The IDERA Dashboard is a common technology framework designed to support the entire IDERA product suite. The IDERA Dashboard allows users to get an overview of the status of their SQL Servers and hosted databases in a consolidated view, while providing users the means to drill into individual product dashboards for details. 

The IDERA Dashboard is comprised of the following tabs:

In the IDERA Dashboard users can glance at their registered products overall status through the Overview tab. This tab contains product widgets of all the products registered with the IDERA Dashboard. By default the Overview tab contains the following widgets:

  • Alert Status - displays the total number of alerts available on the environment in the current date an time. It also displays the number of alerts by status: Critical, Warning, Informational, or Ok.
  • Instance status - displays the total number of the monitored instances on the environment in the current date an time. It also displays the number of instances by status: Critical, Warning, Informational, Ok, or Disabled.

You can expand or collapse a widget by clicking . You can also view a widget in full size by clicking  or remove it by clicking .

Additionally, you can Filter information either by product or tags on the top section of this tab. If you want to remove your filters, click on Clear filters.

The Details View allows users to view their Instance Details. Select the instance on the drop-down list available and the IDERA Dashboard will filter information regarding to that instance.

The Alerts view allows users to view the information about available alerts on the environment. This information can be filtered by:
