User dashboard

This dashboard or home view is the first screen you will see when you log in to Abiquo. It has Metrics, Hybrid, and Optimization tabs. 

  • You can sort tables by columns by clicking on them on the header rows
  • To jump directly to a VM, virtual datacenter or virtual appliance, double-click on its name or label.

Metrics

On the Home view dashboard, the Metrics tab provides an overview of the resources an enterprise is using on the platform.

To jump straight to a resource, click on the resource name in a table. To display more details of an event, click on the event in the table.

For the administrator, by default the platform displays the metrics for the current enterprise. To display metrics for another enterprise, select the enterprise or switch to it. 

For the user, the Metrics tab displays the metrics for the enterprise's virtual datacenters.

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. The display depends on user privileges, see Configure dashboard display

  • To view usage and limits for a single virtual datacenter, select Virtual datacenters from the drop-down list and then select one from the second drop-down list.
  • To view usage for an enterprise, select or switch to the enterprise, and select Enterprise from the drop-down list.

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 enterprise resources for the current enterprise, on the Dashboard Metrics panel, select Enterprise from the pull down menu.  

Display the dashboard for another tenant


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


Switch to another tenant


All Abiquo users belong to a tenant, which in Abiquo is called an enterprise. You will only be able to work with virtual resources in one tenant at a time, but to administer another tenant, you do not need to log out and log in again.

To switch to another tenant:

  1. In the Enterprises list select the tenant
  2. Click the Switch enterprises button beside the tenant name

  • 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, to jump straight to a VDC, VApp or VM, double-click on it, and the platform will automatically switch your user to the owner enterprise
  • You can also switch to another tenant in Users view
