I have a system that I am monitoring. The system consists of a master server with multiple smaller servers underneath it. They all communicate with eachother, perform different tasks and so on. Sometimes things goes wrong, which creates an alarm in the server. Since the system could consist of up to 200 servers, it's very tiresome to browse all the servers for potential problems and alarms.
So I want to create a tool that can look at the servers from the outside, check if there is a problem or not. I want to visualize this information in a dashboard like web tool, which could be something like a todo-list for the users monitoring the system. I want this "list" to be updated with potential system problems, giving the user a hint of why an item was added and I want the users to be able to assign themselves one of those tasks. Then they'll go into the system, investigating, fixing the problem, and when done somehow ticking of the item from the list.
What would be a good way to visualize this? Is it just a simple list of the issues or is more detailed cards a better solution? When thinking about this one, it feels as if it must already exist similar solutions out there, but I can't really find any good examples.
