Configure and use a table visualization in Dynatrace
Displays the selected metrics as a table, one metric per column.
Change selection of metrics
Your table can display any selection of metrics from a multi-metric query. The letter next to each metric in your query toggles display of that metric on or off.
In this example, you would change the selection from A (
CPU usage % only) to both A and B (
CPU usage % and
Memory used %).
- Visualization required—you must select
Tableto display this type of visualization.
- 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.
Per-metric visual settings
Table column names are the same as the metric names by default. You can change the name of table column headings. The query definition retains the metric's original name.
To rename a column
In the Visual settings section, select Edit (pen icon) for the metric/column 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.
A table can have as many thresholds as there are metrics displayed on the table. This example has five metrics, five columns, each with a different threshold definition. Link cell color to thresholds is turned on.
Tile text color is adjusted automatically for contrast with the background threshold color.
Set table thresholds
To make per-metric threshold settings
- optional In the Threshold section, select Link cell color to thresholds
When this is turned on, the background of every cell in the table is colored according to threshold.
When this is turned off, only the cell data is colored.
- Make per-metric threshold settings.
Select a metric name
Set the threshold values for that metric
optional Adjust threshold colors
Select Add threshold as needed to add thresholds for another metric.
Hide or show threshold colors
To hide or show threshold colors (per threshold definition) without deleting the threshold settings, in the Thresholds section, select the eye icon for that metric.
Delete threshold settings
To delete the threshold settings for a metric, in the Thresholds section, select the trash can icon for that metric.
