Customizing my Dashboard

Hello,

   I understand this is the place to ask soem questions about my foglight install.  I would like to create a dashboard to make foglgith more useful to me, and have some questions for anyone willing to help out a Foglight newb;

--On the Alerts page, there is a filter option, but every time I filter I get zero results.  See, there are more then my servers being monitored, so I am trying to filter by *.domain.edu.  I tryed all the fields, and even though I see the field listed in the unfiltered list of alerts, when applied, there are no results

--On my new dashboard, I am trying to monitor an application called Banner INB.  Foglight successfully sees what I want (active sessions) but lists all the graph lines as 'baninb'.  I want to change the label to the server name.  I can determine this manually if I have too, but I cant even find a way to manually change the label type, it only allows me to select something in the dropdown.

--I have added two windows I want to delete.  Some of my windows have a little drop down arrow with a 'remove' option.  But two of my windows (experiments to see it worked) do not have the drop down, or anything.  How do I remove these windows?

Than you all for your time.  Also I would love some more specific docuemntation on how to accomplish more with the dashboard, but was unable to find much beyond the basic stuff.  If you know, that would be awesome!

  • For 1, It's a column display so there is no edit layout button (layout is already pre defined), fixed size layout (my peresonal favorite) is the one with the edit layout button. This is really strange, I tried different ways to recreate it and it's not happening on my machine. It's like the title bar collapsed and all you can see is just the top of it without being able to see the minimize and the properties button.

    Do you get the same behavior in different browsers (IE, FF, chrome, Safari)? Does this behavior still exist after restarting Foglight Managment Server?

    I wonder if there are any errors in the Foglight log file that explain that.

    If this dashboard is not too important it may be easier to just delete and create a new one, I have never seen such a behavior.

    If this dashboard IS important than I recommend opening a support service request and have them look at this.

    For 3, can you please show me where in the Data tree you took this metric from?

    When I grab average response time per hour, I get a server name as a label
