Network Status Chord Diagram

    What you are going to learn:

  • What is the Chord Diagram that is on the App home page
  • How to filter the agents and sessions

When you log into the Obkio App while you have Monitoring Agents and Network Monitoring Session configured, you will see the Network Status Chord Diagram.

This diagram will show you all the Agent Status details and the Network Monitoring Session Status details. Located outbound of the circle (called the nodes or endpoints), you will see every agent with their status color. Inside the circle (called the arcs or segments), you have the sessions with their status color.

By clicking on one Agent, you can quickly navigate to the selected agent's details page. Same thing applies for the network monitoring session detail page by click on the sessions.

The Chord Diagram Filters give users more flexibility on what they want to see displayed on the diagram. Hint: The most popular filter is the Show OK Agents.

Filter by Agents or Group of Agents
Filter by Agents or Group of Agents

You can select only some agents or groups of agents that you want to display on the diagram. This is often used to focus on a specific company division or customer. Also, some users decide to create an Agent Group called Chord Diagram and they associate only their most important agents to that group. They then filter on that group so that the diagram only focuses on their most important agents.

Filter by Session Severity
Filter by Session Severity

This filter will only show the sessions with a severity greater or equal to the selected severity. Agents with no sessions are removed from the diagram. This gives a dynamic diagram that will always change based on actual session status.

Show OK Agents filter
Show OK Agents filter

By default, the diagram will display all the agents with all their sessions and the filter 'Show OK Agents' will be enabled. By disabling this filter, the diagram will not display agents where all the sessions are OK (green or grey).
