Explore mPulse

Get familiar with mPulse and some of the items you'll use to monitor your site’s performance and to manage your mPulse environment.

When you log in to mPulse for the first time, you'll see the Summary dashboard with live business and performance data about your website. The dashboard looks like this:

The Summary view is just one of many system dashboards that support different monitoring use cases, and it’s a great starting point to explore the basic data that mPulse collects. In a glance, you can see your site’s performance over time, a summary of trackable metrics (page views, page load, and bounce rate) performance over the same time period, and performance by geography.

To the left of the Summary tab is the Central tab, followed by the Home tab. At the far right, is a link to an overview of mPulse, localization choices, and quick access to your account preferences.

Home

The Home page gives you easy access to mPulse basics. Quick-pick icons to popular system dashboards are along the top. A summary of your site’s activity for the last 24 hours gives you an idea of how performance is trending. A list of available items in your tenant. From here, you can add, delete or change your apps, dashboards, alerts and reports. At the bottom of the page, you’ll find links to more information about mPulse and support.

To disable the Home page, click Central, then My Settings. Under General, select the Don’t show home page on each page load checkbox.

Central

This is the main area (directory) of the mPulse user interface for access to items that you’ll use for day-to-day activities in your mPulse environment.

On the left, at the top of the pane, are reports, alerts, apps, and dashboards that you and your colleagues create. For instance, in addition to the system dashboards, you can create an unlimited number of your own custom dashboards. When you create a custom dashboard, it shows up in the Dashboards folder along with the system dashboards.

The lower portion of the pane includes directories, such as Library, Settings, Monitoring, and Administration, where you can monitor, manage, and maintain your objects, as well as perform your administrative tasks.

When you click a folder, the items available to you appear in the right pane as shown in the following example. This area shows specific details (for example, name, path, owner, date and time) for each item. To sort the columns, click on the headings.
To search for an item in the list, click the filter icon on the right as shown here.
In the filter dialog, enter the filters as shown in the following example, then click the Save icon (above the filter icon) to see your search results. To remove the filter, click the X, then click the Save icon.
