Select the high-level view: Hosts, Kubernetes, or Docker. When you change views, you can see the same data through the perspective of a different category.

Use the power of Searchedit

The Search bar is always available. You can use it to perform adhoc or structured searches. The Search feature can surface the information you’re looking for, even if the other options you have selected would normally filter it out.

This filter helps you start focusing on potential problem areas that may need further investigation. You’ll see metrics that are most relevant for hosts or the container you selected.
