Issue/Introduction

I have an urgent need to pull some performance reports and I cannot find how to see CPU utilization in chart form.

Environment

Component: IMPOLL

Resolution

To quickly create a CPU metric dashboard  for a device you can do the following:

1. Create a new dashboard
2. Add the IM On-Demand/Multi-Metric Trend Report
3. Now edit the IM On-Demand/Multi-Metric Trend Report view
  • Change "View Type" to Table per Item with Multiple Metrics
  • Change "Context" to Fixed
  • Add the appropriate group(s)
  • Change "Metric Calculate Level" to by Component
  • In the "Metrics to Include" choose metrics from the CPU folder
4. Save the changes
