Types of views
Tabular views display data about multiple resources, so that you can see large amounts of data at one time. Data is arranged in rows and columns. Each row provides information about the same item (such as a job, workload, transaction, or resource). Each column lists a single field of data about each item. You can scroll through the columns and fields to view all of the data in the view.
Detail views display complete information about a particular element selected from another view. Data is arranged in a page-layout format by using fields that display single pieces of information about the element.
Hybrid views contain specific information at the top and tabular information at the bottom. The top portion of the view is static, but you can scroll through the bottom portion.
Summary views display data that represents multiple resources that are grouped by specific criteria. A summary view appears as a tabular or detail view, but it includes a context field to indicate what the data represents.
Summarization is helpful for:
Grouping a system's similar resources and viewing performance data by groups of resources, especially when a single system image (SSI) context is active
Grouping information about a resource over multiple intervals of historical data and viewing performance trending data
Chart view (available in MainView Explorer only)
Chart views display data in a graphical format. The default chart style uses circular gauges. You can specify other chart styles, including two- or three-dimensional bar charts and pie charts.
Log view (available for MainView Logger only)
Log views display sequential, time-oriented data from the MainView Logger. You cannot use filters to sort log views. However, the log is indexed so that a few records can be retrieved from a vast quantity of records very quickly. While looking at a log view, you can use the LOGPROF command to set the index values.
