Configuring Charts

You use configuration options to change the chart type, the object type you want to chart, and the number of objects that are represented on the chart. For time series charts, you can also select a time range and enable time series data capture.

Data can be accumulated so that when you perform a time series search, a cache of data is available to display data for the previous time period. After you enable time series data capture for a selected parameter, an asterisk (*) is displayed next to the parameter in the Value to Graph list box.


Charts are not displayed when you view events or flows in Real Time (streaming) mode. To display charts, you must access the Log Activity or Network Activity tab and perform a grouped search that specifies a time range.
