Object documentationDashboard for Alert Management Reporting


This dashboard shows the occurrence of alerts in your managed systems. The Alert Management (ALM) dashboard displays metrics such as the number and distribution of alerts, support messages, and the processing times of alerts. You can specify the data display period. The occurrence, distribution, and processing time of alerts tell you about the status and functioning of your managed systems.

You can call the ALM Dashboard from the work center Technical Monitoring, by choosing the Reporting button in the Alert Inbox area. You can display this function in the work center itself (Embedded) or in a (New Window).
