Category Dashboard

The Category Dashboard showing aggregated health statistics for its member devices.

This dashboard looks and functions exactly like the Devices dashboard, but displays individual devices within a particular category instead of a list of device groups. The dashboard can be accessed by clicking on a category name anywhere in OmniCenter. Individual users can specify in the user preferences whether they would like the devices in the tables sorted alphabetically or by number of problems (with the most severe and greatest number of problems filtering to the top).

The category dashboard also contains several tabs offering additional information:

Overview
Same as the Devices dashboard, but shows the individual devices within the respective category.

Trends
The “Trends” tab seeks to identify devices in categories that are chronically problematic or consistently optimal performers. Includes a 12-month rolling view of health rate-of-change and total time-in-state. Categories that have more than 98% of their devices maintain an OK state for the month are considered optimal. Categories that have less than 98% of their devices maintain an OK state are considered degraded. Categories that have more than 95% of their devices in a non-OK state are considered chronic.

This Month
Charts host, service and threshold check trends for the current month.
