Dashboards

Dashboards are a quick way to get insights into key aspects of your storage at a glance. Identify storage systems that need your attention, monitor notifications of events that occur on your devices, get an overview of your environment, and more. And you can also use dashboards for switches and fabrics to gain quick access to health, performance, and diagnostic information. Knowing which dashboards to view, and when, can help you find and resolve problems on your storage before they impact your business.

How to access dashboards: From the Dashboards menu, just click the dashboard that you want to view.
