The main dashboard gives you a high-level overview of the state of your application and acts as a portal into various functionalities of the platform. From the main dashboard, you are able to immediately tell if something is wrong with your online service.
Polling: At the top right, you’ll see the “polling” toggle. Enabling polling will start getting services metrics from the associated AWS account at regular intervals of 30 minutes by default (this is configurable by the user from the app) to keep the system up to date with the current state and identify potential faults, policy violations, performance degradation, etc. Also, to generate proactive alerts.
Time period filters available on the main dashboard will let you monitor the state of the system along with any events such as faults or errors that might have occurred at a specific time interval. If no time period is selected, the default time period (current date and time) is automatically selected.
Total invocations displays the total Lambda function invocations for a specific time period that has been selected. Total invocation data is displayed graphically with a time-series graph.
Total errors/warnings show you the total errors/warnings occurred in your system over a specific time period that has been selected.
Cost total displays the total cost incurred by the associated AWS account over a specific time period that has been selected.
Billed duration displays the total time in seconds, minutes, or hours the associated AWS account has been subject to AWS billing over a specific time period.
General statistics includes the account-level activity trends, including executions, errors, warning events, and cloud costs during the selected time period (time range can be changed from the top right corner).
Onboarding checklist contains the checklist of activities new users would benefit from when starting with Dashbird (for example, shortcuts into inviting team members, configuring alerting policies and channels amongst other things).
Inventory shortcuts lets you quickly jump into the inventory service of different service-types. Inventory is a registry containing all of your cloud resources, centralising logs, metrics, executions, alerts and insights of a single resource into one view.
Errors tab contains the last 10 errors that occurred throughout your system. The main dashboard gives a quick overview of:
- Which resource the error belongs to
- Error count i.e. how many times the same error occurred for that resource
- Severity of the error i.e. critical or warning
- Time of occurrence of that error
- Error description i.e. Runtime error, Memory error, etc
For a detailed view and deep dive, go into the Events screen.
Alarms and Insights contains the 10 latest insights found while scanning your cloud infrastructure for over 100 Dashbird insight rules.
Top errored functions is the list of the 5 functions containing the most erroneous invocations, ordered by the number of errors.
Most active functions is the list of 5 functions being the most active in terms of invocation counts across your system.
