Creating Dashboards

BMC TrueSight Operations Management provides dashboards to create consolidated and customized views of your monitored IT environment. Dashboards are built from dashlet templates. Once you have selected the dashlet that corresponds to the type of view you wish to create, you can access a specific type of data and present it graphically.

Veritas NetBackup KM for PATROL monitors your Veritas NetBackup environment to ensure it runs efficiently 24 hours a day. The data is available through different dashlets to allow you to create a clear view of your Veritas NetBackup environment within a private or shared dashboard. Refer to the BMC TrueSight documentation to learn how to create dashboards.
