Customize metric display properties

Before you begin

Add metrics to a chart

You can customize the following properties for the way in which each metric is displayed in a chart:

To customize a metric's display properties:

  1. From the View List, open the view containing one or more charts whose metric display properties you want to change.
  2. Select the metric legend menu and choose Properties.

    The Metric Properties dialog box is displayed.

  3. Change one or more of the following display properties, as appropriate:
    • Name
    • Marker symbol
    • Marker color


The customized metric display properties you have made to a chart are automatically persisted and in effect only for your user account and only in the current domain. They are available to you the next time you launch the Monitoring Dashboard. Note, however, that polled metric values that are displayed in built-in and custom views are not persisted after you close the Monitoring Dashboard window. For more information, see Using the Monitoring Dashboard.
