Using the Account Overview Dashboard

The PubSub+ Insights Account Overview dashboard provides an overview of Insights for the account that you are logged into. Specifically, the Account Overview dashboard gives you:

  • a starting place to quickly see the high-level aspects and breadth of your estate
  • a quick understanding of the aspects in your account that may require attention (including indication if you have a potential opportunity for some optimizations)
  • an understanding of the volume of traffic going through your event-driven architecture (EDA) and the depth of metrics and monitors captured
  • an access point to navigate to your Datadog account and access the set of PubSub+ Insights dashboards for Datadog available in Insights (this requires that your account has Insights Advanced Editor role assigned, see Enabling PubSub+ Insights Advanced Monitoring for more information).

This page is accessible from Insights from the navigation bar and gives you an overview at the account level of your estate. An estate refers to your deployment of event broker services, the messaging and activities that occur, and any capabilities that are part of your account for PubSub+ Cloud (Workspace).
