Active Directory dashboard

Track Kerberos server activity for Active Directory user and computer accounts as well as services such as global catalog and group policies.

The Active Directory dashboard is a built-in, system dashboard, and you cannot edit, delete, or add system dashboards to a collection. However, you can copy a chart from a system dashboard and add it to a custom dashboard, or you can make a copy of the dashboard and edit it to monitor metrics that are relevant to you.

Each chart in the Active Directory dashboard contains visualizations of protocol metric data, organized by region. The following information summarizes each region and its charts.
