Introduction to the Hyperic Dashboard

Topics marked with * relate to features available only in vFabric Hyperic.

Hyperic Dashboard

The Hyperic Dashboard is the first page displayed in the Hyperic user interface when you log on. The dashboard contains multiple portlets, each of which presents a particular type of information, such as resource health, recent alerts, recently discovered resource or changes to resources, recently performed resource control actions, and so on. 

You can can personalize the dashboard to suit your responsibilities and preferences; you can add or remove portlets, rearrange them, and customize the contents of many of the portlets.

In vFabric Hyperic, you can have multiple dashboards — one for each role to which you are assigned. For more information, see Using Multiple Dashboards in vFabric Hyperic.

Note also that in vFabric Hyperic, the roles you are assigned to govern what resource data appears in dashboard portlets. Portlets will contain only the resource data to which your Hyperic roles allows access. For more information, see User Accounts and Roles in Hyperic.
