Dashboard Overview

Dashboard Overview

The dashboard for DMS-Admin centralizes many features for system monitoring and log collection. When problems of any kind interfere with the data-collection processes that populate its gauges, they show question marks in addition to the best available data. In this case, check that your systems and network are configured and working correctly.

These are the dashboard gauges.

NEW IN CISCO DMS RELEASE 5.2.3 — The Failover Cluster gauge monitors your use, if any, of failover.


Note Sometimes, a monitoring gauge might leave out a value that you expect it to show. When this occurs, we mark any missing values with a placeholder symbol () to indicate which values we could not show.



Tip Until you install at least one license key, the DMS-Admin dashboard cannot retrieve data to populate its gauges.
