Issue/Introduction

Table Views are useful to provide multiple metrics to review for a common function. For example different Capacity or Usage metrics for a group of Partition Component elements.

These Views are most useful when a specific metric column can be set as the sort preference and the sort order is configurable. Which View provides this functionality?

On-Demand Multi-Metric Table reports don't provide a repeatable sorting configuration. It can be sorted but it loses the sorting selections every time it the report runs.

Environment

All supported CA Performance Management releases

Resolution

Use the "IM Table (Top)" View in a Dashboard for this report.

It can be configured with the same columns in your On-Demand sample but it allows the View to be configured to sort on a particular column every time.
