Groupings Editor

Groupings are hierarchical organizations of labels, allowing you to organize your infrastructure views on the Explore UI in a logical hierarchy.

An example grouping is shown below:

The example above groups the infrastructure into four levels. This results in a tree view in the Groupings Editor with four levels, with rows for each infrastructure object applicable to each level.

As each label is selected, Sysdig Monitor automatically filters out labels for the next selection that no longer fit the hierarchy, to ensure that only logical groupings are created.

Sysdig Monitor automatically organizes all the configured groupings that are inapplicable to the current infrastructure under Inapplicable Groupings.
