It could be a custom portlet, but the recommended way is to serve a page:
- using the RHQ REST API
- hosted on a different server (could be just a static web server if you use only HTML/JS/CSS)
Feel free to ask more questions on the forum if you need help with the REST API.
Hi, just out of curiosity, what sort of view are you looking for? We have availability displayed in lots of places so I was wondering what your desired view would be? Are you talking about a view that shows the availability history (the chart) for a lot of resources?
I would love to have this possibility too. At the moment I use the All Groups view to have a quick way of telling status of all resources. I've been thinking of looking at custom portlets but not even sure what I want is possible technically.
Having the possibility to build a kind of "Boss View" would be great, like choosing what resources to show and having it fill a panel which could then be displayed full-screen on a monitor.
We have a custom page in Tivoli with icons for services and servers and I'd like something like that to be possible with RHQ as well.
However RHQ sees resources a bit differently, there is no clear 'hierarchy' for alerts so not sure how you'd make them propagate up through the logical levels.
I guess Redhat probably has something like it but probably in another product.
Right, I am looking for this kind of view of all my resources. I want to provide descriptions, icons, etc., to represent the servers/services.
So it looks like building a new app using the REST API might be the way to go.
REST is better, of course, if you want to make interactive or real-time pages.
