You use the health chart widget configuration options to customize each instance of the widget that you add to your dashboards.

How the Health Chart Widget Configuration Options Work

You edit the health chart widget after you add it to the dashboard. The changes you make to the options create a custom widget with the selected charts.

The charts are based either on Health, Risk, or Efficiency alert status, or you can base them on a selected metric. You can include a single object, multiple objects, or all objects of a selected type.

Where You Find Health Chart Widget Configuration Options

To customize the data that appears in the dashboard widget, click Content in the left pane, and click Dashboards. On the Dashboards toolbar, click the plus sign to add a dashboard or the pencil to edit the selected dashboard. In the Dashboard workspace, on the left, click Widget List, and drag a widget to the right pane of the dashboard. On the title bar of the selected widget, click the pencil to access the configuration options.

  • Off. You configure other widgets to provide the objects to the widget using the dashboard widget interactions options.

Determines if the widget displays data for the selected objects, child objects, or parent objects.

If you select Children or Parents, the selected objects do not appear in the widget. Only the related objects.

You can order them based on score or name, and in ascending or descending order.

Pagination number

Number of charts that appears on a page.

If you prefer scrolling through the charts, select a higher number. If you prefer to page through the results, select a lower number.

Period Length

Amount of time that is displayed in the chart.

Metric

Determines the source of the data.

  • Health, Risk, or Efficiency. The displayed charts are based on one of these alert badges.

  • Custom. The displayed charts are based on the selected metric and use either alert symptom state colors or the selected custom color. If you apply custom colors, type the value in each box that is the highest or lowest value that should be that color.

For example, if you select Custom, define the metric as Badge | Anomaly, and set Yellow Bound as 1, Orange as 10, and Red as 20, the charts display the changes from yellow to orange or red based on the anomaly metric values at each point in time.

Object Tag Tree

Object or object types for which to display charts.

If you select a tag with more than one object, the widget displays charts for each object. If you select more than one tag, the widget displays charts only for the objects that are members of all the tags.

If you select two tags an your widget does not display any charts, there were no common objects between the two tags.
