Introduction

The Status > Settings screen enables you to customize the Status Dashboard, including the statistics that appear and thresholds that indicate activity through the weather icons.

Layout

Use the layout tab to select the graphs that appear in the dashboard activity area, as defined in the following table.

Name
Units
Description
<empty>
-
No graph will be displayed in this location.
SMB
operations/sec
Average number of SMB operations.
CPU
utilization
Average cycles the appliance CPUs are busy. CPU cycles includes memory wait cycles.
Disk
operations/sec
Average number of operations to the physical storage devices.
HTTP
operations/sec
Average number of HTTP operations.
iSCSI
operations/sec
Average number of iSCSI operations.
FC
operations/sec
Average number of Fibre Channel operations.
Network
bytes/sec
Average bytes/sec across all physical network interfaces.
NDMP
bytes/sec
Average NDMP network bytes.
NFSv2
operations/sec
Average number of NFSv2 operations.
NFSv3
operations/sec
Average number of NFSv3 operations.
NFSv4
operations/sec
Average number of NFSv4 operations.
FTP
bytes/sec
Average number of FTP bytes.
SFTP
bytes/sec
Average number of SFTP bytes.

Note that to reduce the netowrk traffic required to refresh the Dashboard, configure some of the activity graphs as "<empty>".

Thresholds

Use the Thresholds screen to configure the dashboard activity weather icons. The defaults provided are based on heavy workloads, and may not be suitable for your environment.

The weather icon that appears on the Dashboard is closest to the threshold value setting for the current activity - measured as a 60 second average. For example, if CPU utilization was at 41%, by default, the Cloudy weather icon would appear because its threshold is 40% (closest to the actual activity). Select the Custom radio button to configure thresholds and be sure to configure them in the order they appear on the screen.

CLI

The dashboard currently cannot be configured from the CLI. Settings saved in the BUI will apply to the dashboard that is visible from the CLI.
