Infrastructure Maps are a high-level view of the health of your account that let you cluster and explore the health of your nodes dynamically, helping you identify problematic hotspots in your infrastructure. The Infrastructure Map is the default page you will land on when visiting Panopta, unless you have a default dashboard set. Otherwise, it's available under the Monitoring navigation item.
Clusters are logical groupings of your infrastructure. By default, your instances will be clustered by instance group. Using the Clustering selector in the top right corner, you can cluster infrastructure using a number of options:
Diving is the ability to move up and down through the layers of your infrastructure, regardless of your clustering method. To dive into the next layer, simply click the name of a cluster. For instance, when using the default cluster method of by-instance group, you can click the name of any instance group to "dive" into it, viewing the groups within it, if any.
Each level you dive into, you can cluster and filter as needed, including mixing clustering types.
Filters allow you to control the available set of instances that are clustered in your Infrastructure Map. For instance, if you only care about exploring your prod instances, you can add a tag filter of prod, assuming they're tagged accordingly. Only instances with the the prod tag would then be shown - even when you dive down through your infrastructure.
Views are snapshots of your configured clustering and filtering settings - similar to a bookmark. Each view you create (using the Create View button) will be created as a new tab, allow you to quickly switch between frequently-used views.
