Dashboards provide real-time visibility into your organization’s Internet traffic. Multiple dashboards provide different views, so you can track Internet usage and quickly take action when you see anomalous trends or security threats. Each dashboard contains widgets that present data in interactive charts, so you can instantly jump from a chart to individual transactions.

Following is a sample dashboard:

You can view and edit your dashboards, depending on your role permission and scope. A dashboard or widget displays the message View Restricted when you do not have the appropriate permissions to view its content.

The portal provides predefined dashboards that you can customize.

You can do the following:

  • View another dashboard. Click the Dashboard tab to list the dashboards. The image below shows the list of predefined dashboards.
  • View the Weblog time, which appears at the bottom of every window. The Nanolog servers collect the logs of all users worldwide, and then consolidates and correlates them. The Weblog time displays the date and time of the logs that are being processed by the Nanolog servers.
  • By default, dashboards display data for the last 24 hours. You can choose a different time frame from the menu. The time frame is retained when you navigate to other dashboards.

    NOTE: The Bandwidth Control dashboard is the only dashboard that offers a a 30-day time frame.
  • Roll over a chart to isolate a segment and see more information.
  • Click a segment and select one of the following:
    • View Logs to see its associated logs. For example, if you spot an anomalous trend in the Security dashboard, click View Logs to locate suspicious transactions.

      NOTE: This option is not available for charts that display secure browsing class, data or status, because they use samples as their data units. See Viewing Web and Mobile Logs.
    • Analyze Chart to view the chart in the Analytics tab where you can interactively drill down. See Analyzing Traffic Using Insights.

A widget displays the top five items and groups everything else under Other. You can then click Show Details to see the items that were grouped under Other.

When you log out, the service remembers the last dashboard you viewed and displays it when you log back in.

TIP: Go to Administration > Settings > My Profile to enable the dashboards to automatically refresh every 15 minutes.
