HID_Vendor_Specific_Dashboards
The following dashboards are associated with specific vendors. The views on each dashboard are customized to fit the needs of each vendor.
Cisco UCS Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The Cisco UCS platform integrates networking, virtualization, storage access, and management of the UCS components chassis, blade server, and Fabric Interconnect (a FCoE switch).
The Cisco UCS Overview dashboard provides performance and status information about Cisco UCS blade servers, chassis, and fabric interconnects. From the Overview page, you can drill down to the Blade, Chassis, and Fabric Interconnect Overview pages. From these Overview pages, you can drill down to component-level views that allow you to view trends.
All these views exploit the capabilities of the Cisco UCS manager that is integrated within Cisco UCS. A malfunctioning component such as a memory module or a fan can be easily identified and replaced before it becomes a severe problem.
Engineers can use this information to troubleshoot problems with the blade chassis physical components, including power supplies, fans, CPUs, and memory modules.
Cisco UCS Blade Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Blade Overview dashboard provides performance and status information about Cisco UCS blade servers. From the Overview page, you can drill down to component-level views that allow you to view trends.
For example, a single blade can have up to 24 memory modules. Using this view, an overheated memory module can easily be identified. You can also a spot a malfunctioning fan at a single glance.
Cisco UCS Chassis Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Chassis Overview dashboard provides performance and status information about Cisco UCS chassis. From the Overview page, you can drill down to component-level views that allow you to view trends.
For example, a single chassis can have up to eight blades. Using this view, an overheated power supply can easily be identified. You can also spot a malfunctioning fan at a single glance.
Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Fabric Interconnect Overview dashboard provides performance and status information about Cisco UCS fabric interconnects. From the Overview page, you can drill down to component-level views that allow you to view trends.
Use this view to identify CPU consumption of a heavily loaded fabric interconnect. You can also a spot a malfunctioning fan or power supply at a single glance.
Citrix VDI Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The Citrix VDI Overview dashboard provides performance and status information on the Citrix VDI Management Servers and Desktops. Citrix Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is the market leading technology for providing virtualized desktops using Hypervisor technologies. Currently,
CA Performance Management
supports VMware vSphere Hypervisors. From the Overview page, you can drill down to device-level views to isolate a problem.
Engineers can use this information to troubleshoot problems. Capacity planners can use this information to see which services are overloaded and plan for more VDI servers.
The CPU and Memory reports available in both the Citrix VDI Overview dashboard and the Citrix VDI Server Overview dashboard can display metrics that are not explicit to the Citrix VDI metric family. To avoid this problem, we recommend that you edit the view and save its context to a particular group to ensure the dashboard only reports on Citrix VDI controllers.
Desktop information provided includes:
  • Number of desktops
  • Desktops that are showing exceptional utilization
  • Content of desktop groups
  • Available VMs in the VDI catalog
Engineers can use this information to get a quick overview of the infrastructure and its utilization.
Infrastructure servers (called desktop controllers) information provided includes:
  • State
  • CPU
  • Memory
  • Storage
  • Network utilization
Engineers can use this information to identify bottlenecks on the controllers before they become problems.
Citrix VDI Desktop Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The Citrix VDI Desktop Overview dashboard provides performance and status information on the Citrix VDI Desktops. Citrix Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is the market leading technology for providing virtualized desktops using Hypervisor technologies. Currently,
CA Performance Management
supports VMware vSphere Hypervisors. From the Overview page, you can drill down to device-level views to isolate a problem.
Desktop information provided includes:
  • The number of desktops
  • The desktops that are showing exceptional utilization
  • The content of desktop groups
  • Available VMs in the VDI catalog
Engineers can use this information to get a quick overview of the infrastructure and its utilization.
Citrix VDI Server Page
The Citrix Server page contains the following views:
  • Citrix VDI Controller - Registered Desktops (Table)
  • Citrix VDI Controller - Services Health (Table)
  • Citrix VDI Controller - State (Time Chart)
  • Citrix VDI Controller - Configuration (Table)
  • Top Citrix VDI Desktop - CPU/Latency/Logon Time (Table)
  • Citrix VDI Desktop Group - Used Desktops/Group Enabled (Table)
  • Citrix VDI Desktop Group - Desktops Available/Connected (Table)
  • Citrix VDI Catalog - Used VMs (Table)
  • Citrix VDI Catalog - Assigned VMs (Table)
On the Citrix Server page all metrics are in the scope of its controller, except for desktop group and catalog metrics.
IBM LPAR Overview Dashboard and Device Views
Use the IBM LPAR Overview dashboard and device views to see the status of overall LPAR performance for the enterprise or a specific device.
IBM LPAR Device Component Views
The IBM LPAR Device dashboard lets you view the overall status of a device component and determine if the component is causing an issue.
Microsoft Hyper-V Overview Dashboard and Device Views
Use the Hyper-V Overview dashboard and device views to see the status of overall Microsoft Hyper-V performance for the enterprise or a specific device.
Microsoft Hyper-V Device Component Views
View the overall status of a device component and determine if the component is causing an issue. 
Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory Overview Dashboard and Device Views
This overview dashboard helps you see the overall status of the monitored devices in your Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010, and Active Directory 2008 environments. This information includes directory domain services as well as mailbox and hub-transport mail services.
For those services you can identify the key performance metrics, which includes mail traffic and directory traffic metrics. You can then access device-level views to isolate a problem.
Engineers can use this information to troubleshoot problems. Capacity planners can use this information to see which services are overloaded and plan for more domain and mail servers.
Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory Device Component Views
View the overall status of a specific device component and determine whether the component is causing an issue.
Microsoft Cluster Service Overview Dashboard and Device Views
To see the overall status of the monitored devices that are part of your Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS), use the Microsoft Cluster Service Overview Dashboard.
You can identify which devices are the top offenders for:
  • Resource failures
  • Crypto and registry checkpoint restoration and saves
  • CPU and memory usage
  • Node traffic
  • Time spent in various states.
You can then access device-level views to isolate a problem.
Engineers can use this information to troubleshoot problems. Capacity planners can use this information to see which MSCS devices are nearing their utilization capacity and plan for more resources.

VMware Overview Dashboard and Device Views
The VMware Overview dashboard shows the overall status of monitored devices in your VMware environment, such as virtual centers, virtual machines, ESX hosts, and other supported devices. Use this information to identify which devices are the top offenders for attributes such as CPU and memory usage, bytes in/out, capacity, and the percentage of time that was spent in various states. You can then access device-level views to isolate a problem.
Engineers can use this information to troubleshoot problems. Capacity planners can use this information to see which virtual devices are maximizing their CPU shares and plan for more resources.
To access this dashboard, select Dashboards, VMware Overview. Drill down from the dashboard view to a specific device, and then select a VMware related tab for more detail about that device. To access the device pages directly, select Inventory, Devices, and select a supported device. Then select either the VMware, VMware ESX Host, or VMware Virtual Machine tab.
