Updated dashboards

Below is a selection of updated dashboards in IOTA v3.0.0 with a short description. To see all new dashboards, visit

Overview dashboard

The Overview dashboard gives you a quick initial overview of what is happening on your network by displaying the interfaces involved, who is talking to whom, and how much. The flow diagram is a visual representation of the relationships between interfaces, which helps you to easily identify the top talkers. Clicking an IP address in this diagram creates a dashboard filter, resulting in the dashboard only displaying data involving this IP address. The network traffic charts displaying bandwidth usage and number of new flows over time are a great way to identify potential time ranges of interest. Clicking and dragging on either chart zooms in on the selected time range.
