As a dashboard author I would like to know how often my dashboard is being viewed/accessed.
As a New Relic One Application author, I would like to know how often my application is being viewed/accessed.
We often create dashboards/NROne-applications for the benefit of others within our organization. It would be helpful to understand the rate of adoption for these dashboards/NROne-apps.
Often, specific instrumentation has been developed to feed data into a given dashboard. Instrumentation has some inherent costs (development+maintenance, resource utilization) . When a dashboard ceases to be used, it implies that the underlying instrumentation may have also outlived its usefulness. It would be helpful to know which dashboards are no longer being used so that less valuable instrumentation can be deprecated.
Historically, we have had dashboards numbering into the thousands. (Admittedly, a likely factor is poor dashboard hygiene). Without knowing which dashboards are no longer used, we cannot get better at our dashboard hygiene.
Discoverability of high-value dashboards would be much easier, if we could rank them according to the frequency they are used.
