The Traceroute dashlet displays traceroute information for the selected device or VM platform.
The Traceroute dashlet is only applicable for devices and VM platforms. It is not applicable to other data sources (e.g. Views, components, services etc).
To add a Traceroute dashlet to a custom dashboard:
- Navigate to the custom dashboard for which you want to create the dashlet, or create a new dashboard.
- Click Add Dashlet. In the Select Dashlet Type form, select Traceroute and click Next.
- The Create Dashlet form will slide in on the right. Enter a name for your dashlet in the Name field.
- You can then choose the source of the data to be displayed in the dashlet. Note, the Traceroute dashlet can only display data where the source is a device or VM platform.
- If you want this dashlet to source its data from the context of its parent dashboard, select Dashboard. You can see the context of the parent dashboard in the Dashboard Context field at the top of the form.
- If you want this dashlet to source its data from another dashlet in this current dashboard, select Dashlet.
- If you want this dashlet to source its data from a specific device/VM platform on your network, select Fixed Object. You can then click Browse to an object to search for the device/VM platform in Explorer, or drag into the box your desired device/VM platform in from another browser window.
- Choose whether you want to hide the title of the dashlet in the Hide Title Bar field. If selected, the dashlet's Overflow Menu will also be hidden, but in the Promote Menu Options field you can then choose if you want to display the options in the dashlet's Overflow Menu in the overall dashboard's Overflow Menu.
- Choose whether you want the dashlet to automatically refresh in the Auto Refresh field.
- In the Show View Hierarchy field, choose whether you want the dashlet to display the Subviews within the selected View, or if you want the dashlet to instead display all of the devices and services within the selected View and its Subviews. This option can also be turned on and off in the dashlet itself.
- Specify the time and date range over for which the traceroute data will be displayed in the Chart Date Range field.
- Click Done in the top right of the form, otherwise click Cancel.
