The NSX Dashboard provides visibility into the overall health of NSX components in one central view. NSX dashboard displays status of different NSX components such as NSX Manager, controllers, logical switches, host preparation, service deployment, backup as well as edge notifications.


  1. Log in to the vSphere Web Client.
  2. Click Networking & Security, and then click Dashboard. The Dashboard page is displayed.

  3. In a Cross-vCenter NSX environment, select the NSX Manager with primary role or secondary role.

    Dashboard provides the following information:

    • System Overview – NSX Manager Status and NSX Controller Status

    • Firewall Publish Status

    • Host Preparation Status

    • Logical Switch Status

    • Service Deployment Status

    • Backup Status

    • Edge Notifications


For example, the NSX Manager status displays component status for database service, message bus service, and replicator service along with percentage of disk usage.
