On the left side, you can navigate through the features (Discover, Visualization, Dashboard and Console).

Pulse 6 comes with many default dashboards, let’s open the Active threads. There are three main sections:

  • Period where you can select the time you want to look at (by default the last 15 min)
  • Filters where you can filtering all visualizations by entering a value or click the + Add Filter button to add a filter using a pop-up
  • Visualizations: One dashboard includes many visualizations
