Introduction

Dashboard Views enable you to customize the dashboard into accessible Views. Views you create can be shared with other team members directly from the Views Pane at the left side of the Dashboard.

Views encapsulate the grid columns, the search phrase, sorting, filtering, chart series, servers and applications. This enables you to filter the Dashboard for a specific application and types of errors (e.g. HibernateException, NullPointerException...) and save that filter as a View for constant use. 

OverOps Views are collected into View Folders (VF) to facilitate Data management. Events are grouped into logical categories. New Views are gathered under My Views, and any View can be added to Favorites for your convenience.

View Folders can be dragged up and down to appear above or under the Show more button. 

View Folders

The Dashboard provides a number of Views by default, each providing a handy set of filters you can use to focus on a specific class of errors. These include:

  • Favorites - This VF enables you to collect your most used Views in one folder. The default favorites VFs are: All Events, Logged Errors, New This Week and Uncaught Exceptions.
  • CI/CD - This VF includes New Today, New this week, Resurfaced
  • Exceptions - This VF includes Views for the types of exceptions recorded by OverOps, as well as All Exceptions:
    • Uncaught Exceptions - Exceptions that were not captured by the user’s application
    • Swallowed Exceptions - Exceptions that were captured but ignored by the user’s application
    • JVM Errors - Exceptions thrown by the core Java framework (i.e. java.util.*, java.lang.*) in the current time frame. This is an especially powerful view to detect exceptions which for the most part represent code defects that your application should not be normally experiencing such as: NullPointerException, IndexOutOfBoundsException, InvalidCastException and more.
    • HTTP ErrorsHTTP communication errors
  • Logs - includes Logged Errors and Logged Warnings
    • Logged Errors - All logged warnings within the current timeframe. This is a useful view for seeing whether or not there's been a spike in the number of warnings within the current timeframe.
    • Logged Warnings - All logged warnings within the current timeframe. This is a useful view for seeing whether or not there's been a spike in the number of warnings within the current timeframe.
  • Timers - This VF includes all the Timers added to the Dashboard.
  • Infrastructures - Includes DB Errors and Network Errors:
    • DB Exceptions - the most common DB error types to enable you to detect new and increasing DB errors within your application(s). These include: java.sql.*, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, H2, Derby, CouchBase, Riak, Memcached and Amazon SimpleDB/DynamoDB exceptions.
    • Network Errors - the most common network error types to enable you to detect new and increasing networking errors within your application(s). These include: javax.net.*, Finagle, Kafka, JBoss, Mongo, Undertow, Cascading and Apache Catalina, Coyote and Jasper exceptions.
  • Alerts - Includes all Views with alerts configured for them
  • My Views - Includes all the personal custom Views you created for yourself
  • Team Views - Includes custom Views shared with your team members.
  • Labels - Includes labelled events 
  • Trash - Includes Resolved and Deleted events.

Creating Custom Views

You can further customize those by changing the timeframes, selected applications, grid columns and more and save them as new view as described below.

From the Event Chart, events in the Views can be further filtered by time frames:

  • Last Hour - shows all events occurring within the last hour timeframe. This view is useful for giving you a real-time view of the behavior in your application.
  • Last Day - this View provides a bird's eye view of all errors occurring within your application(s) over the last 24 hour window. This is useful view to see any spikes or fluctuations in errors as a result of a new deployment or environment change/outage. 
  • New Today - this View enables you to see all new errors that were introduced into your application(s) over the last day. This is a great view to use following a deployment to be able to see exactly if/what new errors were introduced to triage and analyze the most critical ones.
  • New This Week - this View enables you to see all new errors that were introduced into your application(s) over the last week. This is a great view to use following one or more deployments to be able to see exactly if/what new errors were introduced to triage and analyze the most critical ones.

 

You can save any combination of grid filters, search phrase, visible columns, sorting and selected servers/applications as a persistent View which you can name and reuse. This View can also be shared with team members or be private and visible only to you. Each view has a name, description and a toggle to control whether it is visible to your teammates or only to you.

To create a custom View:

  1. Choose the relevant grid filters, search phrase, visible columns, sorting and selected servers/applications, and click Save View.
