A redesigned dashboard & server groups

November 16 Bullet_white By Derek Bullet_white Posted in Features Bullet_white Comments Comments

Answering “how is my cluster performing?” just got a lot easier. We’ve rolled out a redesigned account dashboard that makes filtering the noise in your server cluster a lot more efficient.

The dashboard

The updated account homepage lists each server and 3 key metrics:

  • Server load over the last minute
  • Memory usage
  • Disk usage

The sidebar shows any active alerts.

Server Groups

Create groups (ex: web servers) and place servers in those groups. These grouped servers are shown together on the account dashboard.

Timeframe selection

By default, the dashboard shows the most recent data across servers. You can also choose to display aggregated metrics across a longer period (up to the previous 7 days). We’ve worked hard to make toggling between different timeframes speedy so comparing data should be painless.

Background

Our previous dashboard had too much noise. It was difficult to tell where the emergencies were. We’ve found this update makes checking the status of our own cluster at Scout far more efficient.
