Figure 2-6 Dashboard Settings
Use the layout tab to select the graphs that appear in the dashboard activity area, as defined in the following table.
Note that to reduce the network traffic required to refresh the Dashboard, configure some of the activity graphs as "<empty>".
Use the Thresholds screen to configure the dashboard activity weather icons. The defaults provided are based on heavy workloads, and may not be suitable for your environment.
Figure 2-7 Dashboard Activity Settings
The weather icon that appears on the Dashboard is closest to the threshold value setting for the current activity - measured as a 60 second average. For example, if CPU utilization was at 41%, by default, the Cloudy weather icon would appear because its threshold is 40% (closest to the actual activity). Select the Custom radio button to configure thresholds and be sure to configure them in the order they appear on the screen.
