The health chart widget displays Health, Risk, Efficiency, or custom metric charts for selected objects. You use the widget to compare the status of similar objects based on the same value.

How the Health Chart Widget Works

You can add the health chart widget to one or more custom dashboards and configure it to display data that is important to the dashboard users. The information that it displays depends on how the widget is configured.

If the widget is configured to display Health, Risk, or Efficiency, the chart values are based on the generated alerts for the selected alert type for the selected objects.

If the widget is configured to display custom metrics, chart values are based on the metric value for the configured time period.

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.

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.
