Convert values in data transformations for SAM component monitors

Some SAM component monitors offer an option to mathematically convert returned values through the use of data transformations.

Select the Convert Value option to expand fields where you can select either a common function or enter a custom formula. The Custom Conversion option provides flexibility through basic arithmetic operators (+, -, *, /), plus built-in mathematical functions for more advanced conversions. For a list of functions, see Available data transformations for SAM monitors in online help.

Here is an example that uses predefined formula, XtoMega, to convert bytes to megabytes.

When the formula is applied, the returned value transforms from 318767104 bytes to 304 MB, an easier value to read.

Click Retrieve Current Value to test the application monitor. Note that data transformation will be skipped and the original statistic value will be returned.
