The SolarWinds Orion Web Console gives you access to dashboards with resources (sometimes referred to as widgets) that use charts and tables to visually convey current and historic storage data,  using visually impactful charts and tables.

File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/SRM/Use_SRM_resources/callout2.png The "handle" can be used to drag-and-drop the resource around the page.

You can configure the default resources on the Storage Summary, Performance Dashboard, and Capacity Dashboard. Select from over 60 resources specifically provided for SRM to create a personalized dashboard. 

The Getting Started Monitoring File Storage for EMC VNX Arrays resource is unique in that it does not show data, but enables you to quickly add storage devices to be monitored. 

Add a resource to a view

You can easily customize a dashboard or view by adding additional resources.

Resources are referred to as widgets in this view.

You can have multiple copies of the same widget on a page if you have edited them to show different information. Use the Title and subtitle settings to differentiate them.

  1. From the view to which you want to add the resource, click the Customize Page icon in the upper left.
  2. Click Add Widgets in the upper right corner. 
    The Add Widgets view is displayed.


    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/SRM/Use_SRM_resources/callout1.png Select how you want to group the widgets. This can be by Type, by Feature or Classic.
    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/SRM/Use_SRM_resources/callout2.png Select the widget group from the resulting list.
    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/SRM/Use_SRM_resources/callout3.png Drag the required widget...
    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/SRM/Use_SRM_resources/callout4.png ... to where you want it to appear. This can be between existing resources.


  3. Add further widgets as required.
  4. Click Done Adding Widgets.
  5. The Customize Page view is displayed.
  6. Click Done Editing.
