This Dashboard Server release covers multiple features that have been highly requested by the community. Prioritizing this user feedback, we’ve added some exciting new visualizations, features and enhancements.

Key highlights

What's new in SquaredUp 5.6

New visualization: Status Tree View

The first new visualization we’ve introduced is the Tree View tile. 

The Tree View tile lets you see the hierarchy and health status of your SCOM objects at a glance. 

You are now able to take quick actions like drilling down with one click directly to the component that's causing a problem. 

This is especially useful when you need clarity during root cause analysis. The tile can be scoped to any SCOM object and will display all its children. Additional display options allow you to filter on health states and choose the appropriate tree depth for your use case.

New visualization: Status Sunburst tile

The second new visualization is the Sunburst tile. 

The Sunburst tile allows you visualize your SCOM objects in a unique way—offering a visual representation of both the status of and the relationships between objects. 

Here's a quick walkthrough of how you might use it. Start by taking a quick glance at the inner circle of the Sunburst, which represents the highest-level views of your environment. Then work your way out to the outermost circle that represents the lowest level component that could be causing the problem. 

Spinning the Sunburst with your mouse gives you a clear view of all the labels regardless of their orientation, and the additional display options allow you to customize the look and feel of the tile.

EAM-X and the Sunburst tile

When paired with EAM-X, the Sunburst tile enables you to explore all your single pane of glass objects from our SquaredUp observability portal plugins. It is easy to navigate, and you can drilldown with a single click for root cause analysis.

Status and Monitor tile enhancements

One of the most popular tiles in SquaredUp is the Status tile. The status tile now supports TOP N so you can limit the number of objects that are displayed, offering you more focus and ensuring your dashboards look consistent. 

We have also added the ability to wrap the labels so you can further optimize the display of this critical tile.

The SCOM Monitor tile now also benefits from the TOP N functionality, as well as the ability to sort by health states.

Many more enhancements
