Tactical Dashboard

Tactical Dashboard comes with a predefined KPIs catalog. You just need to select the managed landscape in scope together with the KPIs you want to monitor. You’ll then have to configure the relevant time periods that you want to monitor (last hour, last 24 hours, yesterday, last week…), your thresholds to calculate the color ratings as well as other parameters depending on the type of KPI.

As a main view, the Tactical shows the current status of the managed landscape for the selected periods. It is fast and simple to check if something is going wrong for one of the KPIs selected and to identify problematic systems.

From the main view, the dashboard offers, for each type of KPI, drill down capability to detailed views. Detail views provide best practice measures and advanced charts with various filters and selectors, to monitor closely the trend of the KPI and pin point the root causes when an issue occurs in the managed landscape.    

The objective of this blog is to describe the meaning of the Indicators available in the Tactical Dashboard:
