Generating charts

Charts display a graphical representation of attribute data values. You can report on a data center site, grid node, component, or service.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. Select Support > Grid Topology.
  2. Select grid node > component or service > Reports > Charts.
  3. Select the attribute to report on from the Attribute drop-down list.
  4. To force the Y-axis to start at zero, deselect the Vertical Scaling check box.
  5. To show values at full precision, select the Raw Data checkbox, or to round values to a maximum of three decimal places (for example, for attributes reported as percentages), deselect the Raw Data checkbox.
  6. Select the time period to report on from the Quick Query drop-down list.
    Select the Custom Query option to select a specific time range.
    The chart appears after a few moments. Allow several minutes for tabulation of long time ranges.
  7. If you selected Custom Query, customize the time period for the chart by entering the Start Date and End Date.
    Use the format YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS in local time. Leading zeros are required to match the format. For example, 2017/4/6 7:30:00 fails validation. The correct format is: 2017/04/06 07:30:00.
  8. Click Update.
    A chart is generated after a few moments. Allow several minutes for tabulation of long time ranges. Depending on the length of time set for the query, either a raw text report or aggregate text report is displayed.
  9. If you want to print the chart, right-click and select Print, and modify any necessary printer settings and click Print.
