Dashboards

The Home view dashboard displays the cloud resource usage on the Metrics, Hybrid, and Optimization tabs. By default it is the first screen you will see when you log in. To return to this view from any other screen, click the Home "Q" icon. By default the platform displays the Metrics tab only; enable the Hybrid and Optimization tabs at Configuration View#Dashboard.

For the API documentation for this feature, see StatisticsResource

To jump to a virtual datacenter or VM double click on its name in the Virtual datacenters or VMs table. 

To display the dashboard statistics of an enterprise, click on the enterprise in the Enterprise list, or switch to the enterprise. The name of the selected enterprise will display above the dashboard panels.

Switch to another enterprise

Privilege: List all enterprises, Allow user to switch enterprise

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. All your actions with virtual datacenters, virtual appliances, VMs and VM templates will apply to the current enterprise until you switch to another enterprise. When you log out and log in again, the platform will not reset the enterprise, unless your environment uses LDAP or OpenID for user management, in which case the platform will reset the enterprise at login.

 

Metrics tab

The Metrics tab provides an overview of the resources an enterprise is using on the platform. By default the platform displays the metrics for the current enterprise. To display metrics for another enterprise, select the enterprise or switch to it.

Enterprise resources and virtual datacenter resources

This panel shows statistics of the resources used by an enterprise in all accessible datacenters, or the selected virtual datacenter. It also displays soft limits and hard limits when used. The display will depend on the user's scope and privileges. If the user does not have the privileges to display enterprise statistics and limits, only the virtual datacenter statistics will be available. 

Privilege: Display enterprise statistics, Display enterprise limits in statistics

By default, the statistics are updated at the interval set with the "Refresh interval for dashboard" parameter at Configuration View#Dashboard.

StatisticsDescription
Virtual CPUs

Virtual CPUs used by VMs that are currently deployed

Storage

VM disks that are created on the hypervisor datastore. This includes non-persistent VM system disks and ESXi hard disks.
These disks will be deleted when the VM is undeployed. Gigabytes of disks created on datastores.

MemoryGigabytes of RAM used by VMs that are currently deployed
Ext. StorageVolumes of iSCSI storage created on integrated/managed or generic iSCSI storage devices.
This includes volumes of persistent external storage and persistent VM system disks. Gigabytes of volumes created in VDCs.
VLANsPrivate VLANs defined in Abiquo. A default private VLAN is always created when you create a virtual datacenter. Number of VLANS created in VDCs
Public IPsNumber of IP addresses purchased or reserved in public VLANs
RepositoryNFS Repository space used by the enterprise in the Apps library including templates and instances but not conversions (GB). Available for enterprises only, not individual virtual datacenters

To view usage for an enterprise, select or switch to the enterprise, and select Enterprise from the dropdown list.

To view usage and limits for a single virtual datacenter, select Virtual datacenters from the dropdown list and then select one from the second dropdown list.

Events

This is a condensed view of the Events view logs. It is controlled with the same privileges as the Events view, so if the user has no events privileges, no events window will display here. Otherwise, the window will display all events for the enterprise or all events, depending on the user's role, privileges and scope.

You can filter the events by severity, including All, ERROR, INFO, and WARN.

Click on an event to open the event in a popup.
