Use Dashboards

Use Built-in Dashboards

You can easily access these built-in dashboards in the Fusion UI:

  • default.json – The Fusion Logs dashboard is the default dashboard.

    You can modify the default dashboard to suit your needs. Each user can also choose a different dashboard as a browser default (for a specific browser). The Fusion Logs dashboard is similar to the Fusion Search Logs dashboard. Both access the logs collection. The layout and panels present differ slightly. The Fusion Search Logs dashboard sends queries to Solr (/api/apollo/solr). The Fusion Logs dashboard sends queries to a Fusion query pipeline (/api/apollo/query-pipelines/_system/collections/), and it specifies the global query parameter &df=message_t (use the field message_t as the default field).

    To open the default dashboard, click Analytics on the Fusion Launcher. With any dashboard open, click Goto saved default Goto saved default.

  • blank.json – An entirely blank dashboard. Open this dashboard and the next three in this list from links in the default dashboard.

  • lucidworks-metrics.json – The Fusion Metrics dashboard displays key Fusion metrics from the Fusion collection system_metrics.

  • lucidworks-searchanalytics.json – The Fusion Search Analytics dashboard displays search analytics derived from collection logs.

  • lucidworks-signals.json – The Fusion Signals dashboard is a type of time-series dashboard that you can use to monitor signals collections. It uses the signal timestamp as the time field.
