How to operate an application dependency widget
After adding an application dependency map widget to a dashboard, further use of the widget now occurs while viewing the dashboard.
Prerequisite(s):  
These steps assume you have already added an application dependency map widget to your dashboard and are viewing that dashboard from Configuration. For details, see How to create an application dependency widget.
 
To operate an application dependency map widget:
1. In the web interface, click a dashboard that includes an ADM widget.
2. Unlock the ADM widget by clicking the Lock icon in the upper-right corner of the ADM widget.
Some new icons and functionalities now appear.
3. Click the new icon .
The Discover Servers window appears, allowing you to configure the criteria for your server search.
4. Set the criteria for your server search as broad or narrow as necessary, and click OK to start the discovery.
Example: For example, to discover all stations that used LDAP or MySQL this week, type LDAP, MySQL into the Application(s) box. Then click inside the Time Range box and select This and Week from the resulting prompt and click OK.
5. Select the servers of interest from the resulting list, and click OK to add them to the ADM widget.
6. Right-click any of the servers (nodes) that appear in the ADM widget, and click Discover Connections.
7. Select the servers or clients of interest from the resulting list, and click OK to add them to the ADM widget.
This process should be repeated for every server node of interest.
Connecting lines appear between the original node and its servers and clients, exposing the relationships between the addresses.
8. When you are finished, click the Save icon in the upper-right corner of the ADM widget.
9. Lock the ADM widget by clicking the Lock icon in the upper-right corner of the ADM widget.
 
The connecting lines interact with the thresholds set in Configuration > Thresholds and the reporting interval. Each line can be clicked for additional information.
 
 
After you are finished, you can rearrange the nodes on the ADM widget by clicking and dragging. The widget must be unlocked for rearrangements to be made.
