93. A Step-By-Step Guide to Building Modern Dashboards

Turning data into information and information into decisions are some of the most common challenges facing any monitoring professional. A clean, easy-to-interpret dashboard can go a long way in turning those raw numbers into actionable decisions. In this heavily requested follow-up episode, Kevin M. Sparenberg, technical content manager for THWACK®, presents a step-by-step build for modern dashboards. This live and in-depth working session builds on lessons learned from previous SolarWinds Lab episodes (#85, #86, and #91). To get the most from this session, we strongly encourage you to review those episodes, and come prepared with your questions.

At the end of this SolarWinds Lab, you'll have the skills necessary to:

  • Craft a dashboard for your or another team
  • Explain the difference and benefits of the four widget types
  • Use your SWQL skills to craft custom data needed by your teams
