A cloud-native SaaS offering, Goliath’s Cloud Monitor provides one source for monitoring and troubleshooting performance, availability, and end-user experiences across cloud environments.
Goliath Cloud Monitor provides dashboards, monitors, and alerting with little to no configuration required. Based on the environment type you are monitoring, monitors and dashboards are available out-of-the box so you can begin monitoring your environments right away.
The main dashboard displays all of the relevant alert information for your added environments in a single location.
All dashboard widgets are configurable and can be hidden or displayed using the Configure Widgets main menu option.

Data Interpretation Threshold Lines
Intuitive threshold indicator lines are displayed on charts to quickly show you when metrics fall outside of acceptable ranges. The threshold lines can be adjusted by adjusting the associated Monitor threshold ranges (see Monitors, below).

The main menu is accessible by clicking the down arrow next to your user name. Use this menu to customize your current dashboard, update your password, sign out of Multi-Cloud Monitor, and for Owner accounts, view Billing details.

Sharing Data and Dashboards
You can quickly share links to any dashboard page with other users by clicking the Share icon located in the top right corner of each page.
A link to the page is copied to the clipboard so you can then paste it into email, chat or other text communication to quickly share specific areas of the product.
Relevant monitors are available out of the box for all added environments. Each individual monitor can be edited to adjust thresholds to fit your specific requirements and environment.

When a monitor is triggered, whether due to a metric exceeding threshold or an event occurring, an alert is generated. Different alert types apply to monitors with thresholds.
All alerts are captured and displayed on the main dashboard. In addition, alerts will trigger notifications that can be configured in the Settings area.
Adjusting Threshold Lines
Monitor thresholds are also used to adjust the threshold lines that appear on some of the dashboard charts when in focus (mouse over the chart to display threshold lines).

From the Settings area, you can manage user accounts, environments, and notifications.
