Procedure

  1. Step 1 Open a browser and sign in to Aternity.
  2. Step 2 Use the search box in the top bar to quickly find a particular device.

    You can enter a device hostname or IP address or enter the name of a dashboard.

    Note

    You can use spaces and other alphanumeric characters. This search is not case sensitive, so it will search for the text in any combination of upper and lower case characters. The search supports email addresses and @. The search does not support other wild cards (like *) or other forms of logic (and/or).

  3. Step 3 Select Build Your Own and then select My Workspace.
  4. Step 4 Select Add card to start building your own dashboard with the required content.
    You can add as many widgets (a.k.a cards) as you need.
    Start building your own troubleshoot dashboard
    1. a Select the visualization chart.

      Different types of chart support different number of measurements. For example, Bar Chart or Pie Chart allow selecting one measurement only. However, the Multi-Line or Table charts allow selecting multiple measurements. Browse with your mouse between different charts to see how many measurements you can select in each case. Decide what kind of visualization is the best for your card.

      Select the chart

      You can delete an unnecessary measurement any time by selecting the minus button.

    2. b Select the data source. The list of available data sources varies depending on the chart type you selected.
      Data Source Description
      Application Resources

      Use the Application Resources data source to troubleshoot managed application's resource usage (PRC), which could slow down a device.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the APPLICATION_RESOURCES_HOURLY REST API. To read about dimensions and measures definitions, use the REST API documentation. (Learn more)

      Applications

      Use the Applications data source to troubleshoot any application's performance (including discovered applications with no activities defined).

      You can also view and analyze this data using the APPLICATIONS_RAW REST API. To read about dimensions and measures definitions, use the REST API documentation. Learn more

      Business Activities

      For advanced analysis data for managed applications which includes activities and their response times, use the Business Activities data source.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the BUSINESS_ACTIVITIES_RAW REST API. To read about dimensions and measures definitions, use the REST API documentation. Learn more

      CPU & Memory

      Use the CPU & Memory data source to view CPU and memory utilization for the selected device for every 2-min time slot during the defined timeframe.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the RAW_DATA_CPU_MEMORY REST API. Learn more

      Custom Data

      Use the Custom Data data source to see trends of your custom performance metrics.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the CUSTOM_DATA_RAW REST API (learn more), as well as CUSTOM_DATA_HOURLY and CUSTOM_DATA_DAILY (learn more), or CUSTOM_DATA_DAILY_ANONYMIZED (learn more).

      Device Health

      Use the Device Health data source to troubleshoot individual health events for that device. Analyze for patterns with specific types of health events to find correlations with attributes like the device model, RAM, location, and disk type.

      For example, see if there is a correlation between the number of health events and the number of CPU cores and the memory size of a device.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the REST APIs DEVICE_HEALTH_RAW (Learn more) or DEVICE_HEALTH_DAILY_ANONYMIZED (Learn more).

      Disk IO

      Use the Disk IO data source to troubleshoot the read/write capabilities of the disk on the selected device for every 2-min time slot during the defined timeframe.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the RAW_DATA_IO REST API (learn more).

      Max CPU Core

      Use the Max CPU Core data source to troubleshoot the individual CPU core processor with the highest percentage usage for the selected device for every 2-min time slot during the defined timeframe.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the RAW_DATA_MAX_CPU_CORE_UTILIZATION REST API (learn more).

      Network Stats

      Use the Network Stats data source to troubleshoot the network of a device. For example, check the signal strength of a device for every 2-min time slot during the defined timeframe and check the theory if signal strength depends on the cellular/WiFi carrier to which the device is connected.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the RAW_DATA_WIFI_NETWORK or RAW_DATA_MOBILE_NETWORK REST API (learn more)

      Remote Display Latency

      Use the Remote Display Latency data source to troubleshoot the delays caused by remote display latency in virtualized environments. Investigate correlations between attributes related to latency.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the REST APIs REMOTE_DISPLAY_LATENCY_RAW (Learn more), REMOTE_DISPLAY_LATENCY_HOURLY (Learn more), or REMOTE_DISPLAY_LATENCY_DAILY (Learn more) REST APIs.

      Top Processes

      Use the Top Processes data source to troubleshoot a desktop. View the resource usage of the top processes for a single device, along with application, user, and device details.

      Note

      The Agent for End User Devices reports a device's highest resource consumers (top processes) only if one of the HRC measurements exceeds its predefined threshold. Not every process is being recorded, only those that breach the threshold. For example, if the CPU usage threshold is 50% (default) and the total CPU usage for all the processes on the device is at 80%, this API will return the five top processes which consume the most CPU.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the RAW_DATA_TOP_PROCESSES REST API (learn more).

      WiFi Network

      Use the WiFi Network data source to troubleshoot the WiFi network of a device. For example, check the signal strength of a device for every 2-min time slot during the defined timeframe and check the theory if signal strength depends on the WiFi carrier to which the device is connected.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the RAW_DATA_WIFI_NETWORK REST API (learn more)

      Windows Machine Boots

      Use the Windows Machine Boots database to troubleshoot the boot times of the device within the selected timeframe: total boot duration, machine boot times, or user logon boot times. View performance of operating system in terms of boot times. A slow startup directly contributes to lower productivity. View the evolution of the boot performance over a period of time; in other words, see if the boot time is improving or worsening.

      You can also view and analyze this data using the WINDOWS_MACHINE_BOOTS REST API (learn more).

    3. c Select the measurement available for that data source.

      For example, in the CPU and Memory data source, you can select physical memory utilization for troubleshooting. For the WiFi Network data source, you can troubleshoot noise levels.

      For some charts, you can add multiple measurements by selecting the plus button and adding more rows for more measurements. For example, for the Bar chart, select the desired measurement. For the Table chart, add one or more measurements for analysis.
      Depending on a chart, select one or more measurements for your analysis

      To delete a measurement, select the minus button next to the Measurement drop-down.

    4. d Filter content if necessary.

    5. e Enter the title for that card.
    6. f Save the card.

      For any device you select for troubleshooting later, you will be able to view the predefined in this workspace data. You can edit the dashboard any time, add or remove widgets, change time period, and more.

  5. Step 5 Add more cards and define the content for each card.

    You can also copy cards from other tabs.

  6. Step 6 (Optional) Copy card(s) from other tabs:
    1. a Select the card (widget) you want to copy to your workspace.
    2. b Right-click on the card title.
    3. c On the My Workspace, select the button Paste card to paste the copied widget.

      All changes are automatically saved.

  7. Step 7 Edit the dashboard layout.
    1. a Select the number of columns to display on the screen.

      The size of a widget automatically changes depending on how many of them you want to add to this screen.

    2. b Adjust rows height by selecting the size from the drop-down menu.

      The change applies to all rows.

    3. c Drag cards using the mouse to change their place on the screen.
    4. d Delete card any time by selecting Delete card at the right top corner of a card.
      Edit the dashboard layout
