Health refers to the overall status of an entity or group of entities. Health status displays on Relationships and Cisco Cloud Observability Observe by color-coded health symbols. List and detail views contain color-coded health indicators.

Once you click the entity groups in the Relationships map, a list of entities associated with the parent entity and its corresponding details display in a list view. The Health column displays icons that indicate the health of the entities. See Entity Health Monitoring.

Indicates that the entity is in Normal state. Click on the entity to drill down further and determine the affected entity, and entity instances.

Indicates that the entity is in Critical state. Click on the entity to drill down further and determine the entity, and entity instances.

Heath Rules can be created and viewed through Properties

On Relationships and Observe, click the entity type name or hover over and click an entity set to view overall health by entity type. The red health symbol indicates unhealthy entities in warning and critical states. Unknown entities either do not have a health rule or do not contain enough data to determine health status. These are grouped and labeled unknown. See Entity Health Monitoring and Configure Health Rollup.

Observe and Relationships display up to three Health colors, combining warning and critical statuses in the red symbol.

From the list view, you can view the health violation information of the entities that are in critical, warning, or unknown state. Click the health symbol to view the violating metrics and the conditions on the HEALTH AND ALERTING inspector panel. For example, if an entity is in critical state, you can click the health symbol to view violating health rules or anomaly detection. This information helps you to quickly identify the violations for the entity without navigating deeper into the entity page.
