The OpenStack Compute Infrastructure dashboard displays top level objects that show the correlation between the environment and the infrastructure components of that type. This top level view provides you with enough information to determine if there is sufficient capacity for users to provision virtual machines.

Table 1. OpenStack Compute Infrastructure Dashboard Widgets
Widget Description
Compute Inventory Displays a high level view of the components in the compute infrastructure. Each component is represented by a box. Select an object to view related components in the dashboard.

Hover over an object to display capacity-related details.

Compute Infrastructure Displays related components of the object selected in the Compute Inventory widget.

Hover over an object to view health and capacity related details.

To display an extended view that includes other connected objects, right-click the object, select Expand Node, and select the objects you want to include in the expanded view.

Compute Resource Utilization Displays a heatmap of the workloads of the different objects registered with OpenStack. The workloads are broken down by cluster. A threshold is set at 80% of the workload. The heatmap remains green and healthy as long as the workload remains below 80% of the capacity. You can view heatmaps for the cluster CPU, ESXi Host CPU, cluster memory, and ESXi Host memory workloads, and Non-ESXi Host memory usage by selecting the required option from the Configurations drop-down menu.
Compute Alerts Displays alerts for selected objects. Also displays risk-based alerts that are opened if the infrastructure is approaching capacity. Risk alerts are opened when capacity has reached a threshold of 85%, 90% and 95%.
