Creating an analysis

You can create analyses by using the analysis wizard, the quick analysis tool, or you can create them manually.

This topic provides steps to perform the following tasks

To create a new analysis using the wizard

  1. Access the Workspace section of the TrueSight Capacity Optimization Console.
  2. Select the domain for which you want to analyze data.
  3. Click Works to access the domain's Works folder.
  4. Click Add and select Add analysis from the menu.
  5. Follow the wizard to specify the analysis properties.

    Welcome

    This is a preliminary step. Click Next to continue.

    Note: The option Skip wizard and continue using the analysis editor allows you to skip the wizard and go to the advanced analysis editor; for more information, see Manually creating an analysis.

    Entity filter

    Select the entities to analyze from the following options:

    • All systems/business drivers in container domain (that is, the domain in which the analysis is created).
    • All systems/business drivers in container domain and its subdomains
    • Use a custom entity filter. Choose from: 
      • All entities in container domain
      • All entities in container domain and its subdomains
        For more information, see Managing entity filters.
    • Use a composition of entity filters
    Analysis type

    Select the type of analysis that you want to create. The available analysis types depend on the entities (or entity filters) selected in the previous step. The analysis types are detailed in Analyzing domain data.

    TemplateSelect the analysis template to quickly create an analysis by selecting the required metrics. Template groups and templates listed in this step are based on the system types in the selected domain and the entity filter associated with the selected domain.
    • Template group: Select the required template group from the list.
    • Template: Select the required template from the list.
    • Template description: Each template is briefly described when selected. For more information, see Analyzing domain data.
    • Metrics used by template: Displays the metrics that are used by the selected template.
    Time resolution

    Set the time resolution for the analysis, that is, the level of detail at which data will be aggregated over time.

    Time filter

    Select the time filter for the analysis. You can select an existing time filter or create a custom one.

    If the selected entities only contain data for a limited time period, the wizard informs you about it so that you can choose the most suitable filter.

    For more information about time filters, see Filters.

    Custom time filter

    Note: This step appears only if you chose to specify a custom time filter in the previous step.

    Select the desired time period for the analysis based on the hint provided by the wizard in the previous step; click Advanced to display additional filtering options.

    For more information about time filters, see Filters.

    Name

    By default, the analysis is created using a standard name that summarizes the key information specified (for example, Estimation Utilization - DAY).

    You can choose if you want to run the analysis immediately, schedule it for execution, or continue editing it with the analysis editor, that lets you modify the options pre-configured by the analysis template.

    Summary

    Click Finish to create the analysis. The analysis is created and runs as per the schedule selected in the earlier step.

  6. Click Finish.

The new analysis is now visible in the Works folder of the selected domain.

To create a new analysis using the quick analysis tool

  1. Access the Workspace > All Domains section of the TrueSight Capacity Optimization Console.
  2. Perform one of the following actions:
    • Locate and click the domain, system, business driver, or metric for which you want to analyze data.
    • Locate the resource metric that you want to analyze, by accessing the Metrics tab in the detail page of an entity, or by using the Search tool.
  3. Click Quick analysis.
  4. Follow the procedure detailed in Using the quick analysis tool.

Note

If you create analyses by using the wizard, quick analyses are not permanently stored by default.
