Visualizing your data
We offer our customers many different ways to visualize the data being ingested and analyzed in the product.
Dashboards and widgets
Dashboards are easy way to view data in the product.
Easily configure different widgets to display any data in the system.
Drag and resize directly on the dashboard.
Check out the gear icon in the top left for additional viewing options. And remember, time controls provide a simple way to adjust the data being viewed.
Quickly visualize metric charts from any element in your environment. Elements are the logical grouping of similar metrics (ex. Windows, EC2, RDS)
The metrics page is great for troubleshooting issues. Use filtering and grouping to view and categorize key metrics in your environment.
Drag charts on top of other ones to merge their content. Merged charts can also be added to dashboard by clicking the upper right corner.
The inventory view displays by element everything we are monitoring, but also includes some quick views of metrics, alerts, and metadata. This page supports filtering and sorting to isolate any elements.
Check out the gear in the top right of the page to add columns to the main page. These columns can come from any tag or attribute (metadata) in the system.
From this page you also have some administrative functions like delete, tag, and putting elements into maintenance mode.
The product has many other tools to visualize data in the product but will be covered in those sections. The other two big use cases are the alerts generated by the monitoring tools and cost analysis.
All the cost analysis tools can be found under the reports tab in the top navigation bar.
Also remember the time controls and filters are global controls. The filters can be saved and follow you around the product to make it even easier to find and visualize your data.
