The main feature in your OneView system is the dashboard. The dashboard is what every user will see when entering the OneView System. The Dashboard is designed to show you if users can work efficiently with your IT systems. If all boxes on the dashboard are green, then all is fine. It’s as simple as that.
When you have installed OneView and opens it for the first time, you will see a dashboard with blue boxes. The blue color indicates that OneView does not have data that can be used for calculating status for the boxes.
The boxes on your dashboard may be
- GREEN indicating that the end users can use your IT systems without problems
- YELLOW indicating that the end users do not get the service they use to from your IT systems
- RED indicating that the users may not be able to work with your IT systems right now
- BLUE indicating that OneView is missing data for those systems
- WHITE indicating that your IT system is in a “service window” mode
- GREY indicating that OneView has not been able to pass on status to your dashboard
The first demo dashboard in OneView is put there as a source of inspiration. It is a demo example made to inspire you to design your own dashboard. Your own dashboard should show you if the users are able to work efficiently with your IT systems.
OneView can monitor all systems across any infrastructure so you may choose any layout you want. We recommend that you draw your own dashboard layout on a piece of paper before you start to configure OneView. This will prevent you from getting lost in a technical deep dive into all the features that you will see in OneView.
