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.

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. 

  1. From the view to which you want to add the resource, click Customize Page.

  4. Use the icons to the right of the column to move the resource, and click Done.
  5. You can have multiple copies of the same resource on a page if you have edited them to show different information. Use the Title and subtitle settings to differentiate them.
