s-Dashboard is a browser-based interface for viewing s-Server schema objects: streams, views, or tables graphically. Once s-Dashboard is installed in your environment, you access it by pointing your browser to a web address along the lines of localhost:5595. Other users may also send you links to dashboards that they have created.

Dashboards are web pages that contain multiple panels, each of which can connect to a different stream, view, or table. Each panel contains a visualization. These are flexible modes of viewing your data, including simple tables, points on a map, line plots, bar graphs, area maps, and so on. These all use column-row combinations to plot data. Panels can be changed in terms of both layout and data input. Dashboards will be most useful for streaming data, as you will be able to see data changing in real time.

The dashboard below, for example, shows a line chart which displays bank card transactions over a shifting window of time.

By  using adjustable panels, s-Dashboard lets you view multiple such objects at once. Each dashboard can be laid out with multiple panels, in combinations that you can change by adjusting panel layout.

The figure below shows two dashboards side by side showing the same data.
