Configuring a Dashboard

Dashboards, serving as custom monitoring platforms, allow you to view metrics.

This section describes how to configure a dashboard for GeminiDB Redis.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. In the service list, click Cloud Eye to go to the Cloud Eye console.
  3. Create a monitoring dashboard.

    1. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Dashboards. On the displayed page, click Create Dashboard.
      Figure 1 Creating a dashboard
    2. In the displayed Create Dashboard dialog box, set required parameters.
      Figure 2 Configuring parameters
      Table 1 Parameter description




      Dashboard name. The name can include a maximum of 128 characters. Only letters, digits, hyphens (-), and underscores (_) are allowed.

      Enterprise Project

      If you associate a monitoring dashboard with an enterprise project, only users who have the permissions of the enterprise project can manage the monitoring dashboard.


      The enterprise project feature is available only in some regions.

    3. Click OK.

  4. Add a graph to the monitoring dashboard.

    After a dashboard is created, you can add graphs to monitor your GeminiDB Redis instances.

    1. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Dashboard. Locate the dashboard that you want to add a graph to, and click Add Graph.

    2. On the Add Graph page, select a line chart or bar chart.
      • A curve chart reflects changes and peak values of a metric over time.
      • A bar chart reflects metric data of top-ranked resources of the same type, helping you to understand upper and lower limits of a metric.
    3. At the Monitoring Item Configuration area, configure required parameters by referring to Table 2.

      Metric Display

      • One graph for a single metric: One or more graphs can be generated, and all monitoring items in each graph represent the same metric.
      • One graph for multiple metrics: One graph is generated for multiple metrics, and monitoring items can represent different metrics.

      Monitoring Scope

      Specify resources and metrics.

      Graph Name

      Specifies the title of the graph to be added. The name can contain a maximum of 128 characters. Only letters, digits, underscores (_), and hyphens (-) are allowed.

      Example: CPU usage


      Configure a threshold to generate an auxiliary line. Data points higher than the line are highlighted in red.

      Legend Name

      The legend name is displayed on the line in a monitoring graph and can be changed.

      If you do not configure the legend name, it is displayed in the following format by default: monitored object (resource type) - metric: monitored data.

      When you add a graph, select One graph for a single metric. Then a graph is generated for each metric, making it easy for you to view and analyze monitored data. If you need multiple metrics, add monitoring graphs.

    4. On the selected dashboard, view metric trends on the added graph.
