The Alerts tab provides a high level overview of the RightScale Alert System, which consists of Alerts and Alert Escalations. All of the alerts across all of your deployments will be displayed. To determine where an alert is being defined (ServerTemplate, Deployment, or Server level), click the Alert's name and check the "Defined by" value. Note: A similar Alerts tab is visible at the deployment level. Alerts are categorized into three different types:
Click the icon, to view an alert's error message. Click the "Show" link to view more detailed information about each alert that is triggered.Manage > Deployments > View Dashboard > Index > Alerts tab
The Deployments tab shows information about any active server instances.
The Monitoring tab lets you select any server from any of your deployments and display its monitoring data. By default, the "cpu-overview" graph is displayed which shows all the states (idle, wait, etc.) in a single graph using different colors. It's a useful graph for providing an overview of overall server activity. You'll notice that the graphs show the server's current (now) activity and are very small in size. To zoom in on a graph, select a different graph size (small or large). Note: Graphs will only appear on servers where monitoring is enabled. To enable monitoring, you will need to Set up collectd. To view other detailed graphs, you will need to navigate to the Monitoring tab of a particular server or deployment.
Cluster Monitoring provides a simple and efficient means to browse through monitoring data for Deployments consisting of many Servers. Customers with hundreds or even thousands of Servers in a Deployment will find this feature useful. You can specify a subset of Servers to Cluster Monitor in your Deployment based on the Server name, ServerTemplate name, or Tag. Select the Add Cluster Monitor action link in your Deployment's Monitoring tab to view Cluster Monitoring graph data in the Dashboard.
With your Cluster Monitor, you also have the option of viewing it as a Heat Map or Stacked Graph. You may add your Cluster Monitor Heat Map or Stacked Graph as a Widget to the Dashboard.Manage > Deployments > View Dashboard > Index > Monitoring tab
