Panel control buttons are available on the various top level Hosts views and drill-down sub-views. The type of panel control button will differ slightly depending on the view and type of chart displayed. Here are all the buttons available and descriptions:
Time Window – This is not an actionable button, it simply indicates the amount of time displayed for the rendered metrics. When in live or realtime mode, ‘Last 10 Seconds’ is displayed.
Zoom Control – Use the ‘+’ to zoom to a higher time resolution, ‘-‘ for lower resolution. For example if the Time Window shows ‘5 minutes’, clicking ‘+’ once will zoom to a 3 minute resolution. Click the middle button to go back to the default time display.
Field Filter – The filter bar button opens an extra line above the view where you can enter a text string to restrict the contents displayed. For example, enter ‘10-4-200’ to list instances starting only with those IP addresses.
Create Alert – The create alert button opens the New Alert configuration window. In a top-level hosts view the bell can also be shaded indicating an alert has previously been created, in which case the ‘Configure Alerts’ window will open allowing you to review and modify the existing alert(s).
Pin to Dashboard – Use ‘Pin to Dashboard’ to save a frequently used view and its configuration to a dashboard. Enter the name of a new or existing dashboard to copy the selected panel to and either click ‘Pin and Open’ to copy the panel and go to your dashboard or, select ‘Pin IT’ to only copy the panel to your dashboard and remain on the current tab. If there are existing dashboards, they will be listed as a pulldown menu under the name field.
Delete Panel – This button removes the panel from the current tab or dashboard.
Collapse Panel – Click this icon to roll-up the top-level hosts view to save screen real-estate for the larger and more complex sub-views.
