SWQL examples for new widgets

This topic applies to all Orion Platform products.

Starting with Orion Platform 2020.2, you can use SWQL to define what you want to see in your widgets on modern dashboards.

See the THWACK post on modern dashboards for an overview of the feature.

The SWQL code depends on the widget type.

To use the code to define the data model for a widget

  1. Add the widget on a dashboard.
  2. In Data model, select Hand edit a SWQL query and paste the example.
  3. Complete the widget configuration and click Save Changes.

KPI Widgets

Number of all events

SELECT COUNT(EventID) as value FROM Orion.Events

Number of monitored nodes

SELECT COUNT(NodeID) as value FROM Orion.Nodes

Number of monitored nodes that are up

SELECT Count (Status) as value FROM Orion.Nodes WHERE (Status = 1)

Number of monitored nodes in the critical status

SELECT Count (Status) as value FROM Orion.Nodes WHERE (Status = 14)

Number of monitored nodes in the warning status

SELECT Count (Status) as value FROM Orion.Nodes WHERE (Status = 3)

Number of monitored nodes in unknown status

SELECT Count (Status) as value FROM Orion.Nodes WHERE (Status = 0)

Proportional widgets

Nodes grouped by their status

SELECT COUNT(NodeID) as value, Status as status FROM Orion.Nodes GROUP BY status ORDER BY value DESC

Customize node status colors (you can change colors in the code)

SELECT COUNT(1) as value, Status,
	CASE WHEN Status = 1 THEN 'status_up' WHEN Status =14 THEN 'status_down' WHEN Status =3 THEN 'status_warning' ELSE 'status_unknown' END as icon,
       CASE WHEN Status = 1 THEN 'green' WHEN Status =14 THEN 'red' WHEN Status = 3 THEN 'yellow' ELSE 'gray' 
END as color
FROM Orion.Nodes GROUP BY status ORDER BY value DESC

Table widgets

Display 25 latest events

SELECT TOP 25 COUNT(e.EventID) as value, t.Name as type

FROM Orion.Events e JOIN Orion.EventTypes t ON e.EventType = t.EventType

GROUP BY type ORDER BY value DESC

See all display options for nodes

SELECT NodeId as id, DisplayName as NodeName, Status as NodeStatus, VendorIcon as NodeVendor, DetailsUrl as NodeUrl FROM Orion.Nodes
