Optimize SolarWinds Platform views/classic dashboards for TV screens or mobile devices

This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products.

A Network Operations Center (NOC) view provides a single page view of critical statistics that can fit on a TV screen or a mobile device. If you define multiple subviews, they rotate automatically on the screen, each subview available as a separate slide.

Headers and footers are compressed in NOC views, increasing the available space to display widgets.

NOC views are only supported for classic dashboards/views.

Enable NOC Views

  1. Log in to the SolarWinds Platform Web Console using an account with the Manage Views privilege.
  2. Open a view/classic dashboard, and click the Customize Page (pencil) icon > Page Settings in the top left corner of the view.
  3. Select Enable NOC view mode.
  4. If the view contains several subviews, select the rotation interval for the subview.

    To get a direct link to a NOC view, use the Link to NOC View link.

  5. Click Done & Go to NOC View.

    The view is now displayed in the NOC mode, with a compressed header and footer, and without the left navigation area.

    If more subviews are defined for the view, you can see circles in the top right corner. The currently active tab is displayed in orange.

    To resume the original view with left navigation, click the NOC Settings icon in the top right corner of the view and click Exit NOC Mode.

    To add, remove widgets, or add subviews, click NOC Settings icon > Customize page.
