Customizable Dashboard

Idea ID 1641274

Customizable Dashboard

We are always missing a impressive dashboard which can be customizable according to the user needs. It should be builting within NNMi.

Eg: All Node down, Interface down, Customizable Interface utilization for top 10(Need to show only one critical to me) etc.

Dabshboar was one of the main competiting area whenever we go to customer. They always compare dashboard not all the fucntionlity.

Yes Exactly Rupesh !! , this is what most of the customer given feedback to us. Adding few more comments.

  • At-least we should be able to popup any of the tabs in current dashboards. This will allow us to use the dashboards in OMI as well.
  • Current live graph in NNMI is really very old. (the one which we open through performance )
  • Also Many customer ask a drill down functionality from the PIE charts on the main dashboards. (for example, it shows how many are critical, When we click on it nothing happens or it wont show which all are critical)
  • Its better if we have different styles available (especially for the interface graphs)

NNMi is a product which really have a lot of capabilities but its missing such little touch up which really matters.

Customizable dashboards are a must. Very often NNMi is used by different teams, each of them with different focus. Dashboards should address this by providing way to limit types of data and nodes that data is reported on.

The current fixed dashbord shows everything and cannot cotnrol anything. We have seen users wants to see only critical nodes/interface in dashboard for realtime monitoring on screens etc. we have better GUI exp with small vendors and monitoring tools. The dashboard itself makes them better product.

Hi, we also would like to see configurable dashboards but we are looking for technical dashboards to support the Network Operations Team.

Business Value dashboard is a nice solution for managers but not helpfull for network administrators. For us it is also not important that the dashboard looks nice, it is much more important that it displays technical content in a good way. A good example is cacti that shows technical data in a technical way

To avoid to much programming efforts, isn't it possible to export those data to an external Dashboard Tool? What about creating a Grafana Plugin that is using the NNM, OM ... Data as source to present them as Dashboard? If there would be a solution implemented Inside, than it has always to compete internally with Grafana, that is VERY customizable.

please consider adding some new display options for the dashboards for example, Live state , metrics gauges , live graphs based on scope or monitored objects.

I got feedback from NNM R&D earlier they are working on full HTML 5 NNM interface , so that would be easy to get customizing dasboards.
