Limited Availability

This feature is available in a limited release. If you are interested in enabling this functionality for your organization, contact your BigPanda account team.

The Monitoring Events Dashboard gives you a deep dive into how BigPanda interacts with your monitoring tools, including event volumes per monitoring source and hour. The dashboard highlights the single pane of glass that BigPanda enables by consolidating all monitoring into a single platform.

You can use the dashboard to find trends related to monitoring tools and determine if any changes need to be made to underperforming tools.

Events in BigPanda

Monitoring tools generate events that are sent to BigPanda, which are then deduplicated before being formed into alerts. The dashboard displays the number of events before deduplication in BigPanda.

To learn more about events in BigPanda, see the Events to Incidents Lifecycle documentation.
