The Metrics Analysis portlet allows you to analyze resource usage trends for one or more systems. Trends are graphed according to metrics such as CPU, memory, and throughput within a specified time frame.The information is refreshed every 60 seconds.
The Metrics Analysis
view displays a graph with time on the horizontal axis, metric values on the vertical axis, and a different color for each metric plot line. Plot lines show the average metric values as a line and have enhanced interactive features, such as performance envelopes and information balloons that show the actual, minimum, and maximum metric values. A time frame selection list allows you to monitor current usage within the last hour or view usage trends over the last 24 hours, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, or 6 months.
Not all metrics display all of these features. Cumulative metrics, such as Jobs Completed and Applications Completed, do not display performance envelopes, minimum and maximum values, or average values.
The Settings view allows you to select and organize metrics to display, set thresholds, and adjust the vertical axis range for each metric.
