Course Description

Viewing individual log items can be useful when troubleshooting specific issues, but less so to see overall trends. When monitoring performance, it is helpful to be able to view service performance at a glance. In this course, you will learn how to create and configure charts to visualize data and provide meaningful drilldown capabilities. You'll also learn how to build customized dashboards to facilitate at-a-glance performance monitoring.
