There are two ways to access the WL monitoring dashboard,

1. URL to access monitoring dashboard is - http://servername:portnumber/console/dashboard
Example - http://fmwwlsrv1:7031/console/dashboard , where weblogic admin server is running on fmwwlsrv1 server on port 7031


2. You can also access the monitoring console by following the below path,

Access admin console (http://edolraclin1:7031/console) > click on your domain (IDMDomain)> click on 'Home' tab > click on "Monitoring Dashboard" under chart and graphs option on right hand side > Select 'JVM Runtime Heap' option on left hand side to monitor heap usages > select the graph type you want from right hand corner option > click on run button to monitor.

By default it will monitor heap usages in every 30 minutes of interval and will plot the graph. In the above screenshot, orange bar showing total heap allocated and blue showing total used one.
