Dashboards

The Sitefinity Cloud Management Portal provides a series of predefined and customizable dashboards that enable customers to monitor their project key application metrics, CI/CD pipeline statuses, and so on.

Application metrics dashboard

Sitefinity Cloud Management Portal provides an Application Metrics dashboard, where graphical representations of the website usage, reliability and responsiveness are available. To access the dashboard follow these steps:

    AppMetrics dashboard

  By default the Application Metrics dashboard tracks the following items:

  • Availability - this metric tracks the average percentage uptime of your production website 
  • Unique sessions - this metric provides information about the unique users browsing the website
  • Failed requests - the number of failed requests to your website domain. 
  • Exceptions - the sum of exceptions your website has thrown during runtime
  • Request Execution Time - how long does it take on average for an ASP.NET request to your website to execute
  • CPU Usage - average CPU load
  • Available Memory - average memory load

Accessing application insights for your project

You can further drill down your Sitefinity Cloud project application metrics, leveraging the integration with Azure Application Insights. While dashboards present an up-to date snapshot of your application metrics for a predefined period, Application  Insights enables you to further review historic data for and monitor your application performance over a specified period.

To view you application insights you can click on any of the widgets available on the Application Metrics dashboard. This will automatically redirect you to the respective Application Insights section of the Azure portal. Alternatively you can login to the Azure Portal and navigate to Application Insights.

Tracking your monthly availability and page views

In addition to providing visual representation of your website usage, reliability and responsiveness metrics, the Sitefinity Cloud Application Metrics dashboard enables you to track your project monthly availability and monthly pageviews. Both metrics are available on top of the Application metrics dashboard.

Availability_PageViews

The Availability metric shows (in percentage) the average website availability for the last 30 days. For more information about the offered availability for your Sitefinity Cloud tier, check the  Uptime Service Level Availability (SLA) item matching your Tier on the Sitefinity Cloud Tiers page.

The Page views metric displays the total number of page views from your website in the last 30 days. Depending on your Sitefinity Cloud Tier, the widget also displays the monthly limit according to your Sitefinity Cloud plan. If you exceed the limit at any given point in time, you will receive an email notification.

In addition to the dashboard widgets visualizing the availability and page views information, you will receive an email summary from Sitefinity Cloud once a month, providing a breakdown by month for the values of these two metrics for the past 6 months.

Deployment dashboard
