Feature Heatmap

Monitor provides a unique report type for visualizing license activity, which is called a heatmap. A heatmap shows the time period specified, represented as a 24x7 clock view.

For each hour in the view, a color-coded box exists that represents the amount of activity for the license feature relative to no activity (dark blue) and highest activity detected (bright red). The heatmap report page contains four heatmaps: one for peak concurrent usage, one for checkouts, one for checkins, and one for denials.
  • Dark Blue: No activity
  • Green: Medium activity
  • Orange: Medium high
  • Red: High activity

In the example above, Monday through Friday appear to be slightly more active between 9am and 6pm. Most nights have very light activity between 11pm and midnight.

To summarize the heatmap report, it visualizes congestion times so that plans can be made to equalize activity throughout the work day and reduce congestion bottlenecks.
