A Dashboard is a visual representation of data designed for quick analysis of the network traffic data and for informational awareness.

Dashboards consist of Widgets – objects with a graphical representation of specific data which can be added, edited, positioned, deleted or modified as you like. Sycope allows users to set up multiple Dashboards.

Dashboards can be combined into groups depending on the user's needs while a single Dashboard can belong to multiple groups.

Dashboards/Dashboard groups are created and edited in the menu [Configuration > Dashboards].



Use the Dashboard and Dashboard groups icons in the top menu to switch between table views (Dashboard view or Dashboard groups view).


When you enter this menu, you will see a table with default and/or previously created user Dashboards.

The table contains the following columns:
