AppStack data overview

The AppStack uses specific colors and icons, hover overs, and navigation options to help identify object status as you monitor:

Object status and colors

Objects in the AppStack display with colors based on their current status, providing a quick summary of your environment. Objects will be in one of the following states according to the icon color and shape:

Status Color Example
Down Red
Critical Pink
Warning Yellow
Unknown Gray
Unreachable Black
Up Green
Other Blue -
External Purple -

You can only filter against statuses actively monitored in the AppStack. For example, if no objects have a status of Down, the Down status is not available for filtering.

Servers can only provide an Up or Down status. To check CPU, memory, or hardware health status, hover over the server icon to view the detailed tooltip. The reported status for applications and LUNs is based on performance thresholds.

The AppStack Environment view offers a parent/child relationship. (Parents can be either servers or hosts.) This relationship is represented as a mixed icon. The parent is the larger of the two icons that is hosting the child. For example, the following illustration graphically shows that an application (child) is Down on a node (parent) that is Up.

Using quick links

Use the Quick Links bar to quickly open and close object categories. You can also show or hide the names of objects with a distressed status.

Expand All

Open all categories to reveal objects in each category. Each category can be individually expanded and collapsed by clicking [+] and [-] next to the category name.

Collapse All

Close all categories, hiding the objects within each category. Each category can be individually expanded and collapsed by clicking [+] and [-] next to the category name.

Show/Hide Names

Toggle between showing and hiding the names for each object in a distressed state. If more objects exist than can be displayed, the category name displays the number of displayed objects followed by the total number of objects. For example, (87 of 111), meaning only 87 objects of 111 total objects in this category are being displayed. This provides a numerical summary of your environment.

Click More (located after the last visible object in the category) to display the next 50 objects. Related objects may be found by clicking More. The default number of 50 can be changed in the Settings page.

Using the overview bar

The Overview Bar summarizes your environment in a compact space. If your view is currently filtered, the filtered objects display above the Overview Bar, as shown.

The doughnut chart in the Overview section displays the ratio of objects to one another in all possible states using indicative colored slices. The total number of objects in your environment is also displayed.

Objects under the Issues header are parsed and enumerated according to status. Objects shown here will be in one of the following distressed states: Down, Critical, Warning, Unknown and Unreachable. An icon and count will only appear if at least one object is currently in that state.
