Cloud Playout combines many tools and cloud services. To monitor important technical resources, qibb provides a usage dashboard. This usage overview includes computing, storage, and traffic usage. This dashboard offers four different types of charts.

Usage and Trends

These widgets provide you with two pieces of information:

  • First is the usage in the current calendar month for computing, storage, traffic, and total. The values displayed here are calculated from the first day of the month to the current date. These values can be aggregated from several services and prevent you to connect the usage values from many Cloud– or SaaS providers.

  • Second: On the right side of the widgets there is a small arrow that indicates an increase or decrease in usage compared with the last month.  

Usage by Application

As a supervisor, you might be interested in more detailed usage statistics. For example, You know the total usage for your infrastructure in the cloud, but you need to know which application generates the most storage usage.

The horizontal bars chart shows all usage generating applications with value and share in a bar chart.

Usage over Time

The “Usage over Time” bar chart aggregates two data sources and displays the information in one widget. On the left y-axis, you can find the legend for running hours of the channel uptime (bar chart). The default view is set to “Last 3 days” with a granularity of “hourly”. You can get detailed statistics by hovering over the lines and bars of the chart with the mouse.

The “Usage over time” widget combines data from two sources about running hours (AWS) and real usage (Leostream).

Change Time Period

The date picker allows you to change the time period of the “Usage over Time” widget to an individual period. These can be individual dates picked in the calendar or you can choose presets, such as “Last 7 days” or “Last 3 months”. Another option is the granularity– here you can choose the detailed level of usage, for example hourly, daily, and monthly.

With the “date picker”, you can choose an individual period.
