Before you begin
Open the view containing the chart you want to copy. For more information, see Display views.
Note: Charts can be copied within or to custom views only.
Copying a chart can be useful if you have a given metric that you want to plot in additional chart types. For example, if you have metric with several data points graphed in a line chart and you want to see the same metric values displayed in a radial gauge, you can copy the line plot chart to an empty location in the current view. A new chart is created, which you can set as a Radial Gauge chart type. The set of data values for the metric is duplicated in the new chart, but in chart that provides a useful complementary display. Copying a chart to a different view can provide a convenient starting point for creating a new view.
Charts can also be moved to the same or a different view. For details, see Move a chart to the same or a different view.
The target view to which the chart has been copied is displayed, and the copied chart is highlighted.
When you copy a chart to the same or a different view, the chart becomes immediately available for use. For information, see Work with charts in the Monitoring Dashboard.
