This dashboard is the first screen you will see when you log in to Abiquo. It has Metrics, Hybrid and Optimization tabs.
The Metrics tab provides a general view of the resources currently being used by your virtual datacenters, as well events.
Enterprise resources - virtual datacenters shows statistics of the resources used by your virtual datacenters. Select the virtual datacenter name from the pull-down list
As used by VMs that are currently deployed
|Storage||Represents the VM disks that are created on the hypervisor datastore, including non-persistent VM system disks and hard disks. These disks will be deleted when the VM is undeployed. Gigabytes|
|Memory||RAM used by VMs that are currently deployed. Gigabytes|
|External storage||Volumes created on integrated/managed iSCSI or NFS, or generic iSCSI storage. This includes volumes of persistent external storage and persistent VM system disks. Gigabytes of volumes created in VDCs|
|VLANS||Private VLANs defined in Abiquo. A default private VLAN is always created when you create a virtual datacenter. Number of VLANS created in VDCs|
|Public IPs||The number of IP addresses purchased or reserved in public VLANs, NAT IPs in NAT networks, and floating public IPs in public cloud providers|
|Virtual machines||The number of VMs deployed by the enterprise|
Key to the graph:
When there is a hard limit for a resource, the resource usage bar is solid green and it can extend to the hard limit.
When there is no limit for a resource, the resource usage bar is green but it continues to the end of the graph where it fades to white.
The platform displays a soft limit with a thin orange vertical bar.
If the user exceeds the soft limit for a resource, then the platform displays the resource usage as an orange bar.
|Virtual appliances||All the virtual appliances of the current enterprise in the platform, with totals in the table header|
|Virtual datacenters||All the virtual datacenters of the current enterprise in the platform, with totals in the table header|
|Last deployed VMs||The last five VMs deployed by the tenant on the platform. It can be filtered by user, including deleted users|
|Last triggered alerts||The last five alerts triggered for the tenant on the platform|
|Events||All events that you can access; to display full details of an event, can click on the event line.|
The Hybrid tab provides an overview of the distribution and cost of your resources between public cloud providers and private cloud.
|Virtual machines count||The enterprise's VMs that are deployed in public cloud providers or private cloud. You can filter the list by public cloud provider or private cloud.|
|Workload of VMs by location||A graph of the enterprise's VMs deployed in public cloud providers or private cloud. The virtual machines are counted by location (public cloud region or datacenter). To view the detailed list with a count of VMs in each location, click on the graph|
Hybrid billing widgets:
|Latest bills||The amount of the last bill and the change in spend from the previous bill for the selected provider|
|Show more bills||A graph with the most recent bills registered in the system. Move the mouse over the graph line to display the bill details|
|Estimated bill||For the current period, calculated using a linear regression of daily costs for the current period, and the change in spend from the last bill for the selected provider|
|Average cost per VM||Calculated from the last bill and the number of VMs in the selected provider|
The Optimization tab aims to help you make best use of your cloud resources.
For more details of a VM, click on the arrow symbol beside the VM details
|Highest CPU usage||The five VMs with highest average CPU usage over the last 30 days|
|Highest RAM usage|
The five VMs with highest average RAM usage over the last 30 days
|Longest time ON||The five VMs with the highest uptime on the platform in hours, calculated from the accounting data and not requiring the VMs to currently be in any specific state. You can filter by user name and deleted users|
|Lowest CPU usage||The five VMs with lowest average CPU usage over the last 30 days|
|Lowest RAM usage||The five VMs with lowest average RAM usage over the last 30 days|
|Unused public IPs||The public, floating, or NAT IPs that have been reserved by the tenant but are not in use on a deployed VM|
|Unused load balancers||The load balancers that have been created by the tenant in the provider but are not in use for deployed VMs|
The administrator dashboard has a list of enterprises in the left panel.
By default the platform displays the Metrics tab only. To enable the Hybrid and Optimization tabs for users, assign the appropriate user privileges.
To configure billing widgets on the Hybrid tab, see Display cloud provider billing data.
The administrator can display Enterprise resources with totals for the tenant as well as the virtual datacenters. The administrator can display enterprise limits.
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. 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.
When you are viewing the dashboard for another enterprise, you can double-click on a virtual datacenter, virtual appliance, or VM to jump straight to it. In this case, the platform will automatically switch you to the enterprise that owns the virtual infrastructure.
