Displays

Mosaic provides a diverse set of displays and features. Here are just a few features that can be found in the Mosaic system. Request a demo to see the full set today!

Event Display

Status messages are generated from all applications within the Mosaic software system and received from external applications to which Mosaic interfaces. These messages provide detailed information regarding the status of the objects being monitored by Mosaic, internal status of the Mosaic system, and status and notifications from external applications.
The Event Display provides the user interface to view these messages. It maintains a local cache of messages received and generated by Mosaic and displays them in chronological order to the user. As new messages are received, the display updates in near real-time.

Alarm Display

Mosaic can be configured to maintain a list of parameters that are in an off-nominal severity status. For instance, it can be configured to track the list of parameters that are in an Alarm or Warning state. The Alarm Display then provides a summary view of all of the tracked severities present on the system. The alarm messages contain information such as the current parameter severity, the time a parameter entered a severity level, and the current value of the parameter.
The Alarm Display is split into one or more regions, where each region contains a configurable alarm severity or list of alarm severities. The nominal configuration is to track the Alarm and Warning severities and split them into separate regions. This separation aids the operations team in prioritizing a response by ensuring alarms are not missed or lost due to a high volume of warnings. Within each pane, the entries are sorted by default in the order the alarms were received. The status bar on the Alarm Display contains a summary alarm status with a count of each of the tracked severities that are currently present in the Mosaic system. Whenever a new alarm is detected or an existing alarm changes severity the Alarm Display is updated in near real-time.

Map Display

The Map Display provides the ability to lay out telemetry parameters that contain latitude and longitude location information. The types of parameters that are displayed are usually parameter group references containing roll-up summary status. The display consists of a map of colored icons layered on top of colored backgrounds. The foreground color of the icon provides the primary status of the object, while the background color represents the highest severity secondary status. The exact layout and contents of a map display are specified using the Map Configuration Dialog. The Map Display can be integrated with most slippy map tile servers. Slippy maps support re-positioning and zoom in/zoom out. Common types of slippy map tile servers are Open Street MapsESRI. Display configuration specifies the URL template used to request map tiles based upon X/Y coordinates and Z zoom level.

Secondary Status Display

The Secondary Status Display performs the same general function as the Alarm Display except that it is used to track secondary status severity instead of primary severity. The secondary status severities that are tracked by the display are specified in the display configuration. It is a multi-pane tabular display and so supports all of the generic tabular display functionality. It is started from the Mosaic main menu. One major difference between the Secondary Status Display and the Alarm Display is that it is possible for a parameter to have multiple secondary status flags and so, multiple secondary status severities. Therefore, it is possible for a parameter to appear in multiple tables when viewed in multi-pane mode and to affect multiple severity counts.

External Connection Display

The external connection display is used to display connection properties and status. Each connection in the display is a connection between the Mosaic server and an external server. The connection status follows the configured severity colors for not connected, connected, and in error. The definition of error is dependent upon connection type and may not be used. The properties shown in the display are configurable, but by default show the host and port of the external connection.

Device List View

The device list view provides a listing of all devices for all sites the client is joined to. The device list is grouped by site and placed in alphabetical order.
Each device is rendered with the name of the device, the primary severity, the secondary severity and an indicator if the device requires acknowledgment. The primary severity is shown as the round status ball icon. The secondary severity is displayed as the square box around the primary severity. Note that each severity is displayed as the color specified in the severity configuration. If the device requires acknowledgment a red star will be rendered beside the severity icon.
As with all resource view displays, status rolls up to the parent nodes. The device list is unique in the fact that the primary severity, secondary severity and requires acknowledgment rolls up. The parent node will display the most severe primary severity and the most severe secondary severity. If any child node requires acknowledgment the parent will display the acknowledgment required icon.

Driver Instance View

The Driver Instance View shows the status of all configured driver instances across all driver managers. The displayed information includes the configuration name, device, driver type, and current status. The severity for a driver instance is driven by the worst severity of all of the connections defined for the driver and follows the same conventions as the External Connection Display. If distributed driver managers are used, the driver instances can be grouped by driver manager.

Panel Display

Panels are graphical representations of the system which are then bound to parameter or device data points to drive user configurable dynamic animation. Panels support a wealth of animations from translation, rotation, visibility, blinking, color change and more. Panels provide an intuitive mechanism to display a large volume of data in a well-organized and easy to digest manner.

Status Grid

The Status Grid displays provide a unified visual representation of the status of a collection of telemetry parameters. The types of parameters that are displayed are usually parameter group references, such as locations, broadcast channels, and subnetworks. The Status Grid displays allow the user to understand at a glance the current state of all objects being monitored. The display consists of a grid of colored icons layered on top of colored backgrounds. The foreground color of the icon provides an immediate indication of the primary status of the object, while the background color represents the highest severity secondary status. The exact layout and contents of a status grid display is configurable. The definition of the display can be edited using the Status Grid Editor.
