4 Connected Pipelines Displays:
- The Sources (indicated by their logos), if any, that use this Destination in a Pipeline.
- The list of connected Pipelines created with this Destination, when you hover on any Source logo. The hover window contains the details of the Pipelines such as the serial number, the name, the Source type, and the status. You can click on the serial number of the Pipeline to view it.
- The status of the Pipeline on the left in the hover window, through a color-coded bar (Green for ACTIVE, Red for FAILED, Yellow for PAUSED).
5 Connected Activations Displays:

- Latency Graph shows the average latency for the Destination across all Pipelines replicating data to it. The graph points denote latency at different points in time.
- Load Graph shows the total Events loaded to the Destination. Each bar represents the Events per Destination load. The bar can display two colors:
Light blue: Represents the historical (free) Events loaded to the Destination.
Dark blue: Represents the incremental (billable) Events loaded to the Destination.
8 Destination Tables List Displays the list of tables across all Sources integrated with the Destination and:
- The number of Events loaded to each table.

- Time of the last data load.

Note: Table view is not applicable for the S3 Destination. Table-level pending Events are not applicable to JDBC Destinations, such as, Postgres, MySQL, MSSQL and Aurora MySQL.

Note: A Warehouse in Activate is the data source from which data is synchronized with a Target object. On the other hand, data is loaded to a Destination from a Source.
