This page describes Infrastructure Overview dashboard and its view modes: topology; host lists by name or label, process list, and hosts shown as tiles. For infrastructure overview in the AppMon Web, see Operations web view.
Difference between global and System Profile-related overviews

You can also open it as a dashlet, to do so click the Infrastructure Overview node under the required System Profile in Cockpit, or click Add dashlet icon and select the Infrastructure Overview dashlet from the list.
To view a global overview of all infrastructure, related to your server, use the Infrastructure node under the required server in Cockpit.
