If the statistic is a partitioned statistic, you can select the partition to view. You can continue to select a partition of a partition, also known as drilling down.
Select the Visualization Actions menu.
Select the Partition option.
Select the partitions list to expand the list.
Select the partition you want to view.
The following figure shows the Partition option on the Visualization Actions menu.
Figure 2 Partition Option on the Visualization Actions Menu
Selecting the Partition option causes the available partitions list to display in collapsed form. To expand the list, select the collapsed list where indicated.
Figure 3 Sample Partition List Selections
In the following figure, the user has selected the cpu partition from the list in the previous figure. The graph shows one line for each CPU in the system. In both cases the statistic being shown is the percentage of CPU time used. The previous graph showed the percentage of CPU time used by the kernel, by users, and by interrupts, and the percentage of CPU time stolen. The following graph shows the percentage of CPU time used by each CPU.
Figure 4 Viewing a Different Partition of the Data
The visualization also gained a new menu that enables you to rollback or save partitioning changes.
Figure 5 Partition Menu Options
When you select a point on a line graph or an item in a graph legend for a visualization that is showing a partitioned statistic, the drill-down menu is displayed.
In the following figure, the user selected “kernel” in the legend.
Figure 6 Drill Down Menu Options
In the previous figure, the user selected “Drill Down on” to display the choices shown in the following figure. As soon as the user selected “user,” the graph changed to show only the user part of the mode partition of the CPU utilization statistic, and the partitioning menu displayed.
Figure 7 Drill Down On Options
The user selected Done on the dialog shown in the previous figure, and then took one of the following paths to drill down further:
Selected Partition from the Visualization Actions menu, and selected “cpu” from the list of available partitions.
Selected “user” in the visualization legend, selected “Drill Down on ‘user’” from the Drill Down menu that displayed, and selected “cpu” from the list of available partitions.
Figure 8 Second Level of Drill Down
The partitioning menu name changed to show a “2” because the user has drilled down two times and can undo two levels of drill down:
Drilled down on user from the display of all parts of the mode partition.
Drilled down on the cpu partition.
The preceding figure shows the percentage of CPU time that is user time on each CPU in the system.
