PA Custom View Limitation

When creating a custom view, I select "Add Chart".  After selecting the type of chart and the counter, There is a screen where I can select all objects or a limited number, maximum value of 10.  Is there a hidden option available to increase this to say 20 or 25?  I have a customer with a larger environment and 10 isn't enough when using qtree counters (several thousand qtrees).

Thanks,

Sean.

Yes, use the dfm options set perfMaxObjectInstancesInBarChart=XXX command.

I set that and the NMC UI still only lets me select up to 10.

Re: PA Custom View Limitation

Hi,

This is a bug in NMC, can you please raise a burt for this.

One more option is available in same page i.e by selecting "Show all the objects " ( In your case it shows all the qtrees). this is just workaround.

Re: PA Custom View Limitation

As a workaround, you may use 'dfm perf view chart add' CLI. This CLI allows you to specify the exact number of instances you want to add.

[root@wills ~]# dfm perf view chart add help
