Introduction to the Network Dashboard

Introduction

The network dashboard provides a high-level overview of your network, showing you important information at a glance. The dashboard is composed of several components:

Resource Counts

Across the top of the dashboard are counts of the individual resources that exist on your network - gateways, services, clients, endpoint groups, AppWANs. Clicking on any of these boxes will bring you over to the management page for the particular resource, where you can add/modify/delete items.

Network Usage (Current Cycle)

This simple network utilization graph indicates how much data has traversed your network during the current billing cycle. It also extrapolates how much data you will consume by the end of the cycle, based on current usage patterns.

Network Utilization

This network utilization graph plots network usage over time. Use the time scale buttons, located in the upper right-hand corner of the pod, to zero in on the time period you are interested in viewing. When you change the time scale in this pod, it will also change the time scale in these other pods - endpoint usage, network event timeline, and open alarms.

Endpoint Usage (Top 5)

Use this pod to examine the individual endpoints (gateways and clients) that are consuming data on your network. You can see the top 5 endpoints that are sending or receiving data. You can also limit the view to only gateways, only clients, or both.

The time scale in this pod is controlled by the time scale options in the Network Utilization pod.

Network Event Timeline

The network event timeline pod displays the most recent events at a glance. More information can be found on the Network Events page, which you can navigate to by clicking the green globe in the top left-hand corner of your screen and selecting Network Events from the list. 

The time scale in this pod is controlled by the time scale options on the Network Utilization pod.

Open Alarms

The open alarms pod displays the most recent alarms at a glance. More information can be found on the Network Events page, which you can get to from the navigation menu.

The event scope is controlled by the time scale options on the Network Utilization pod.

 Network Health Indication

Network Main Dashboard has section to indicate Network Fabric Transport status during the time period selected in the Network Utilization section.   Green field of chart indicates no Transport Component Critical alarms during the time period.  Red section will indicate a percentage of time a Transport Critical alarm was seen for any service transport pool.   Note: when new transport pools for newly created services are provisioned, the Transport for that service can show as down for short periods of time, thus will show as red.   This will show as a small sliver in time.  This also doesn't imply the other services were/are not available, just ones utilizing the affected Transport pool.  If a persistent red health indication exists, customer support will correct this.   

Note: the time horizon is controlled by the time frame selector in the Network Utilization Selection.
