Configure and use a single-value visualization in Dynatrace
This visualization shows one metric as single-value chart or tile, and merges all dimensions to a single aggregate.
Select a different metric
By default, this visualization shows the first metric of a multi-metric query.
To select a different metric from a multi-metric query, select the letter next to the metric you want to visualize. In this example, you would change the selection from A (
CPU usage %) to B (
Memory used %).
You must select
Single valueto display this type of visualization.
Show trend optional
Determines whether the tile displays the trend (based on the first and last datapoints of the selected timeframe). In this example, there are two identical tiles, one with Show trend turned off, and then the same tile with Show trend turned on (trending down).
Show sparkline optional
Determines whether the tile displays a sparkline. In this example, there are two identical tiles, one with Show sparkline turned off, and then the same tile with Show sparkline turned on.
Threshold background optional
Determines whether the threshold color is reflected in the background color of the tile. In this example, there are two identical tiles, one with Threshold background turned off, and then the same tile with Threshold background turned on.
Last value optional
In certain cases, you need to see the last reported value for a metric, not the total aggregate over the time span, to help you understand the current state. To do this, turn on Last value.
Rename a metric
You can change the name of a metric as it is displayed in the chart legend and chart pop-ups. The query definition retains the metric's original name.
To rename a metric
In the Visual settings section, select Edit (pen icon) for the metric you want to rename.
Edit the name, and then select the checkmark to save the new name.
To enhance your visualizations, you can set thresholds that are reflected in your visualization.
To set thresholds
In the Thresholds section, enter threshold values
Adjust threshold colors optional
Tile text color is adjusted automatically for contrast with the background threshold color.
Hide or show threshold colors
To hide or show threshold colors without deleting the threshold settings, in the Thresholds section, select the eye.
