In time series charts, the
currently selected chart displays two sets of controls by default that
you can use to pan and zoom in and out of the metrics data displayed in
- Chart overview — the horizontal bar appearing immediately below
the chart that indicates the proportion of metrics data currently
visible in the chart in relation to the whole set of data that has
been generated since the chart has been active. The portion of data
currently visible in the chart is highlighted in the overview in a
darker shade of grey. This highlighted region functions as a scroll
bar, which you can click and drag to pan through all the metrics data
in the chart.
- Pan and zoom buttons — a set of buttons that you can choose to pan
the chart to the left or right, allowing you to see earlier or later
data values, or to zoom in or out of the time interval that is
displayed in the chart.
For information about how to zoom in and out of data, see Zoom in and out of metrics
data in a chart.
Using the Preferences dialog box, you can configure whether these
controls are displayed:
- In all time series charts in a view
- In only the currently selected time series chart
The chart overview and pan and zoom buttons are not available in
gauge chart types. For information about configuring the availability of
these controls, see Set dashboard
