Applications Manager monitors over 50 applications and servers out-of-the-box and tracks a variety of performance indicators for each application or server monitored. In a typical IT environment however, there are certain servers and metrics that are more business critical than others. Therefore, you might want to provide more importance to those servers and their metrics. Dashboards are an easy way to put together such business-critical applications and view their performance and alerts at one place.
Applications Manager provides 4 dashboards by default - default dashboard, business view, Availability and Qos Worldwide. In addition, you can create custom dashboards such as ones that capture the status of all web applications deployed in a Tomcat server or status view of all databases and so on.
