The Services Page 🔗

Back to User Interface contents

The Services page provides the “big picture” of your environment, and lets you navigate to traces or dashboards related to a specific service.

To open the Services page, click µAPM PG on the navigation bar, or hover over it and then select Services. On the Services page, the service map on the left represents the activity between services, discovered from the last 10,000 traces recorded, up to 24 hours. The table on the right shows live, real-time metrics for each service and endpoint.

As indicated at the bottom of the service map, the service color indicates the error rate for the service. If any µAPM PG detectors have triggered alerts on a service, the border color of the service indicates the highest severity of any alerts on that service. In the illustration below, a critical alert is associated with the checkout service.



The service node size is adjusted based on the request rate (requests/sec), as indicated in the chart legend.

Click a service name in the Services table to go directly to a built-in or custom service dashboard for that service.

To see information about a specific service on this page, click its icon in the service map or click the caret to expand it in the Services table. The zoomed-in view in the service map shows the service and its immediate dependencies. If the service has associated alerts, the list of alerts will be displayed.


The navigation bar at the top of the service map lets you navigate to a service dashboard for that service (the same dashboard you would see if you clicked the service name in the Services table), to the Traces page filtered by the service, or to the Alerts page filtered by the service.


When you hover over a service name in the service map, a tooltip appears that dims out all but immediate dependencies and displays metric trends.


The Services table shows the endpoints for the service, sorted in order from most to least number of requests per second.


When you hover over a service name in the Services table, an Actions menu icon appears. Click the icon to open the Actions menu.


The menu will contain one or more data links related to that service. SignalFx administrators will see a Configure data links option, which they can use to create a global data link to a customized dashboard and have it appear on the Actions menu. If you set the customized dashboard as a default link, users will navigate to your custom dashboard when they click on the service name.

You can create multiple data links for a service; they will all be available from the Actions menu in the Services table. The first link on the list navigates to the same dashboard as you would see by clicking on the service name.
