Introduction

In addition to the previous knowledge base article (Health Grid Dashboard (Basic)) we would like to provide you with one example how “sophisticated” the Health Grid could look like.

Example

In this Example we would like to create one Grid in which couples of performance indicators are depicted. So at the end of the day we will end up with a "performance health grid dashboard".

Configuration

To do this, open Live Monitor, then switch to the Health Grid tab and click on the Configure columns and thresholds at the bottom of the screen.

 

 

Un-check the Domino Audit and Show Domino Tasks check-boxes and remove manually in addition the Mail columns. So that only the main column called Server remains.

 

Add – Disk performance

Select the Domino Statistic Sensor, select the statistic Platform.LogicalDisk.1.AvgQueueLen and drag&drop it down to the columns. Depending on your Disk structure add further AvgQueueLength  (example: Platform.LogicalDisk.2.AvgQueueLen)

 

 

Create a Category and assign the Disk statistics to a category called Disk.

Use shorter column names by simply renaming them.

 

Add – Transactions

Select the Domino Statistic Sensor, select the following statistics and them to a category called Transaction.

Server.Users
Server.Users.Peak
Server.Trans.PerMinute
Server.Trans.PerMinute.Peak

Use shorter column names by simply renaming them.

 

 

Add – FullText Index / NameLookup

Select the Domino Statistic Sensor, select the following statistics and them to a category called FT / NameLookup.

Update.PendingList
Database.NAMELookupCacheMaxSize
Database.NAMELookupCachePool.Used

Use shorter column names by simply renaming them.

 

 

Add – BufferPool

Select the Domino Statistic Sensor, select the following statistics and them to a category called Buffer Pool.

Database.Database.BufferPool.Maximum.Megabytes
Database.Database.BufferPool.Peak.Megabytes

Use shorter column names by simply renaming them.

 

 

Add – DbCache

Select the Domino Statistic Sensor, select the following statistics and them to a category called DbCache.

Database.DbCache.InitialDbopens
Database.DbCache.OvercrowdingRejections

 Use shorter column names by simply renaming them.

 

 

Click NEXT

Make sure that you set for some of the statistics the following parameter so that no Warning or Threshold Icon appear in case statistical information could not be found for some reasons.

 

Click Finish.

 

Conclusion

The adjusted Health Grid Dashboard looks now similar as depicted in the following picture.

 

You see now in just one dashboard what Cache settings you likely need to adjust as well how your server is overall performing. (e.g. very high Update.PendingList is a indicator of a poor domino performance)
