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 value to display this type of visualization.
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).
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.
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.
The fold transformation combines a data points list (a timeseries: a collection of data points over the time period) into a single data point.
- The default fold transformation is
Auto, which automatically selects the most appropriate time aggregation based on the metric.
- You can manually override
Autowith any of the following:
- If you need to see the last reported value for a metric (rather than an aggregation), select
Per-metric visual settings
The Visual settings section also displays visualization options per metric selected for the query.
Rename a metric
You can change the name of a metric as it is displayed on the chart and in the chart legend. The query definition retains the metric's original name.
- In the Visual settings section, select for the metric you want to rename.
- Edit the name, and then select the checkmark to save the new name.
Use the Format setting to configure the number of decimal places displayed for the selected metric.
None= No formatting
Auto= Dynatrace selects an appropriate format
- Other selections specify the number of decimal places to display:
For example, where
None would display
Auto would display
To enhance your visualizations, you can set thresholds that are reflected in your visualization.
This example shows a Graph visualization of
CPU usage % (
builtin:host.cpu.usage) before and after adding thresholds. The effect is similar for other visualizations with thresholds.
The thresholds also affect how the tiles are displayed on your dashboards.
To set thresholds
In the Thresholds section, enter threshold values
Adjust threshold colors optional
Hide or show threshold colors
To hide or show threshold colors without deleting the threshold settings, in the Thresholds section, select .
