One type of data from several different hosts within a single domain
Several types of data from one host
Several types of data from different hosts within a single domain
An example of the first concept is a dataview that monitors CPU usage in group of hosts. An example of the second concept is a dataview that monitors disk space and CPU usage on one host.
Dataviews allow you to combine information from different hosts within a Sun Management Center domain; however, you cannot create a dataview that combines data from different domains.
The data that is used to create a dataview is copied from different sources, including:
Dataviews are an excellent way of monitoring a collection of unrelated information. Because these views are presented in a table, a variety of data can be easily compared. Dataviews are created once and are refreshed automatically. Dataviews have all the features of module tables, except that cells cannot be edited. In dataviews, alarm status is correctly propagated. Cells that have triggered a critical alarm appear in red.
When you create a dataview, the dataview is stored in the database. The dataview persists until you explicitly delete the dataview. In addition, because dataviews are stored in the database, dataviews can be shared. Any dataview that is built on a particular Sun Management Center server can be viewed by all authorized users on that server.
File, which enables you to save the current dataview to a name or to close the current dataview
Edit, which enables you to paste a dataview from the clipboard or to delete selected rows
Tools, which provides direct access to the Attribute Editor for the selected cell
Help, which displays online help
