Hello all. I am pleased to provide the latest release of my Foglight Database Expansion Pack for general use. Any customer (current or future) is encouraged to install this pack into their Foglight deployment in order to take advantage of the dashboard and reports it provides. If anyone has any comments, questions, concerns, or ideas for future dashboards, please post below!
Current version: 5.1.1 (minor update with customer specific enhancement to Enterprise Always On Dashboard) <CLICK FILE BELOW TO DOWNLOAD>
* I've found an issue with running the pack on a version 5.7.1 Foglight Management Server. I have not yet been able to diagnose and fix the issue, so those running that version will currently be unable to use the SQL Server dashboards. The Oracle dashboards and all of the reports seem to work fine on 5.7.1. Those who are on 5.7.1 that would like to use the expansion pack will need to upgrade their Foglight Management Server to 5.7.5, or wait until I have a chance to fix the problem. No ETA at the moment.
** Disclaimer ** This custom cartridge will only fully function against Foglight version 5.6.4 w/ the SQL Server and Oracle 5.6.4 cartridges (and higher). Installing this custom cartridge to a prior version of Foglight may yield errors.
Attached you will find the current release of my "Database Expansion Pack". The goal of this custom cartridge, is to showcase the wide range of possibilies that Foglight's custom tooling can provide our customers. I hope that the dashboards and reports included in this pack, will serve as added motivation for all of our customers to extend upon Foglight's out of the box capabilities, and make the solution their own.
This pack should be considered beta. I have tested it's functionality to the extent that I am able, and therefore cannot make any guarantee's that there will not be issues. As issues are reported I will do by best to address them.
Currently included in the pack are the following dashboards/reports:
In the Administration -> Cartridges -> Cartridge Inventory dashboard, press the "Install Cartridge" button. Point to the downloaded cartridge file, and click the "Install Cartridge" button. Once loaded, you should see the "DB Expansion Pack" module in the left hand navigation tray (you may need to refresh the browser for it to show up). You can expand this module and select the dashboards or reports to view.
I'm interested in any and all feedback!
Thank you! Handy features you have in this dashboard. Just about everything I would build in a dashboard!
Is it possible to add a database drop down feature to allow the user to select a database (server) more easily than going through the "Page Inputs" -> "General" section? Maybe the ability for the end-user that has only limited access, to select from THEIR selection of databases.
