Where can I monitor my services?

The Service health dashboard tile is a great place to view the monitored services running in your environment. This tile provides an overview of all services monitored by Dynatrace including the number of services experiencing performance degradation. This high-level visualization provides an easily digestible view, which makes it a great fit for management dashboards.

In the Service health tile below, a problem with one service is indicated (red hexagon). If you click the tile, you navigate to the Services page where the impacted service is listed at the top.
