Adding and managing view groups

Capacity views are categorized based on different technologies into groups called View Groups. As an Administrator, you can create view groups in the TrueSight console.  Use the View groups tab of the Capacity views page to create and manage the view groups. The View groups table lists all view groups currently configured on your system and also shows the parent view groups they fall under. You can also add custom view groups from this page.

To access the View groups page, in the TrueSight console navigation pane, select    >  Administration  > Capacity Views  and click the View groups tab.
