Understanding layouts

Table of contents
No headers

A Layout is a user-defined filter (view-limitation), along with settings, that can be saved and recalled later within the AppStack Environment view. User-defined layouts can be used to tailor the AppStack Environment view to specific objects of interest. A default layout is provided and contains all objects visible in the AppStack Environment that is currently being monitored. The default layout cannot be modified.

New layouts are created by first filtering your environment, and then saving the changes via the Save As New Layout action in the Layout menu.

For example, to create a Layout where only IIS objects in the AppStack Environment view are shown, add the IIS filter property, apply the filter, and then save it as a new layout, naming the layout appropriately.


Once saved, the layout is added to the drop down menu, allowing you to easily navigate to that layout with its defined filter and settings. The dot to the left of the name of the layout in the menu represents the layout currently in use, as shown:
