination of resources that each role would see on the dashboard. You can customize your display by adding, deleting, and moving resource panels.
