Configuring the Golden model results template

With the Golden model results template, you can display the charts that are generated from the last run of a model that is in Golden state. Use this template to create a custom view or to add a page to a custom view.

You can use the following models in this template:

  • Time-forecasting model: Generates the future behavior trend for one or more performance metrics by observing their past behavior captured over time.
  • Extrapolation model: Generates an estimate of metric values as a function of other metrics. Through an initial correlation analysis of existing data, extrapolation estimates the value of a particular metric when the value of another metric changes.
  • Queueing network model: Generates the future system utilization, throughput, queue length, and response time based on the impact of business drivers that are running on systems. With this model, simulate the impact of a change in the value of an entity (system or business driver) on the metrics.

Before you begin

Make sure that the following tasks are complete:

  1. The model (time-forecasting, extrapolation, or queueing network) that you want to select in the template is created.
  2. The selected model is in the Golden state.

To configure the template

The following video (7:36) illustrates the process of configuring a custom view page by using the Golden Model Results template.


This video describes the functionality of TrueSight Capacity Optimization, but it is valid for BMC Helix Continuous Optimization too.

  1. Open the view page with the Golden model results template:

  2. In the view page, specify a title for the page.

  3. In the Golden Model field, select the required scenario of the Golden model.

  4. Depending on the selected golden model, specific filter label field (Business Driver Filter Label or System Filter Label) is displayed. If required, specify a different label for the entity filter. For example, if the selected golden model does not have associated business drivers, then the corresponding filter field is not displayed. The label that you specify in the filter field is displayed on the output view page.

    • You can use the filter label to manage the behavior of the filters across different pages of a view. For example, to retain the System filter value while navigating across different pages of a view, specify the same name for System Filter Label in the required pages of the view. If you do not want to retain the filter values across different pages of a view, you can specify different names for the filter label in different pages.
    • None of the page filters are available when you select a queueing network golden model. Four charts are always displayed for this model irrespective of the number of entities that the model contains. If a model has multiple entities, then their values are displayed in the same set of charts.
  5. Click Save.
  6. The custom view page is created with the defined configuration. You can filter the charts in the view page by applying the appropriate filter such as domain, tag, and system. 

To add custom text

(Optional) To add custom text, click Add custom text. To update an existing custom text, click Change in the custom text panel. You can add descriptions, instructions, links, or any other textual information for the users of the view page. Use markdown tags to format the content of custom text and to add images, links, and tables. For example, add a description such as “Displays performance metrics for Payroll application”, or a label such as "NY Datacenter - Capacity Metrics".

  • Title: Type the required title for the custom text.

  • Always expand custom text: Select to display the custom text as expanded or collapsed.
  • Editor: Type the required content and format it by using markdown tags such as * to create an unordered list and # to increase the font size. A preview of the formatted content is displayed in the Preview section.
  • Insert image: Enable you to add an image. The selected image is displayed in the Preview section. 

The following image illustrates the preview of the commonly-used standard markdown language tags.
