Creating a Dashboard

When you create a dashboard, you specify a name and optionally a duration.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Select Charts > New Dashboard.
    • Select Charts > Manage Dashboards and click Create Dashboard.
    • Save a chart to a new dashboard.
  2. Specify a name and optionally a duration.
    Conventional dashboard names follow the patterns given by one of the following Java regular expressions:
    Pattern.compile("^(.+):(\\d):" + STATUS_VIEW_SUFFIX + "$");
    Pattern.compile("^(.+):" + STATUS_VIEW_SUFFIX + "$");
    Examples of expected names are: HOST:STATUS_VIEW, MGMT:STATUS_VIEW, or HDFS:5:STATUS_VIEW. If the dashboard name does not match the expected pattern, a warning will be displayed in the server log.
  3. Click Create Dashboard.
