The Home view dashboard gives you statistics and an overview of the resources you are managing on the platform. It is the first screen you will see when you log in. To return to this view from any other screen, click the Home icon . The home view dashboard is a general view of the resources currently being used by your enterprise in four different panels, described from left to right, top down: Enterprise Resources, Virtual appliances, Virtual datacenters, and Events.
To jump to a virtual datacenter or VM double click on it in the Virtual datacenters or VMs table.
All information shown is contextualized for the current user and this documentation assumes that the user has administrator privileges.
To display the dashboard statistics of an enterprise, click on the enterprise in the Enterprise list. The name of the selected enterprise will display above the dashboard panels.
To switch to another enterprise to administer that enterprise, click the switch enterprise button beside a name in the enterprise list. The name of the enterprise that you are currently using will be displayed beneath your username in the top right-hand corner of the screen. When you log out and log in again, the enterprise will not be reset.
All your actions with virtual datacenters, virtual appliances, VMs and VM templates will apply to the current enterprise until you switch to another enterprise.
This screen shows statistics of the resources used by the current or selected enterprise and/or the selected virtual datacenters in all the accessible datacenters. The view will depend on the user's scope and privileges. See Enterprise Statistics and Virtual Datacenter Statistics for more information.
