Learn about Wavefront dashboards.

Wavefront offers new insights for your network of systems through the use of charts. While charts provide a window into your company’s data, dashboards offer you a way to prioritize and group those windows in a meaningful way. Within dashboards you use sections to further organize charts. By creating dashboards, you can quickly compare different data sets, alter time windows for all data sets, and save those windows for future use.

In addition, all charts in a dashboard share display preferences, variables, and can share events.

To view and manage dashboards, select Dashboards > All Dashboards.

All users can search and interact with dashboards.

Dashboard Types

Wavefront has two types of dashboards: system and user.

System dashboards are installed by Integrations and include:

Searching Dashboards

While some Wavefront instances can have hundreds of dashboards, typical Wavefront users use a smaller subset of dashboards each day. This makes the ability to quickly search for relevant dashboards vital. Wavefront offers many features to help you organize and search for dashboards.

Searching from a Dashboard

If you are viewing an existing dashboard and you want to navigate to a different dashboard, then you use the Search Dashboards field at the upper right of the task bar. The Search Dashboards field searches any string within a dashboard name or URL.
