How do I create custom charts?

Custom charts enable you to analyze any combination of monitoring metrics directly on your dashboard.

To create a custom chart

  1. Select Create custom chart from the navigation menu. Alternatively, you can select the Build custom chart tile in the Tile catalog.

  2. On the Build a custom chart page, select metrics related to the services, applications, processes, or hosts you want to monitor. For this example, we'll select the metric Applications – Actions per session.
    Note: Only up to 2 metrics per custom measure can be added.

  3. Click the Build chart button.

  4. Give your chart an intuitive name.

  5. Adjust the aggregation and display options for the metric you've selected. To do this, click the metric name, as shown below.

  6. Once you've configured the metric, you can optionally add additional metrics by clicking the Add metric button.

  7. Once you're satisfied with your new chart, click the Pin to dashboard button to add the chart to your dashboard.
