Searching for entities and metrics
TrueSight Capacity Optimization has a built-in search engine that enables you to search for entities and metrics in an easy way.
The search engine can be accessed in two ways:
- Using the search box at the top right side of your screen.
From the Quick analysis
page, by clicking the Search tab.
You can conduct the search on all systems, business drivers, domains and works or on all data in TrueSight Capacity Optimization, regardless of the domain you are performing the search from.
For a basic search, type the relevant keywords in the form and click Search. All objects or time series that match all search terms are returned.
If the Administrator has enabled Series search, you can search on metric series in the visible domains. By default, search is conducted on entities and works only. For more information, see Configuring the default formats in the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console
You can also limit the search to specific TrueSight Capacity Optimization objects such as systems using filter tags. For more information, see Search syntax. For more information, seeAs you type, the search box automatically suggests the available filters, as shown in the figure.
Clicking on the name of an item in the list of results you can access its detail page for further investigation.
From the search result page, you can perform a quick analysis on selected time series clicking on the Quick analysis. icon; this will take you to the Quick analysis tab which displays charts and details for the selected time series. From there, you can go back to the search results accessing the Search tab and select more series to add to the analysis. For more information, see

- The TrueSight Capacity Optimization search engine works using a search index that is continuously updated; if you add a new object (e.g. a new system), it may take a few minutes for it to appear in search results.
- Analysis are indexed by the search engine when they are executed. If you do not see an analysis in the search results, try running it again.
