The CloudCenter Dashboard

Overview

The CloudCenter Dashboard is the home page for the CloudCenter Manager (CCM) UI.

The CCM UI provides high-level, summary details that take the form of dashlets. The dashlet provides CCM UI location links for additional information.

The Summary Dashlet

Icon

The Summary dashlet displays information based on:

  • Compute Cost spending
  • Run Time spending in hours
  • Quantity of Running VMs

The listed items are displayed in the summary list.

You can click the link below the information to access the associated report.

The following are the dashlet view options:

  • View information:
    • View by Cloud (default)
    • View by Application
    • Includes Imported VM information (see VM Management for additional context)
    • The flow allows you to track data that is updated hourly over the last 30 days with fine-tuned resource details.
  • Summary of data hierarchy:
    • All Tenants (default, first four resources)
    • My Tenant by cloud

      My Tenant by application
    • My Data by cloud (only available for CloudCenter Deployed VMs, not Imported VMs)

      My Data by application
    • Sub-Tenant 1
    • Sub-Tenant 2, etc.

The data provided in the Dashboard depends on the Permission Control for each user. For example, standard users only see the same My Data details for both, View by Cloud and View by Application

  • My Data by cloud for a standard user:
  • My Data by application for a standard user:

My Plan Usage

The My Plan Usage section displays the user's plan as configured by the tenant administrator.

Based on the configured plan, you see additional data as displayed in the following images:

See Usage Plan for additional information.

Cloud Status

The CloudCenter dashboard lists the Health Status for each cloud in your CloudCenter deployment.

 

All configured clouds are displayed.

Cloud Health Status

The cloud health status displays on the CCM UI dashboard based both on cloud heath and CCO health:

Cloud Checking is disabled by default. If enabled, the monitor performs operations such as Create Volume, Start and Stop VMs and other operations. To enable cloud checks, change the test_cloud field for the corresponding record to true in the CLOUD_TYPES table for the monitor server and then restart the server.

Recent Deployments

This section displays the most recent deployment launched from your CloudCenter instance. Click the View More Deployments link to go directly to the Deployments page and to view the list of all launched deployments.

Be aware that projects are only displayed in the Project owner's dashboard. Even if other users are added to it, it will show up in the user dashboard after the project is published.

Favorite Deployments

Favorite deployments are listed on the dashboard under Favorite Deployments. Click the star icon next to a deployment to remove it from the Favorite list.

Click the link to go directly to the deployed application. See Deployments for additional information.

Notifications

Any time the CloudCenter platform configuration changes, you may also receive a corresponding notification. In each case, the notification is displayed in the Notifications section of the dashboard.

For example, Projects and Phases – each time a deployment is promoted or demoted.

Click the View More Notifications link to view the Activity Stream page which displays the notification list for the subject CloudCenter instance.

Disabling Google Charts

The CloudCenter platform uses Google Charts to display the VM usage over time on the Dashboard page. While some customers need to see these charts on a daily basis, other customers may need to address restricted internet connectivity and may need to keep your VMs at that same level of restriction and may not want to download the Google Chart JS from Google.com. If you do not download this application, your end users may see a JS error or even experience a frozen browser situation. To avoid this scenario, you can disable the use of Google Charts.

To disable the loading of Google Charts, follow this process:

  1. Access your CCM server.
  2. Edit the usr/local/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/config.js file.
  3. Set the following variable to false (default = true).

  4. Save and exit the file.

You have now disabled Google charts from loading when you launch the CCM UI.
