NOC Views and Custom Dashboards

Open built-in dashboards, add views, and drag in and arrange reports critical for operational monitoring, troubleshooting, and forensics tasks.

Note: Dashboards for WhatsUp Gold Add Ons (Application Monitoring, Configuration Management, Log Management, Network Traffic Analysis, Virtual, and Wireless) can be accessed from the ANALYZE menu under WhatsUp Gold Add Ons.

Important: Reports found on any given dashboard view are limited to 50 records each. To display additional records, expand the report or view it in full-screen mode.

Step 2: Choose and open a dashboard

From the analyze menu (ANALYZE menu > Dashboards) on the main toolbar:

  2. Select a template from the Add View (WUG18.0.2-SP2-Add View) option under the dashboard actions (Report_Options) to create a new tabbed panel to which you can add reports.

Step 3: Create and customize views

Open and search the Add Reports (WUG18.0.2-SP2-IMG-ADD_REPORTS_ICON) palette and 'drag in' any of the reports into the current or an existing view.

Step 4: Share, schedule, and collaborate

Note: For scheduled reports, it is best practice to create an additional WhatsUp Gold user to ensure that the scheduled export and email of report data maintains consistent settings, graphing modes, and format. WhatsUp Gold Report Settings WUG17.0N-SP2-REPORTS-SETTINGS-IMG (settings for graphing, top n, and thresholding, for example) persist based on the report instance, the current device selected, and the WhatsUp Gold login you use.
