The Dashboard Tab

On the dashboard, by default, incoming data and information is processed and displayed via “widgets” (small modules each handling a specific set of data or information - eg. a temperature tracking widget).

Learning about The Dashboard

  • You can check real time data by adding various widgets corrosponding with the type of data you would like to display.
  • By default, some widgets available for use include: sensor, actuator, device, gateway, tag, line chart, event chart, cumulative chart, stacked chart, energy chart, gateway monitor, timeline and more.


About Widgets

  • ① The Widget’s icon/name, ② Manually refresh data, ③ Settings, ④ Processed Sensor Data, ⑤ Sensor icon/name, ⑥ Gateway, ⑦ Last update time.
  • The measurement units used for each widget can also be defined.
  • Each Widget provides by default a refresh, and configuration icon on top. The refresh/update icon will be displayed as green if connected, red if disconnected, and gray if set to not automatically update/refresh.


Adding Widgets

  • Click the button on the right top of the dashboard.
  • As an example, try adding a sensor widget in this widget list.
  • After adding the sensor widget to the dashboard, Click select the sensor in the middle of the widget option screen.
  • Add a name for your widget and select a gateway and sensor.
  • Push save and the sensor widget will be displayed.


Changing the order of widgets

  • You can order widgets around based on the priority you want to see them in. Drag by clicking the name area of the widget.


Widget Settings

  • Click the setting icon widget.
  • Size
    • Edit size of widget for types.
    • Edit width for line chart, event chart, variation chart, accumulation chart and energy chart.
    • Edit height for actuator, device, timeline, and gateway monitor.
    • At the current time, you cannot edit any sensor widgets.
  • Delete widget
    • Deletes the widget



The Timeline Tab

You can check the events that occurred by the rule in the latest order.

Usage Timeline

  • Events will be displayed based on any user set rules. If no rules are set, you can move to rule management to set a new rule.
  • You can filter events based on the severity level of the alert at the top right of the event timeline. Select the buttons to see specific levels.
  • You can also click on the name of each rule to drill down directly to the detailed information page.


Viewing the Timeline

  • ② Severity level of this event (Colors can be configured for Fatal/Warning/Information)
  • ③ Time of this event
  • ④ Event message
    • Message will be displayed manually from a user or can be otherwise provided.
    • if rule is fail, message is printed as follows.
  • ⑤ You can check the condition and the actual value of the rule.



The Sensor Tab

The sensor list displays a full, sortable list of sensors in your network. The tag and tab menus on top can be used to display gateways, tags, and physical locations of things on the map.


List of gateways

there is a list dedicated to gateways and the sensors they are connected to.

  • ① Gateway selection screen : You can select the desired gateway. It contains a search function that allows you to find the gateway you want with the gateway name.
  • ② Name of gateway : You can click the gateway name to go to the gateway information page and see the gateway status graph.
  • ③ Gateway last update time : Last time this gateway’s information was updated.
    (green : connection, red : disconnection, black : error)
  • ④ Refresh: Refresh the sensor value.
  • ⑤ option : You can go to Gateway Management and view/modify the gateway information.
  • ⑥ Name of device : Click on the device name to go to the device page and see the list of sensors included in the device.
  • ⑦ Name of sensor : Click on the sensor name to go to Sensor page.
  • ⑧ Latest data of sensor
  • ⑨ Sensor Last Update Time: Indicates the last time the Sensor was updated.
    (green : connection, red : disconnection, black : error)


Tag List Tab

  • ① Tag selection screen : select a registered tag.
  • ② Device information icon : You can see the devices/gateways of the sensors belonging to the tag.
  • ③ Chart analysis icon : Go to the Sensor Analysis page. You can select and view the graphs of the sensors included in the tag.
  • ④ Refresh: Refresh the sensor value.
  • ⑤ option : You can go to Tag Management and modify/delete the tags.
  • ⑥ Name of tag
  • ⑦ Name of sensor : Click on the sensor name to go to Sensor page.
  • ⑧ Event timeline : You can see the timeline for the sensors in the tag.


The Map Tab

If gateways and sensors have geographical/physical positioning data, they will be displayed here. You can manually add location data via the Gateway management page.

  • ① Gateway selection screen : Using the dropdown to select gateway will allow you to show specific gateways and sensors on the map.
  • ② Display updated time of gateway and device and sensor units by clicking the icon.
  • ③ The icons at the top of the map can return the map to the previous zoom ratio. Also It can be reset to its initial position and zoom ratio.


Sensor

Click on the sensor name to go to the sensor page and you can see the details of the selected sensor.

  • Sensor setting: You can modify sensor name and add/delete chart guidelines.
  • ② Period setting: Set the date range to view.
  • ③ Reference date: You can see the sensor value up to the reference date.
  • ④ Chart: It shows sensor value in graph. Cf) If the sensor value is a character string, no chart. If the sensor is a location sensor, it is displayed as a map instead of a graph.
  • ⑤ Table: Shows the sensor value and the time at which the sensor value was obtained.
  • ⑥ Chart Guideline: Select whether to show guidelines on the chart.
  • ⑦ Data analysis: Go to sensor data analysis page.
  • ⑧ Event Timeline: You can check the timeline for rules that include that sensors.


sensor setting

  • ① Name of sensor : You can modify the sensor name.
  • ② Chart Guideline : You can add/remove guidelines shown in charts and line charts.

  • You can set the Draw guideline in .

The Analysis Tab

The analysis tab includes tools to analyze and create actionable data from your Things. Also The analysis tab is divided into charts and statistics.


Chart Tab

  • Provides a timeline based chart for the selected sensors. ① and ② can be used to select from either tags or sensor/gateway lists. ④ is used to select a range of time to display. ⑦ is the primary, detailed data viewing area, and ⑧ is the selection area, which can be used to select an area of data as well as to move the region of time selected. ⑨ resets to initial settings. All data can be directly downloaded via the ⑩ export function.

Ways to use Charts

  • Select a gateway - get an overview of a gateway’s specific data and details.
  • Select a service - get a broad overview of service-related data.
  • Select a gateway that has sensors attached - get a overview of broad portions of your service.
  • Select a specific sensor - for drilling down to detailed, specific information.
  • Select a specific period time - if you are interested in dividing data by time.
  • Export a detailed chart - can be used for presentations, infographics, etc..
  • Use a tag group - Display values of groupings of sensors to compare similar sensors and performance.


Statistics Tab

  • Provides detailed statistics for a selected gateway. Select the ② gateway, and click the search button. For comparisons, you can ③ add more sensors. Check ④ time range and ⑤ starting date (month/year).

Statistic tutorial

  • Select the gateway or tag with the sensor to be shown in the statistics.
  • Select the time to show the data.
  • Click View. The values of the sensors of the selected gateway or tag are output by time unit.
  • Select the desired data value type for each sensor. (count, max, min, sum, average, first, last, range, diff, frequency)



Settings - Tag Management

Tags can be added, edited and managed in this settings panel. Tags are excellent for creating logical groupings of sensors and gateways used for reporting and other purposes later on.

Tag Screen in Detail

  • You can create new rules based on tags. In this way, large logical groupings of sensors can have specifically set rules.

Tag selection

  • Select the ① tag name on top. Sensors falling under this tag will now be displayed.

Tag List

  • Display ② each tag.
  • Display ③ Tag name, ④ Sensors attached to the tag, ⑤ gateway, ⑥ sensor type, ⑦ sensor name, ⑧ sensor ID in the tag list.
