The Dashboard

The Dashboard

The Dashboard section is the first area that pops up when a  user  logs into their account. It shows a broader view than the Site Overview provided for individual locations. It will show an aggregate of some of the familiar orange boxes from the Site Overview page. The left navigation panel will have a link to the dashboard again as well as the sites in the user's account that the user can click to reach that site's Site Overview page. Here is a break down of the boxes and the information they store:

  1. Bandwidth  - This is the daily throughput in Megabits per second averaged for all sites. Download throughput is shown as a darker orange line, while Upload throughput is represented by a lighter orange line.
  2. Locations  - This map displays the geographical location (as entered in the site information) of all sites.
  3. Sites Reachable  - The amount of sites that are currently reachable for this account.
  4. Average Latency  - The average latency across all sites in this account.
  5. Average Jitter  - Jitter is the difference between the lowest and 95th percentile latency measurements in the past 24 hours. 95 percentile means that the top 5% of latency measurements are ignored, so that infrequent spikes do not skew the result. This is the average jitter across all sites.
  6. Average Packet Loss  - This is the percentage of ping failures versus the total number of pings in the past day.
  7. Average MOS Rating  - This is the mean opinion score of all VoIP calls on network averaged across all sites.
  8. Account Warnings  - The Account Warnings display will show sites with abnormal behavior, such as connectivity problems, failovers, hardware issues, and network warnings.
  9. Blocked Attacks  - This will show attacks being blocked by all of the firewall locations for this account.
  10. Bandwidth Breakdown  - This will show the bandwidth usage of individual sites located within this account.
  11. Service Breakdown  - This display will show the top 10 most used services across the sites located within this account.
