Views and widgets in SRM
The initial default views available from the SRM menu show summaries of storage information across your environment:
- Storage Home: a high level overview of all monitored storage objects, along with alerts and events.
- Performance Dashboard: an overview of storage objects showing performance data.
- Capacity Dashboard: an overview of storage objects showing capacity data.
When you drill down from these, the views are for individual storage objects, showing capacity and performance information.
Views can be customized to suit the needs of your users. For example, if you want to give different groups of users different levels of access to storage information, you can create custom views that restrict what they can and cannot see.
Click an object name in any widget to display the Details view for that object.
For information on editing, adding and copying views, see Customizing Views.
For information on setting permissions, see Manage user accounts.
Widgets were referred to as widgets in earlier versions of this documentation.
Views are comprised of widgets, and each widget contains data from one or more monitored objects such as performance, capacity, and disk count. You can add or remove widgets from views as needed.
The following image shows three widgets on the Storage Home dashboard: All Storage Objects, Storage Objects by Performance, and Array Raw Disk Capacity Summary.
