Reliability Health Dashboard

Learn how to set up a reliability health dashboard to help you keep and updated view of your customer's level of experience.
Besides standard calendar-aligned reports, you can also set up reports that act as a reliability health dashboard, always displaying an up to date snapshot of your application’s health from your SLO's point of view. This type of reports are useful to maintain a real time view of how your users have been experiencing your products up to the current moment.
Reliability health dashboards show you how your SLOs have been meeting their targets within a fixed duration reporting window. This window rolls at the end of each day so that the report is always displaying the most recent data. When the reporting window rolls, the day at the tail end of the window is dropped, while the current, most recent day is included in the report. As the day progresses, the report automatically updates to include the most recent data that is coming in.

Setting up a reliability health dashboard

Creating a reliability health dashboard is a very similar process to creating a standard, calendar-aligned report. The main difference is in how you set up the reporting period.
Open the reporting period selector and click the Rolling Window toggle. It's that simple! This ensures your report will automatically roll at the end of each day and keep up to date with the latest SLO data.

After this, select the desired reporting period as you normally would. The reporting period determines how many days your report will take into consideration. To do this, you can chose from one of the available options in the reporting period selector. If for example, you chose the Last 7 days option, your report will include the last seven days worth of data including the current day.
Alternatively, you can select a custom reporting period. This will open a calendar from where you can chose a start date for your report. In opposition to standard reports, rolling window reports only allow you to specify a start date. The end date always corresponds to the current day. The length of time between your start date and the current day corresponds to the duration of your rolling report.
Every rolling report can be identified by a circular icon displayed in the Report Period & Frequency selector. If you see this icon, this means the report has an active rolling window.
