The first page you see is the Farm home page. You can also view this page at any time by selecting the name of the farm in the navigation pane (Figure 6-1).
From the navigation pane, you can drill down to view and manage all components in your farm, including WebCenter Spaces and any custom WebCenter applications that you may have deployed. For detailed instructions, see
The WebCenter Spaces home page is your starting place for managing WebCenter Spaces. The page displays status, performance and availability of all the components and services that make up WebCenter Spaces.
From here you can:
View key group space performance data and track overall response time. Quickly see which group spaces are used the most, the slowest performers, and determine which group spaces are recording the most errors.
Navigate to key WebCenter Spaces components, including the application itself, WebLogic Server installation, MDS repository, and the deployed J2EE application.
View status and key performance metrics for WebCenter services used in the application.
Drill down to detailed performance information for individual group spaces, services, external applications, portlets, and producers.
The WebCenter Spaces home page also displays a WebCenter menu (Figure 6-3).
From the WebCenter menu, you can:

View a performance summary, entry points to the application, Web Services and modules associated with the application, and the response and load data which shows the requests per second and the request processing time.
Navigate to key components of the custom WebCenter application.
Drill down to detailed performance information for individual modules and services.
Monitor detailed performance metrics for WebCenter services (see Chapter 15, "Monitoring Oracle WebCenter Performance").
To navigate to the main home page for your custom WebCenter application:
Login to Fusion Middleware Control.
In the Navigator (Figure 6-7), expand Application Deployments.
Select the name of your custom WebCenter application to display the application's home page.
Notice WebCenter menu options display on the Application Deployment menu (Figure 6-8).
From WebCenter application pages it is easy to navigate to pages belonging to related components, such as, WebLogic Server domains, servers, Java components, MDS repository, and so on.
WebCenter Spaces - From the home page, click links in "Related Components" to navigate to the WebCenter Spaces application itself, as well as WebLogic Server installation pages, MDS repository pages, and J2EE application pages in Fusion Middleware Control. See also, Section 6.2, "Navigating to the Home Page for WebCenter Spaces".
From the J2EE application page you can also access ADF and security information.
Custom WebCenter applications - The Application Deployment menu on the J2EE application home page offers direct navigation to the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console, as well as pages relating to ADF, MDS repository, and security. See also, Section 6.3, "Navigating to the Home Page for Custom WebCenter Applications".
