The Dashboard is a page displaying a graphical view of the server parameters and metrics that in most situations will give you a quick overview of the server load and performance. Monyog ships with a default dashboard called "Performance metrics" which includes the metrics:
- Cache misses
- Database Throughputs
- Disk IO
- CPU usage
How is the refresh interval defined?
Every graph displays related metrics using different colors. In the Charts interface the X-axis timestamps are not printed, and the time interval between each will reflect the server-specific setting for the sample interval. For that reason the display for different servers cannot be compared if this setting is different. Even the time-interval between the plotted values may vary for a single server if less than 15 samples are available since the sample interval was changed for that server. If no data are available for a period because MONyog service was stopped, two empty sample points will display in the grid no matter how long time has passed.
Just click on the drop down menu containing the Dashboard names, and select the "Add New Dashboard" option. This will open the page where you can give a suitable dashboard name and decide the charts which will be enabled for your dashboard.
Dahboard settings can be changed from the dashboard page itself. These are local (browser specific) settings that are stored in a cookie.
