    The Monitors - Performance overview dashlet displays the performance overview of the metrics data collected for the selected monitor types. You can choose to focus on either a single metric analysis or multiple metrics comparison. The resultant graph displays as shown in this figure.

    Dashlet requirements

     At least one instance of a TrueSight Infrastructure Manager server must be registered with the Presentation Server for this dashlet template to be available.

    Configuring the dashlet

    You can configure this dashlet when you  add or edit a dashboard . Use one of the following procedures, based on whether you want to do a single metric analysis or multimetric comparison.

     

      1. Click Add Dashlet and select the Monitors - Performance overview dashlet.
      2. Click the Configure Dashlet  icon.

      3. (Optional) To enter a meaningful and descriptive Title for the dashlet, click on the  link. The field becomes editable and you can enter a title. Alternatively, click the  link to use the default name.

        Note

        This title is a dynamic title based on the selected properties. However, this dynamic title may not match with the applied Global Filter Time Period after you upgrade from TrueSight Presentation Server 10.0. to 10.1.

      4. From the Focus list, select the Single Metric Analysis.

         The default is Single Metric Analysis.

      5. From the Type list, select either Line Graph or Area Graph.
        The default is Line Graph. Area graphs are specialized line graphs and plot only single instance and single attribute selections. Indicators do not apply to area graphs.
      6. From the Refresh Rate list, select a frequency for refreshing the chart view.
        The default is 5 minutes.
      7. From the Selected Monitors, click the  link to add monitors. 

        A search window is displayed. The link becomes a  link.

      8. Select a BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management, Group, and Monitor Type from the list.

        The Monitor part shows the absolute path, only when Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is enabled under User Preferences.

        For example, 

        If Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is not enabled, the Monitor path is displayed as Health AT A Glance::Health At A Glance:System Paging

        If Show absolute path for the Monitor Instances is enabled, the Monitor path is displayed as Health AT A Glance::Windows Operating System/Health At A Glance:System Paging. Notice the Windows Operating System/Health At A Glance in the path.

      9. Click Done to save the selection or Cancel to cancel the operation.

      10. From the Attribute list, select a single metric for doing analysis.

      11. (Optional) Select one or more Baselines from the listed baselines.
