User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Description
Configuration tab
  • Color. The color assigned to the selected measurement.

  • Scale. The relationship between the y-axis and the graph's actual value.

    • Autoscale. Automatically scales the measurement by calculating the best ratio for displaying the graph. For some graphs, this option is not available.

    • Default value: Autoscale
      Example: A scale of 1 indicates that the measurement's value is the value of the y-axis. If you select a scale of 10, you must multiply the y-axis value by 10 to obtain the true value of the measurement.
  • Show / Hide. The resource selected in the legend is shown/hidden in the graph.

  • By default, all resource measurements are shown in the graph. To show only a selected measurement, right-click the measurement, and select Show Only Selected.

    Note: Alternatively right-click a measurement in the graph legend and select Show/Hide.
