Maps page in the KVM Overview view

The Treemap view is a space-filling visualization view that displays data in a hierarchical structure. It displays hierarchical, or tree-structured, data as a set of nested rectangles. It is especially effective in revealing attributes of nodes using size and color coding.

To access the Hyper-V Maps view in the TrueSight console, in the navigation panel, select > Capacity Views > Virtualization > Hyper-V > Maps tab. 

Reading the tree map

Each outer rectangle represents the parent entity and the inner rectangles are the child entities, as shown in the following image:

The size of the cells denotes the capacity size on that entity.

The color of the cells denotes the usage percentage of that entity, with white indicating no usage and red indicating high usage. The color legend is displayed at the top of the tree map, as shown in the following image:

To view entities with free resources

By default, the tree map does not show the free resources of entities. To view the free resources that are available, you must change the map  layout.

In the Tree map view, click next to Map Layout and click Map Layout with Free Resource.

The tree map shows the free resources, as denoted by the white color:

To view details of an entity

You can drill down further into each entity for more details. To view the details, do the following:

Click the entity.

A Details popup window opens. It lists the Name, Type, Utilization (%) and Size of the entity, along with Related Information links.

Similarly, you can view the details of each child entity within a parent entity.

To view only one entity on the screen

You can focus only on one entity at a time and not display the others. To do this, do one of the following:

  • Double-click that entity.
  • Click the parent cell. In the Details popup window that opens, under Related Information, click the Drill Down link.

Only the selected entity is displayed on the screen.

Navigate back to the parent entity

In the child entity page, the navigation path from the source Treemap view is listed at the the top-left of the heatmap. Click the parent entity name in the listed path to go to that entity.

Using time filters in Treemap views

You can view data for predefined defined time periods. By default, data for the Last 30 days is shown. To view data for a different time period, use the available time filters.

In the Treemap view, click the action menu  next to the time filter and select a time period as shown in the following image:

You can select from the following options:

  • Yesterday
  • Last 7 days
  • Last 30 days

Data for the selected time period is displayed.
