Plan what should be on a view/classic dashboard in the SolarWinds Platform
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.
Plan what should be on a view before you create it or before you start customizing it.
Before you create a view/classic dashboard
|Identify objects to see on the view/dashboard.||Select the appropriate object type, such as nodes, interfaces, groups, applications, and so on.|
|View information for all objects of the selected object type.||Select a Summary view.|
|View details for a selected object.||Select a Details view.|
Customize what the view/classic dashboard displays
|Specify information about the objects you want to see.||Add widgets that display metrics you want to see.|
|Divide the information into several tabs.||Create tabs and specify widgets for each tab.|
|Optimize the view/classic dashboard for large screens or mobile devices.||Create a Network Operations Center (NOC) view.|
|Limit what devices should be displayed.||Add a limitation.|
|Access the view from My Dashboards.||Add the view/dashboard into a menu bar and make sure the menu bar is available for users you are targeting.|
|View entities on a map.||
