Diagnostic information that is collected by the WebLogic Diagnostic Framework is displayed in a series of views in the Monitoring Dashboard. Only one view is displayed at a time.
A view can contain one or more charts. A chart contains a viewport, legend, labels, and controls for identifying and displaying metrics. A metric is a run-time MBean property with a numeric or Boolean value that is useful to measure, either as its current value or as its change over time. A chart can display metrics from one or more MBean instances from one or more servers in the domain.
The list of available views includes a number of built-in views, which are listed beneath the Built-in Views node of the View List. Built-in views can be displayed, but they cannot be modified, renamed, or deleted. For a complete list of built-in views provided for the Monitoring Dashboard, see Built-In Views.
Beneath the Built-in Views node of the View List is the My Views node, which lists the user-defined, or custom, views. You can create a custom view by copying a built-in view, or from scratch. You can then modify, rename, or delete a custom view as desired. When a view is copied, it contains all the charts, metrics, and property settings of the view from which it was copied.
For more information about displaying or creating views, see Work with views in the Monitoring Dashboard.
