The web dashboard feature
To enable the web based dashbord, select “New” in the “Configure WebServer” view.
This will bring up the “New url” dialog. Specify an url for the dashboard and select no.dbwatch.dashboard:dashboard as the feature.
F.ex if we enter status as the url, and the Webserver is configured under localhost:8080 (example) the dashboard will be available on http://localhost:8080/status/index.html
The dashboard will work with the default settings, but there are a number of settings you can customize if you want.
The property query_instances is a dbwql query that specifies the instances that should be shown in the dashboard. The default query is instance, and this will return all the registered instances. You can change this query to return only a subset, f.ex to return only MS SQLServer instances change it to instance[databasetype=‘sqlserver’]
The property query_issues corresponds to the table at the bottom of the dashboard (see example below), by default this is a list of all alerts that have a “not ok” status, and their corresponding details.
The properties query_lost, query_alarm, query_warning, query_ok specifies what is shown in each corresponding part of the dashboard page. eg. The query_alarm query specifies what is shown in the alarm part.
