Customize the Chart

This chart can be customized to view the following data by clicking the Edit button at the top-right of the chart. The available data to this chart are as follows:

  • CPU Load
  • Physical Memory
  • Virtual Memory
  • Response Time
  • Statistic Data

Clicking Edit also reveals several self-explanatory options. Clicking Export allows you to export the data to both Excel and HTML formats.

This widget is made up of three sections: the toolbar, the main chart, and the lower chart. This allows you to visualize the selected data by viewing the minimums, maximums, and averages of the data for a selected time period.


You can have the chart show a predetermined time period of data by clicking on any one of the three Zoom buttons; 1 Day, 1 Week, or 1 Month, as highlighted in the above illustration. Alternatively, you can have the chart show a specific date range by dragging the mouse over a small area of the chart, or by typing in specific dates in the From and To fields, also highlighted.

Once you have a time period selected, the lower chart zooms to the starting and ending values of the selected time period. With the lower chart you can zoom in further by fine tuning the view with the sliders, highlighted above. The main view of the chart will display the selected time period between the two sliders of the lower chart.

Moving the mouse over the main chart will reveal a tooltip with more detailed information about the specific time period the mouse is hovering over.

By default, all statistics are shown in the main chart. You can add or remove any statistic from the chart by checking and unchecking any statistic from the legend at the lower left of the widget.
