This section details the dashboards of System Utilization dashboards category. For more information on operations that can be performed on reporting dashboards, see About Dashboards.

The dashboards covered in this section are as follows:

CPU Utilization Trend

The CPU Utilization Trend dashboard provides CPU usage trends over a given time frame. The default dashboard displays line graphs that show CPU usage trends for up to five members in the Grid over the last 24 hours. Each of the members is represented with a different color line graph.

Memory Utilization Trend

The Memory Utilization Trend dashboard provides memory usage trends over a given time frame. The default dashboard displays line graphs that show memory usage trends for up to five members in the Grid over the last 24 hours. Each of the members is represented with a different color line graph.

Traffic Rate by Member

The Traffic Rate by Member dashboard provides inbound and outbound traffic over a given time frame. The dashboard displays line graphs that show traffic rate for members with reporting service enabled within the last 24 hours. Grid Manager uses different color line graphs to distinguish inbound and outbound traffic for different members.

Flex Grid Licensing Features Enabled

The Flex Grid Licensing Features Enabled dashboard lists the overall status of licensed features across all IB-FLEX members in the Grid. You can also view the status of each feature for individual  members during a specified time period.


Note: When you move your mouse away from the FLEX Grid Licensing Features Enabled section, the Open in Search, Inspect, and Refresh icons might not show up in the GUI. You can view these icons when you move your mouse on the data displayed for the FLEX Grid Licensing Features Enabled dashboard.

    • Subscriber Services: Displays if Subscriber Services is enabled on a member.
    • Threat Analytics: Displays if Threat Analytics is enabled on a member.
    • Threat Protection: Displays if Threat Protection service is enabled on a member.

Managed DDI Features Enabled

The Managed DDI Features Enabled dashboard is for managed services deployment and displays the overall status for licensed features across all IB-FLEX members on the Grid. The status data used in the report is generated once every 24 hours for all IB-FLEX members in the Grid. The report is in a tabular format and the rows indicate the status of the feature. The report displays Yes in the Enabled column if the feature is enabled on at least one IB-FLEX member in the Grid for a period of at least 15 days. You can drill down on a row to view the feature status for individual members during a specified time period.

The report displays the status for the following features:

  • Recursive DNS
  • Authoritative DNS: Displayed if DNS is enabled and the authoritative zone is assigned to the member.
  • DNS Cache Acceleration: Displayed if the DNS Cache Acceleration service is enabled on the member.
  • DHCP: Displayed if the DHCP service is enabled o the member.
  • Captive Portal: Displayed if the Captive Portal service is enabled on the member.
  • Active Trust: Separate rows are displayed for Active Trust Standard and Active Trust Plus. Active Trust Standard supports 4 zones whereas Active Trust Plus/Active Trust Advanced supports 7 zones in addition to these 4 zones. The Managed DDI Features Enabled report displays the highest level of Active Trust support configured for a member.
    Active Trust Plus is displayed as Enabled if a member has any of the following RPZ feed zones configured: antimalware-ip.rpz.infoblox.local, bot-ip.rpz.infoblox.local, exploitkit-ip.rpz.infoblox.local, malware-dga.rpz.infoblox.local, tor-exit-node-ip.rpz.infoblox.local, multi-domain.surbl.rpz.infoblox.local, fresh-domain.surbl.rpz.infoblox.local
    Active Trust Standard is displayed as Enabled if a member has any of the following RPZ feed zones configured: base.rpz.infoblox.local, antimalware.rpz.infoblox.local, ransomware.rpz.infoblox.local, bogon.rpz.infoblox.local
  • DNS  Traffic Control: Displayed if the DNS service is enabled with the resolver set to BIND and the LBDN pool is configured during DTC configuration.

System Capacity Prediction Trend

The System Capacity Prediction Trend dashboard forecasts the date and timestamp when the system resources such as CPU, database objects, DHCP leases, DNS queries meet its thresholds based on the current usage trends for the selected Grid member. This dashboard helps you determine the current usage, thresholds, and the predicted utilization over time. Using this dashboard, you can avoid unexpected usage of resources in your environment. In addition, you can scale the functional capacity for different appliance models.
The default dashboard displays the following information:

  • CPU Threshold
    • Max CPU Utilization: Displays the maximum CPU used by the selected member.
    • CPU Threshold Prediction: Displays the predicted date and time when the CPU usage might reach its threshold based on your current usage.
    • CPU Trend Prediction: Displays the line graph to show the actual, threshold, and predicted CPU usage with a different color for the selected member and model type.
  • DB Objects Threshold
    • Max DB Objects Utilization: The maximum number of database objects that is in use for the selected member.
    • DB Objects Threshold Prediction: Displays the predicted date and time when the database objects reach its thresholds based on your current usage trend.
    • DB Objects Trend Prediction: Displays the line graphs with different colors to show the actual database objects usage, database threshold value, and predicted database objects usage.
  • DNS Thresholds
    • Datasheet Max QPS: The maximum number of queries sent to the selected member.
    • QPS Threshold Prediction: Displays the predicted date and time when the queries might reach its threshold based on your current trend.
    • QPS Prediction: Displays line graphs to show the actual number of queries, threshold, and predicted number of queries with a different color for the selected member.
  • DHCP Thresholds
    • Datasheet Max LPS: Displays the appliance model and the number of DHCP leases issued.
    • LPS Threshold Prediction: Displays the predicted date and time when the DHCP leases might reach its threshold based on your current usage trend.
    • DHCP Activity Prediction: Displays the line graphs with a different color to show the actual, threshold, and predicted count of DHCP leases.
