Instance Summary Table

The Instance Summary Table widget is used for showing the current status and historical availability for a group of servers. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options. Also, nine other columns are available to add, which provide more categorization and availability statistics for each server.

Use case 

The Instance Summary Table widget is useful when:

  • You want to display the current status of a group of instances.

  • You want to display the historical availability and outage information of a group of instances.

Example 

Windows servers status and availability 

In this example, the widget displays the status and availability (7 days) of all Windows servers. The Outages: 24 hours data point is also enabled, which shows the number of incidents that occurred on the Windows instance. 

You can also hover your mouse to an incident to show the details. Selecting the Incident ID will redirect you to the incident's page.
