General Dashboard Tasks

The dashboard consists of the following user interface elements:

Tabs

Tabs provide a container for widgets. Customize the dashboard by adding or modifying tabs and widgets, as needed. The dashboard can support up to 10 tabs. Each tab on the dashboard can hold up to 20 widgets.

The dashboard comes with a predefined tab called Summary. It is not possible to delete this tab but you can rename it, change its layout, and add or remove widgets from it.

Task

Details

Add a tab

Click the plus icon () on the upper left of the dashboard. In the New Tab window that appears, you can type the tab title, choose a layout, and choose whether to enable auto-fit.

Edit a tab

Click Configuration. In the Configuration window that appears, you can edit the settings of the tab as necessary.

Move a tab

Use drag-and-drop to move the tab to the front of or behind another tab.

Delete a tab

Click the delete icon () next to the tab title. Deleting a tab also deletes all the widgets in the tab.

Widgets

Widgets represent the core components of the dashboard. Widgets contain visual charts and graphs that track threats and associate them with log statistics aggregated from one or several gateways. The dashboard uses a widget framework that allows you to select how widgets display information.

Task

Details

Add a widget

Open a tab and then click Add Widget at the upper right corner of the tab. On the Add Widget screen that appears, select the widgets to add.

You can view the available widgets in either Detailed View or Summary View.

Refresh widget data

TMWS refreshes widget data every two minutes. To refresh immediately, click the refresh icon () at the upper right corner of the widget.

Change default widget settings

Select from the drop-down list at the top of a widget to change the time period, chart type, and Top "x" value as necessary.

Click the pie chart or bar chart icon, if provided, at the upper right corner of a widget to change how the data displays.

Work with widget data

Move the pointer over a graph to view additional details.

For the widgets that provide the pie chart view, click the legend at the bottom of the widget to filter the information to display.

On some widgets such as Top Malware and Top Botnets, click a data point on a widget, and then select a filter to investigate activity related to that filter or select View Logs to investigate activities related to that log type. This opens the corresponding log screen under Logs & Reports with details about the particular item.

Move a widget

Use drag-and-drop to move a widget to a different location within the tab.

Resize a widget

Point the cursor to the right edge of the widget. When you see a thick vertical line and an arrow (as shown in the following image), hold and then move the cursor to the left or right as necessary.



Only widgets on multi-column tabs can be resized.

Delete a widget

Click the delete icon (). This task removes the widget from the tab that contains it, but not from the other tabs that contain it or from the widget list on the Add Widget screen.
