The Custom Graphs feature is used to generate individual and multiple graphs based on resources monitored by Infrastructure Management. Using this feature, you can select a combination of monitors and attributes, and correlate data effectively. This feature gives you more control over information than the Show Graph option on the Tools menu.

Customizing graphs helps you to:

  • Select the type of graphing format that works best for you. 
  • Create graphs that show data from an individual monitor type or multiple attributes. 

Create graphs for multiple monitors showing a single attribute but view the statistics from multiple sites. 

Custom graphs that focus on an individual monitor enable you to chart thresholds and other indicators, such as Baseline, Peak, and so on. For more information, see Creating an individual monitor graph or multiple monitor graphs.

Multiple data type graphs enable you to compare data across sites but do not allow you to chart thresholds or indicators, because they relate only to a single attribute. For more information, see Creating an individual monitor graph or multiple monitor graphs.

You can select the type of graphing format that works best for you. Click the Custom Graphs icon in the Views & Graphs drawer in the navigation pane to select from the following options before creating your graph:

  • Line Graph 
  • Area Graph 
  • X-Y Graph 
  • Top N Graph 
  • Pie Graph 
  • Dial Gauge Graph

Note

  • When a graph is generated, it displays only monitors accessible by the user. Select the Attributes & Indicators tab to view and use the Tools menu. The options available reflect the associated permissions. 
  • Custom graphs are authorization-aware; the graphs and any actions available from the Tools menu reflect user access privileges and permissions.
  • Graphs use condensed data by default if the selected time range is greater than 24 hours. Condensed data is polled on each hour and is the data point for the entire hour. For example, if there is a data point at 11 A.M, it indicates data between 11 A.M and noon. To indicate this point in a graph, the line is connected from 11 A.M to noon. In case a schedule starts at 11:30 A.M, the graph connects the line between 11 A.M and noon because the data point for this is also for the data between 11 A.M to 11.30 AM.
