The Scoreboard Health widget displays color-coded health, risk, efficiency, and custom metrics scores for objects that you select.
How the Scoreboard Health Widget and Configuration Options Work
The icons for each object are color coded to give a quick indication of the state of the object. You can configure the widget to display the scores of common or specific metrics of the object. You can use the symptom state color code or you can define your criteria to color the images. If you configure the widget to show the metric for objects that do not have this metric, those objects have blue icons.
You can double-click an object icon to show the Object Detail page for the object. When you point to the icon, a tool tip shows the name of the object and the name of the metric.
You edit a Scoreboard Health widget after you add it to a dashboard. To configure the widget, click the pencil at the upper-right corner of the widget window. The widget can display metrics of the objects that you select when you edit the widget, or that you select on another widget. For example, you can configure the widget to show the CPU workload of an object that you select on the Topology Graph widget. To set a source widget that is on the same dashboard, you must use the Widget Interactions menu when you edit a dashboard. To set a source widget that is on another dashboard, you must use the Dashboard Navigation menu when you edit the source dashboard.
