Panorama Plugin for Cisco ACI Dashboard

The Panorama plugin for Cisco ACI dashboard provides a bird’s-eye view of the ACI infrastructure monitored by the plugin. The dashboard consists of two pages—the first page provides an overview of various objects monitored by the plugin on a set of clickable tiles; clicking a tile takes you to the second page that provides further information about the object displayed on the tile.
After installing the plugin, you can access the dashboard by selecting

The dashboard only queries for and counts pre-rule security policies configured on Panorama; it does not include post-rules, default-rules, or NAT rules.
