Host Map Widget

Host Map Widget

The host map widget graphs any metric across your hosts using the same visualization available from the main Host Map page:

Setup

Configuration

Configuration of the host map widget is similar to the main host map page:

  1. Type: Choose to display hosts or containers.
  2. Filter by: Choose the hosts or containers to display.
  3. Group by: Aggregate your hosts or containers by one or several tags.
  4. Fill by: Choose a metric to fill your host or container map elements.
  5. Size by (optional): Choose a metric to size your host or container map elements.
  6. Palette (optional): Choose a color palette.
  7. Values (optional): Define the min and max color palette fill values.

Note: Free text search is not available for the host map widget.

Options

Title

Display a custom title for your widget by activating the Show a Title check box:

Optionally define its size and alignment.
