In the Administrator interface, select Reports -> Dashboard Graphs.
Select a dashboard graphs category from the list of Select Dashboard Graph Type options.
All graphs in the selected category display in the graphs list.
Click New to display the Create Dashboard Graph page and enter a Graph Name.
Choose a unique, meaningful name because graphs are added to dashboards by name.
Select a Registry: IDM or SAMPLE.
The sample data selection is provided for you to familiarize yourself with the system. As sample data is not available for all tracked events, this selection is most useful for demos and when experimenting with the various graph options. Delete sample data prior to going to a production environment.
The set of tracked events that use sample data differs from the events that are actually tracked.
Select a Tracked Event type from the list.
An event is a system characteristic, such as memory usage, or an aggregation of events, such as resource operations, whose historical values are tracked and displayed visually as graphs or charts.
Tracked events for the IDM registry are:
Provisioner Execution Counts. Tracks how many provisioner operations occurred (by operation type).
Provisioner Execution Duration. Tracks the duration of each provisioner operation (by operation type).
Resource Operation Count. Tracks the number of resource operations.
Resource Operation Duration. Tracks the duration of a resource operation.
Workflow Duration. Tracks how long it takes to execute a workflow.
Workflow Execution Count. Tracks the number of times each workflow is executed.
Select a Time Scale from the list.
This option controls how often data is aggregated (for example, one hour) and how often it is retained (for example, one month). The system stores tracked event data for progressively larger time scales to allow both a detailed, current view of the system as well as an understanding of historical trends.
Select a Metric from the list.
A metric (count or average) will be selected by default, depending on the selected tracked event. Each graph displays a single metric. The available metrics depend on the selected tracked event.
Possible metrics include:
Count. The total number of times the event occurred in the time interval
Average. The arithmetic mean of the event values for the time interval
Maximum. The maximum event value for the time interval
Minimum. The minimum event value for the time interval
Histogram. The separate counts for discrete ranges of event values for the time interval
Select Show count as from the list.
The graph count is shown either as a raw total or scaled by various time scales.
Select a Graph Type from the list.
This controls how the tracked event data is displayed. The available graph types depend on the selected tracked event and can include line graphs, bar charts, and pie charts.
Specify a Base Dimension (optional).
Select from the following list:
Resource Name. If selected, all values for the dimension are included in the graph. Deselect this option to choose individual values of the dimension to include in the graph.
Server Instance. If selected, all values for the dimension are included in the graph. Deselect this option to choose individual values of the dimension to include in the graph.
Operation Type. If selected, all values for the dimension are included in the graph. Deselect this option to choose individual values of the dimension to include in the graph.
After you select the dimension, the page refreshes to display a graph.
Enter text in the Graph Options field to produce a subtitle under the main title of the graph (optional).
Select Advanced Graph Options (optional).
Use this option if you want to specify the following:
