Subject [jira] [Created] (CHUKWA-746) Redesign dashboard
Date Sat, 02 May 2015 18:01:07 GMT
Eric Yang created CHUKWA-746:

             Summary: Redesign dashboard
                 Key: CHUKWA-746
             Project: Chukwa
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: User Interface
    Affects Versions: 0.6.0, 0.5.0, 0.4.0
         Environment: MacOSX, Linux
            Reporter: Eric Yang
            Assignee: Eric Yang

Chukwa dashboard can be customized with hundreds of parameters with GET query parameters.
 However, most options are used once and never used again.  In the recent change to chart
publish REST API call, visualization parameters are converted to be part of graph explorer
widget.  The charts are static after they are published.  This helps to completely remove
the query parameter approach of customizing widgets.  A widget can be described as easy as
a GET URL.  This helps us to reduce from the hundred of thousands lines dashboard javascript
to something that can accomplish with few lines of javascript to provide the dashboard.  

The new dashboard will provide better navigation to include Search, and Zoom out of a widget.

Search is useful to find widgets and also find any texture information that is indexed.

Zoom out provide a way to jump from a summary dashboard to task oriented UI.

Navigation menu provide the following features initially:
Search - Auto completed search to find widgets or indexed logs
User Activities - Enable user to find user applications and job monitoring
System Activities - Display System activities and usage
Graph Explorer - Enable editoral task of generating a chart from HBase data
