Display the status of child objects on Network Atlas maps, and change metric thresholds

This Orion Platform topic applies only to the following products:


The status of a map object icon reflects its current state, such as up or down. You can add a secondary status indicator to a map object to reflect metrics such as response time, CPU load, or the state of any child objects. This secondary status indicator appears at the bottom right corner of the status icon.

To add the secondary status indicator:

  1. Right-click the map object, and select Properties.
  2. Select Include Child Status on the Status properties page, and click OK.

To change the thresholds of the metrics:

  1. Right-click the map object, and select Properties.
  2. Click Metrics to view the Metrics properties page.
  3. To change the warning or critical threshold for a metric, click the threshold value, and type a new value.
  4. To ignore a metric, clear the metric.
  5. Click OK.

  • The secondary status indicator respects the Orion Web Console Status Rollup Mode setting for displaying status. See Status Rollup Mode in the Orion Platform.
  • All child objects and selected metric thresholds are taken into account to determine secondary status.
