Getting Started with Insight

After OnCommand Insight has been installed and properly licensed, there are a number of tasks you should do to begin preparing your environment to showcase the data that is important to you.

Some of the tasks performed in a typical environment include the following:

  1. Annotating your assets to prepare them for querying and reporting. Useful initial annotations typically include data Center, Tier, and Service Level.
  2. Creating queries to show important data and help troubleshooting
  3. Assigning applications and business entities to assets
  4. Creating performance policies and alerts for violations against those policies
  5. Creating custom dashboards to highlight data according to need or user role
