In a network operation center (NOC) the Ops Board can be used to visualize monitoring information. The monitoring information for various use-cases are arranged in configurable Dashlets. To address different user groups it is possible to create multiple Ops Boards.
There are two visualisation components to display Dashlets:
Ops Panel: Shows multiple Dashlets on one screen, e.g. on a NOC operators workstation
Ops Board: Shows one Dashlet at a time in rotation, e.g. for a screen wall in a NOC
To create and configure Ops Boards administration permissions are required. The configuration section is in admin area of OpenNMS HORIZON and named Ops Board Config Web Ui.
Create or modify Ops Boards is described in the following screenshot.
