The Rolling View Chart widget cycles through selected metrics at an interval that you define and shows one metric graph at a time. Miniature graphs, which you can expand, appear for all selected metrics at the bottom of the widget.

How the Rolling View Chart Widget Works

The Rolling View Chart widget shows a full chart for one selected metric at a time. Miniature graphs for the other selected metrics appear at the bottom of the widget. You can click a miniature graph to see the full graph for that metric, or set the widget to rotate through all selected metrics at an interval that you define. The key in the graph indicates the maximum and minimum points on the line chart.

The widget might be included on any of your custom dashboards. In the left pane, click Home to see your configured dashboards.

Rolling View Chart Widget Options

The toolbar at the top of the Rolling View Chart widget contains icons that you can use to change the view of the graphs.

Table 1. Rolling View Chart Widget Toolbar Icons



Trend Line

Shows or hides the line and data points that represents the metric trend. The trend line filters out metric noise along the timeline by plotting each data point relative to the average of its adjoining data points.

Dynamic Thresholds

Shows or hides the calculated dynamic threshold values for a 24-hour period.

Show Entire Period Dynamic Thresholds

Shows or hides dynamic thresholds for the entire time period of the graph.


Shows or hides anomalies. Time periods when the metric violates a threshold are shaded. Anomalies are generated when a metric crosses a dynamic or static threshold, either above or below.

Zoom to Fit

Changes all graphs to show the entire time period and value range.

Click this icon and click and drag the hierarchy to show different parts of the hierarchy.

Show Data Values

After you click the Show data point tips icon to retrieve the data, click this icon and point to a graphed data point to show its time and exact value. In non-split mode, you can hover over a metric in the legend to show the full metric name, the names of the adapter instances (if any) that provide data for the resource to which the metric belongs, the current value, and the normal range. If the metric is currently alarming, the text color in the legend changes to yellow or red, depending on your color scheme. Click a metric in the legend to highlight the metric in the display. Clicking the metric again toggles its highlighted state.

Date Controls

Use the date selector to limit the data that appears in each chart to the time period you are examining.
