Using AppStack as a troubleshooting tool is fairly straightforward. Simply navigate to the AppStack Environment view, and then click on an object to see what is related to that object. To investigate further, navigate to the Details page of the object or any related object.

For example, the illustration below displays all objects in the current environment. The application, MSSQLSERVER, is in a critical state, as indicated by its icon. To see what this application is related to, click the MSSQLSERVER icon.


To see objects related to an object, take the following steps:

  1. From the web console, navigate to the AppStack Environment view by clicking Home > Environment.
  2. Click any object, in this example, MSSQLSERVER.
  3. Once an object is selected, related objects will be highlighted by the fading of unrelated objects, as shown:


To hide the unrelated objects completely from view, take the following step:

  1. Once an object is selected, click Spotlight in the upper right-hand corner of the view.


To navigate to the details page of an object for further investigation:

  1. Click the icon of the selected object to the left of the doughnut chart, or double-click the larger icon in the main view.
  2. From the details page, you can now investigate the cause for the Critical status.
