The Web Server Template provides detailed dashboards and graphs to easily visualize your HTTP web servers. Here are some example use cases of the many helpful insights your Web Server Template will provide.
Views are saved shortcuts to a specific set of filters and search queries. Using views, the Web Server template can track server errors and alert you when they occur.
To set up alerting, we recommend attaching presence alerts to the "HTTP Server Error" view and absence alerts to the "HTTP 200" view to be alerted on excessive errors, or insufficient successful traffic. Learn more about setting up alerts in our alert guide.
Boards are collections of graphs. Using boards, you can track trends with response codes and understand how they fluctuate over time at a glance. Drill down using subplots to see which host or path is generating the most errors.
Screens are collections of customized dashboards that can display data in various forms. Using screens, you can see top 401 and 403 requests by IP address in the last hour, day, and week.
Screens are collections of customized dashboards that can display data in various forms. Using the web analytics screen, you can visualize your top referrers, user agents, and content as well as see week over week traffic trends.
