Understanding status and colors

Objects in the AppStack Environment view are colored based on their current status, providing you a quick summary of your environment. Objects will be in one of the following states, represented by its icon's color and shape that corresponds to the following table:

Status Color Example

Statuses only become available for filtering when an object in your environment is in that state. For example, if no objects have a status of Down, the Down status will not be available when filtering.

Status reporting

Servers can only provide an Up or Down status. To check CPU, memory, or hardware health status, hover the mouse over the server icon to view the detailed tool-tip. The reported status for applications and LUNs is based on performance thresholds.

Understanding mixed icons

The AppStack Environment view offers a parent/child relationship. (Parents can be either servers or hosts.) This relationship is represented as a mixed icon. The parent is the larger of the two icons that is hosting the child. For example, the following illustration graphically shows that an application (child) is Down on a node (parent) that is Up.
