To include monitors in dashlet that are not directly associated with blueprint groups

In a dashlet, you can view the information even if the selected groups or any of its child groups has only devices added to it. In such cases, dashlet extracts monitor instances of each device and processes it to find the top and bottom performer.

If you do not want to process monitors associated to devices from blueprint groups, then run the following command:

tssh properties set tsps.topbottomperformance.dashlet.blueprint.include.devicemonitors false reload

By default, the flag is enabled.
