v2.9 brings many new major features and upgrades into vScope. New widgets, improved filter functionality, re-designed VSCOPE TRACKER emails – everything built to give you valuable insights into your IT.
Better overview with new Dashboard Widgets
In vScope v2.9, new Dashboard widgets have been included to give you a quicker overview of your datacenter.
Top 5 Widgets
Curious about the largest VMs, fastest growing databases or the longest user sessions in your datacenter? The TOP 5 WIDGETS is your way to list the top elements of a table built in TABLE EXPLORER. With the trend triangles you will be able to identify how the specific resource tends to change and hovering a widget will also show you more information about the specific top list.
Define your own TOP 5 WIDGETS by sorting a table on a specific column and click “Add Top 5 widget to Dashboard“.
Notice how the columns are mapped in the widget:
Tracker case widgets
The new TRACKER CASE WIDGETS are built to be displayed on public monitors in your office space and give you and your colleagues insights about the compliance of your datacenter. The TRACKER CASE WIDGETS come in two different versions:
SINGLE TRACKER CASE
Adding a SINGLE TRACKER CASE WIDGET to your dashboard will give quick information about the status of any selected Tracker case in order for you to better keep up with the status of your IT. Widgets are colored green as long as the case is not opened but will turn into given severity color whenever it’s opened.
Hovering an open SINGLE TRACKER CASE WIDGET gives you a glimpse of the items in the Tracker case to help you to faster get going with resolving the case.
The new TRACKER REPORT WIDGETS give you information about your Tracker health has changed since last Discovery. Overview how many cases that has been opened or which cases you’re making progress directly from your personal Dashboard
Sort widgets with drag and drop
The new version of vScope brings drag-and-drop functionality into the Dashboard. Now you can sort widgets any way you want by just clicking and dragging the widget into the right position.
