Event Count tile

The Event Count tile displays a doughnut chart representing the severities of events reported against entities in the dashboard's scope.

  • Each shaded area of the doughnut represents a different event severity level.

  • The number in the center of the doughnut is the total count of unique events during the current time range. The default is to show the deduplicated count of events, which you can change to the raw count of event instances.

When you move your pointer over the chart, a tooltip shows the totals for each event type.

You can specify event fields to filter events in the dashboard's scope.

  • Events are included in the total count when all specified fields match.

    For example, if you specify the production state, priority level, and event status fields, events that match all the fields are included, and all other events are excluded.

  • Several fields have multiple options; a field matches when any of the specified options match.

    For example, if you specify the Production, Test, and Decommissioned production states, events that match any one of those states are included in the total count.

The event fields are generated by the event processing service of a Collection Zone. When no event fields are specified to filter events, the tile includes all events of the specified severities.
