User Guide

Overview

In vFoglight, a service is defined as a grouping of one or more monitored components.

Typical examples of monitored components include a host, a database, a VirtualCenter server, etc.

Services can be nested within other services, each with their own monitored components. All vFoglight services are listed on the Services dashboard, which can be accessed from the navigation panel. From here you can perform the following tasks:

Monitoring Services

Viewing System-Wide Alarms and Service Details

Examining Details on a Single Service

Viewing Service Levels

Building a Service

Filtering Alarms

Monitoring System-Wide Alarms

Icons

There are several different types of icons used to represent monitoring data in vFoglight.

The types are:

Severity Icons

State Icons

Availability Icons

The severity and state icons tell you about the condition of an application, server, or process. They are based on the values stored in the metrics. What they represent changes according to their context. For example, the same state icon can indicate that a server is down or that a process is down.

Many summary views show icons that represent an aggregation of the detailed objects of similar types. vFoglight prioritizes the data when determining the aggregation. For example, if three test servers are down, and one production server is active, then a summary view would show a critical icon, not a fatal icon.

Depending on where it is, you can hover over a severity or state icon or click it to get further information about the condition it represents.
