  • Patent number: 11146461
    Abstract: Various example implementations are directed to circuits, apparatuses, and methods for monitoring and/or analysis of computing servers. According to an example embodiment, an apparatus includes a processing circuit having an analysis circuit configured to retrieve operating state data for a plurality of servers. The analysis circuit determines an operating state of each of the servers for a plurality of time periods. The determined operating state is one of an up state, a warning state, and a down state. The processing circuit also includes an interface circuit configured to provide a graphical user interface (GUI). For each of the servers, the GUI displays a timeline having a respective time block for each of the plurality of time periods. Each time block has a graphical indication of one of the three states of operation corresponding to the operating state of the server at the corresponding time period.
