Operation explorer

The Operation explorer is a tool for identifying slow operations that may require your attention. Use it for analyses inside the data center.

This explorer has the following tabs.


The Overview tab offers you a quick overview of operations so you can see at a glance whether any operations are particularly troublesome. Start with the Overview and move on to the other tabs if you see anything that requires your attention.


  • Health vs response time
  • Availability vs failures
  • Page load time vs slow operations
  • Usage vs operations
