The Infrastructure Map is a high-level view of the health of your account that lets 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.


Clustering

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:

  • No Clustering: show all of your infrastructure in a flat group
  • Cluster by Tag: each tag you select will become its own cluster
  • Cluster by Instance Group: the default setting - each of your top-level instance groups will be used as a cluster, including all the instances recursively contained within it
  • Cluster by Cloud Region: if you're utilizing our native cloud connections with AWS or Azure, you can create clusters by their given regions
  • Cluster by Cloud Instance Type: if you're utilizing our native cloud connections with AWS or Azure, create clusters by specific instance types (EC2, RDS, etc.)

Diving

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.

Filtering

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 prod tag would then be shown - even when you dive down through your infrastructure.


Views

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.

To create a view, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Create View.
  1. Enter a name for the view. 
  1. Choose the options to enable:
    1. Default
    2. Viewable by teammates
  2. Click Save.
  3. Configure the new view by adding filters or choosing a clustering option.
  4. To save the view, click the Save icon.
