Every screen in Uptrends Infra is a dashboard, with tiles that show your data in a particular way. The top menu lets you access your dashboards, and you can interact with the tiles to navigate through your data and change the configuration of your dashboards if you want.
Each time you register an agent on a server, a new device automatically shows up in the device list in your account, so we can start monitoring that server right away. You can do the same thing for each server you want to monitor, but typically you can have one agent monitoring multiple devices.
The actual things we monitor on those devices are called sensors. For a server device, we will create default sensors for processor time (CPU usage), available memory, free disk space and network usage, but you can remove those and add other ones if you want.
Your account comes with many different dashboards, right out of the box. These dashboards offer different views on your data, and cater to how you want to look at your infrastructure's performance data, whether it's for quick inspection or deep, interactive analysis.
Each dashboard is also suitable for continuous monitoring, allowing your Operations department to have up-to-date information on their wall display. We encourage you to browse through the different dashboards in your account:
Your account should already contain default Alert definition settings, but you can adjust those or create additional alert definitions.
