The Dashboard is displayed after logging in to the system. On the Dashboard, statistics on the use of resources, such as CPU, memory, storage, storage IOPS, bandwidth and health of the cloud, are presented.
Resource statistics are visualized in the form of bars and charts that provide the following information.
|The percentage of virtual cores used by the system.
|The total amount of CPU cores available in the system.
|The percentage of memory used by the system.
|The total amount of memory (GB) available in the system.
|The percentage of storage space used by the system.
|The total amount of storage space (GB) available in the system.
|The Storage IOPS chart displays peaks of reads and writes I/O per second, in real time.
|The Health chart displays the total number of actions, including statuses of success, warnings or failures for a selected period of time. The available time periods that can be selected are: 'This Month', 'This Week', or 'Today'.
|The CPU Usage chart displays the peaks of CPU usage (%) in real time.
|The Bandwidth Usage chart displays the peaks of Traffic In/Out usage in MegaBits Per Second (MBPS) in real time.
The first two resource widgets are reporting the health status of the physical resources of the cluster, including the actual nodes as well as the physical disks:
|The number of physical nodes, including their health status
|The number of physical disks of the system, including their health status
The next four widgets report on the health status of the cluster, and provide the following immediate actions:
|The number of available networks, including their status
|Add new network
|The number of available datastores, including their status
|Add new datastore
|The number of available instances, including their status
|Add new instance
|The number of available clusters, including their status
|Add new cluster
The user is able to review the resources of each node (CPU Usage , Storage and Instances), by clicking on the hexagon-shaped button corresponding to each node, as illustrated in the following image:
