What's really going on?

Server monitoring is easier with DevOps dashboards. Create multiple views
to be completely customised with different metrics, layouts and widgets.

Server monitoring graph widget

Graphing Widget

Graph anything against anything and watch how things change over time. Build an understanding of what's normal… so you know when things aren't as normal.

Server monitoring elastic widget

Elastic Graphs Widget

Plot all the metrics for devices or services matching a search term. This means we'll automagically display new devices and / or remove old ones for you. You're welcome.

Server monitoring alerts widget

Alerts tend to need fixing - don't loose track of them. Our alerts widget allows you to see aggregated alerts for devices, groups or your entire infrastructure.

Response time widget
