Operations and Deployment Views were created to allow users, especially DevOps, to gain a broader picture of application stability and reliability. These views enhance your top-to-bottom drill-down work-flow, starting from the widest point-of-view and quickly and elegantly streamline towards critical errors and exceptions.
This allows you to move directly from an Ops role where you look for spikes, anomalies and introduction of new errors into your environment, to a developer role focused on fixing the issue.
By default, the Dashboard event list is grouped by events, in which each row represents a different event. Choosing a different grouping mode will change the events list focal point from error-based to server or application-based.
To change the grouping mode:
- From the Event Chart toolbar, click Group by drop-down list and select the group:
Grouping by Applications, displays the same Events List grouped into applications - each row represents a specific application with all relevant information attached.
Grouping by application gives an insightful environment overview, providing a comprehensive analytic workflow. Clicking on any row switches back to the event-based list filtered by the chosen application/server.
To open filtered events:
- From the Events List toolbar, click + and select Multi Select.
- From the Applications list, select the applications to display.
- From the Event Chart toolbar, Show Events.
The selected events that match all the selected filters are displayed in the Events List.
Deployments View behaves similarly to the Operations View. Choosing Deployment to Group by displays the different deployments in each row.
Having selected one or more deployments, click New Events to display newly introduced events within the selected deployment(s).
Note: As opposed to the Operations View, the Deployment View requires that you set up each deployment prior to using the View. For more information, click here.
