Dashboard advice in ASP.NET

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have been tasked to create a web page 'Dashboard' to show the real-time status of our different production applications.
I am hoping if you can give me some advice on how to go about this project using ASP.NET VS2008.

The users want it to look good with some nice Dials/Gauges possibly graphs/charts - are there any free tools for this as I won't be able to purchase any.

Things to appear on the dashboard:
- application health (red, amber, green?)
- queue counts to check volume in different queues (tibco or MSMQ)
- CPU useage for an application on a server

I think the idea is to have widgets on the page but I am lookign for the best way to do this and what technologies I need.

Thanks for any advice as I really dont know where to begin.

Hey Folks

I am working on a project currently where I need to get data out of a 3rd party vendor's software that uses a .sdf file I looked this up and its a SQL CE file. I was hoping to just link to with with access but thats apparently not going to happen. I need to link to the database extract data from it to a csv file for later use. I also and most important I need to get the data from it and create a report that can be printed while on a customers site that my or may not have web access so I need for this program to be on and off line. I had my webapplication that I have been working on open and was able to bring up the sdf file under the server exploere however I can't seem to get anything out of it when I try to do grid views or detail views errors out.

Can I use one of Visual Studio projects to create this sort of applicaiton if so what would be the best approach. I would love to get an access odbc driver since office is allready installed on the employee's laptop's



KPI's Dashboard

In my current project, there are list of kpi's that needs to be displayed on a dashboard with red/green/amber etc and the Trend. This can be done in the following two ways 1) Creating KPI's in SSAS 2008 and display them using SSRS. The report will then be embedded on a sharepoint portal web page. 2) Creating KPI's using SSAS/Sharepoint Portal. The second option is obviously expensive since I cannot use sharepoint foundation. Could you please advise as what would be the best approach.

How to deploy dashboards made in dashboard designer to diferent site collections?

Hi I just migrated from sharepoint 2007 to 2010. We used to have performance point dashboards spread across libraries in subsites all across our primary site collection "Http://server:x" after I migrated I understand that I must migrate all performance point content to a new site or site collection made with the business intellingence template. I created a new site collection with this template (Http://server:x/sites/pps) and succesfully migrated all performance point content. Now I want to redeploy all the dashboards to their respective subsites in the  "Http://server:x" site collection so that everything looks exactly as it did when we where using SharePoint 2007. But when I try to deploy to a site I only get the option to deploy it to the ("Http://server:x/sites/pps") site collection and its respective libraries. I wish to manage all dashboard content centralized in (Http://server:x/sites/pps) but I want to deploy dashboards to libraries across  "Http://server:x" is this posible or how is Performance Point services supossed to work?   I also having trouble with DashBoard designer. I have everthing running on a Virtual Machine test enviroment. With windows server 2008 r2, 4 gb ram. Everything installed in one machine. And Suddently DashBoard Designer Crashes In the event log I get the error Dashboa

PerformancePoint Dashboard Problems

I am having a few problems with a dashboard I am trying to create. The first problem, is that I have an analytical chart, that was working correctly before. It is just a line graph with numbers on the y axis, and date on the x axis. When I created the chart, the database only had entries for four days, all of which showed up.  Today, I updated the table to where it has 15 days of data now, but only the original four entries still show up. Secondly, I have created a time intelligence filter. The filter itself works fine when I preview it. The formulas are correct, and my hierarchy is correct. The problem comes when I try to create the connection between the filter and the chart.  On my available fields under the filter, I have, "display condition, time, display value, member unique name, formula, and the name of my data source. I obviously want the time filter to change the time field on my chart.  I dragged "formula" down to the chart, selected Time PK Date as the "connect to," and set formula to the source Value. I believe those should be the correct settings, yes? well when I deploy the dashboard to my sharepoint site, I get this error: "Error running data source query. Contact the administrator for more details."   Since I am the administrator, I checked out the event logs, and was given these errors: --------------

Seeking Advice for Implementing Document Library Functionality

I have an assignment to implement a mechanism in WSS 3.0 to deliver files from a document library as PDF when the user selects a particular file.  I have a third party tool for PDF conversion which I can use to do the conversion, and I have put together some C# code for the API that does what I need as far as that goes. Where I am having trouble is deciding how to implement this in Sharepoint.  The multiple steps involved in kicking off a workflow would confuse many users, especially those not used to Sharepoint.  I would like to find a solution that would involve a single click on the chosen document. I know my way around ASP.NET, but Sharepoint is less familiar.  I am not afraid to jump in, and am not asking anyone to write code for me, but I am trying to get traction on the Sharepoint road.  I would appreciate any thoughts others have as to a direction I might take. Thanks.

Advice needed on backup strategy and implementation

This is my plan: Full database backup is performed at 5AM every day. Then log backups are taken every 30 minutes starting from 5:30AM till 11:30PM What I want to achieve is to have all backups for the same day to be contained in the same file on the disk. That is on Feb 18 2010 file c:\db_backup_02_18_10.BAK will be created at 5AM with full database backup. All backup logs that occur on Feb 18 will be appended to the same file. Next day c:\db_backup_02_19_10.BAK will be created at 5AM. Is this "correct" approach? The reason I like it is that everything needed to restore to any point in time for specific day is contained in one file and can be copied easily to a different computer. I tried to achieve this result via Maintenance Plan wizard by creating one task for full backup (scheduled once a day at 5AM) and another task for log backup (scheduled every 30 minutes starting from 5:30AM till 11:30PM) (both tasks are in the same maintenance plan). This, however, saves result from each job in a separate file called $DBNAME_backup_YYYY_MM_DD_HHMMSS_NNNNNNN.trn (for transaction log backup; will probably have extension .BAK for full backup) Can this even be done via Maintenance plan? I think I can achieve desired result via SSIS where I can generate file name programmatically and pass it as a parameter to "BACKUP DATABASE ..." or "BACKUP LOG ..." stat

Dynamic member selection filters in Dashboard Designer/PPS2010

Question regarding member selection filters in Dashboard Designer (PPS 2010): When selecting the filter members, is there any way to make them dynamic? I.e. when a new member is added (e.g. a new year when we enter one), can it be included without having to manually add them in the filter? Thanks.

How do I nest dimensions in scorecards in Dashboard Designer?

I have a scorecard where I have a KPI on columns and a dimension on rows. That works fine. I can also add another dimension on rows and add it as a parent for example. The only thing I miss is a drilldown "+". What I see is basically a scorecard showing all possible rows, while I want one where I can drill down (or through) and expand rows if I want. How do I get the parent to be expandable? Thanks
