Use the Enterprise Dashboard

Last update October 30, 2017

This section contains the following pages describing the functionality of the Enterprise Dashboard:

Open the Enterprise Dashboard

To open the Enterprise Dashboard from a web browser:

  1. Navigate to the directory where you installed the Enterprise Dashboard.
  2. The Enterprise Dashboard server must be started if it is not already running.  Navigate to the bin directory, and run EnterpriseDashboard.exe, or select Enterprise Dashboard Server from the Start, Programs menu.
  3. Enter http://localhost:1506/ in a web browser or select DevTest Enterprise Dashboard UI from the Start, Programs menu.
    If the Enterprise Dashboard is running on a remote computer, replace localhost with the name or IP address of that computer.
    The Enterprise Dashboard opens.

Enterprise Dashboard Main Window

The main window in the Enterprise Dashboard lets you view performance statistics about peak counts for Power Users, Functional Virtual Service Environments, Performance Virtual Service Environments and Workstations.

The Functional VSE, Performance VSE, and workstation data is displayed in real time.

The SV Power User data is displayed according to session data. It measures peak counts based on sessions that have finished (when the user logs out). It does not display counts according to users who may still be logged in as power users.

The Enterprise Dashboard also displays transaction and virtual service history for the current month and running registries.

Peak Usage Data

The peak usage data displayed at the top of the dashboard covers four usage areas: Completed Power User Sessions, Functional VSEs, Performance VSEs, and Workstations.

SV Power Users Tile

Click on the SV Power Users tile to see the following details: start time, end time, total number users.  This data counts only power users whose sessions have already ended. It does not show a real time report of currently logged users.  Data is updated every hour.

Performance VSEs tile

Click the Performance VSEs tile to see additional details: start time, end time, total VSEs.  This data is updated in real-time and shows current peak data for VSEs in performance mode.

Transactions

The Peak Counts section displays a graphical representation of the transactions executed in the current month.

DailyTransations

The Daily Transactions graph displays the total amount of transactions executed during each day in the current month.  The date range can be modified by setting the date ranges in the top left area of the window.


Performance VSE view

Click this toggle to switch on or off VSE performance mode data.

Virtual Services

Under the transaction graph there is a graphical representation of the daily count of utilization of virtual services for the current month.


Performance VSE view

Click this toggle to switch on or off VSE performance mode data.


Running Registries

  • Display Name
    The Display Name is a name that you assign when you configure the registry.
  • Name
    The URL of the registry.
  • Last Update
    The last date and time that Enterprise Dashboard received data from this registry.
  • Version
    The DevTest version for that registry.
  • Coordinators, Simulators, VSEs, Workstations, Agents, and Labs
    The number of each resource that is associated with the registry.

    Note: To view agents, you must start broker.exe.

  • DevTest Console URL
    The address of the landing page for DevTest Console, which provides links to DevTest Portal.
To display information about the database that the Enterprise Dashboard uses, hover over the database icon in the upper right corner of the panel.
 
The popup window displays the database URL, database type, database version, driver name, driver version, and user.

Enterprise Dashboard Registry Details Window

The Registry Details window in the Enterprise Dashboard lets you view details about registries. Click on a registry display name on the main page to bring up the registry details window.

Note: This window only displays data for registries running version 7.5 or later.

The top part of the window lists all this registry's coordinators, simulators, VSE servers, labs, Workstations, and agents that were running during the timeframe of the supplied filter.

To designate the timeframe to use in displaying metrics, use the drop-down fields at the upper left of the panel. The first drop-down field provides a list of standard timeframes. To be more specific, specify a start date and start time and end date and end time in the other drop-down fields. Click Refresh to refresh the display.

If the Enterprise Dashboard has been idle for some time, click Refresh  to refresh the data for each panel.

The bottom part of the window shows metrics for registries, VSE servers, coordinators, and simulators.

The Registry Metrics area of the panel shows the maximum number of workstations, simulators, coordinators, agents, and VSEs concurrently running in the designated time period.

The VSE Metrics area of the panel shows the number of transactions and the number of labs that were deployed for each VSE active during the designated time period.

The Coordinator Metrics area of the panel shows the number of tests that were started for each coordinator during the designated time period.

If you run a test suite and the Enterprise Dashboard "tests started" count is not what you expect, see the suite results section of DevTest Workstation. Check the results for each failed test. If any tests failed to stage, the tests started count does not include them.

The Simulator Metrics area of the panel shows the maximum number of virtual users active during the designated time period.

To return to the main window, click Home in the breadcrumbs in the top left corner of the page.

Enterprise Dashboard may sporadically display inadvertent stop and restart of components as network connectivity is lost between the registry and its underlying components. When a registry loses connectivity to an underlying component for a period of time, it is assumed that the component has shut down, so an “End Event” is generated and submitted to Enterprise Dashboard for that component.

Enterprise Dashboard Return on Investment Window

The ROI (Return on Investment) calculator allows you to set cost criteria and calculate potential savings from using Service Virtualization Enterprise Edition.

This can be found under the tools section of the dashboard (found on the top right section of the main toolbar), you will see a link to the ROI calculator.

 

 

The following criteria can be adjusted:

  • Developer and QA FTE’s
  • Defects found
  • HW/SW environments purchased
  • Revenue impact per day
  • Days saved to revenue realization

 

Each criteria comes with a tool tip that explains the underlying logic we use to calculate the savings.
