Monitoring vuSmartMaps


vuSiteManager is a monitoring and management application that observes, manages, and orchestrates vuSmartMaps™. It is installed as part of the vuSmartMaps installation and has its own front-end UI and backend datastore. Depending upon the scale of the vuSmartMaps installation, it is either installed on a separate virtual machine (for larger setups) or the same virtual machine as vuSmartMaps.

vuSiteManger offers the functionalities, as outlined below:

  • Self-Observability: It continuously observes the vuSmartMaps installation and notifies the administrator of any issues in vuSmartMaps performance, enabling users to take corrective action if necessary. Provides a comprehensive list of activities it performs as part of self-observability, including monitoring system resources, tracking performance metrics, and analyzing error logs.
  • Alerts: Stay informed instantly about any downtime experienced by VM hosts or K8s components. These notifications are displayed as Alerts, providing detailed descriptions in an easy-to-read tabular format.

The Overall Health panel is the graphical representation of the overall health of the vuSmartMaps cluster. When you click on this panel, you will be redirected to the Overall Health page.

The panel next to Overall Health is Availability, which showcases the graphical representation of the availability of the vuSmarMaps cluster URL. Clicking on this panel will redirect you to the Availability page.

Another set of panels includes Alerts, VM Hosts, and Services


  • Alerts showcase the total number of active alerts, indicating how many are critical and how many are under warning.
  • VM Hosts display the total number of VM hosts, showing how many are Down and how many are in an Alert state.
  • Services display the total number of services, indicating how many are Down and how many are in the Alert state.

Clicking on each of these panels redirects the user to the dedicated storyboard.

At the bottom, K8s (Kubernetes) Metrics give insight into K8s cluster components like K8s Pods, K8s Deployment, K8s DaemonSet, and K8s StatefulSet. On clicking this panel, you will be redirected to the dedicated page.
