Last Updated: Jul 04, 2018

The user interface of Application Monitoring helps you make diagnosis online. To monitor the real-time application status, for example, by displaying it on a screen, you can create a dashboard for the application monitoring job. This topic explains how to create a dashboard for an application monitoring job.

Prerequisites

You have created an application monitoring job in ARMS. For instructions on how to create an application monitoring job, see Hands-on tutorial: Create an application monitoring job and Create an application monitoring job. Here is the overview page of an application monitoring job.

Procedure

  1. In the left-side navigation pane of the console, choose Dashboards, and click Create Dashboard in the upper-right corner of the Dashboards page. The Create Dashboard dialog box is displayed.
  2. Enter the dashboard name in the dialog box, and click OK. For example, enter App Dashboard. A blank tab page is created automatically for this dashboard.
  3. Click the pencil icon on the top of the tab page, enter the application name in the Tag dialog box, and then click Save. For example, enter Tomcat-Demo.

  4. Add an application topology diagram. In the editing mode, in the upper-right corner of the page, click Interactive Control > APM Monitoring Topology. In the APM Topology dialog box, enter the topology name, select a dataset of the application monitoring job, and click OK.

  5. Drag the lower right corner of a chart to resize it as needed. Drag the chart to change its position.

  6. Add an APM monitoring chart. In the editing mode, in the upper-right corner of the page, click Interactive Control > APM Monitoring Graph. In the New Interactive Chart dialog box, enter all required information, and click OK. For example, after selecting an application site, select Interface Metric in the Type drop-down list, select All in the Dimension drop-down list, and select a.count (invocation volume) in the Metric drop-down list.

  7. Repeat these steps to add two more APM monitoring charts respectively for responding time and error count. In the New Interactive Chart dialog box, select the same application site, type, and dimension as in the previous step, but select a.rt (responding time) and a.errcount (error count) in the Metric drop-down list. Here is the created dashboard.

  8. For additional applications, you can click the “+” button on the top of the tab page to add a new tab page, and follow the preceding steps to add more application monitoring charts.

  9. In the editing mode, in the upper-right corner of the page, click View Mode, and then click Full-screen to display the dashboard in full-screen mode.

    Tip: To switch to the dark theme, click Theme > Dark in the upper-right corner of the page.
