You can create a custom set of metrics to display the widgets. You can configure one or more files that define different sets of metrics for a particular adapter and object types so that the supported widgets are populated based on the configured metrics and selected object type.

How the Metric Configuration Works

From the Metric Configuration page, you create an XML file that displays a set of metrics at a supported widget. The widgets are Metric Chart, Property List, Rolling View Chart, Scoreboard, Sparkline Chart, and Topology Graph. To use the metric configuration, you must set the widget Self Provider to Off and create a widget interaction with a provider widget.
