Configuring the Service Level Dashboard Part V

1 minute read

After you create your monitors and distributed applications, you must take some additional steps to configure the Service Level Dashboard group and service level goal properties. Discovery finds all the objects that are associated with a distributed application. The current setting of these attributes is displayed in the Service Level Dashboard Attributes view in the Operations Console. This view lists the distributed applications that can be shown on the Service Level Dashboard, their Dashboard group, and their current service level goals.
