Basic Chart Types

The Basic Chart category contains six chart types:

Single Stat Card

The Single Stat Card displays a single statistic that can be read from across the room.


Line Chart

The Line Chart compares different metrics and entity groups (hierarchies) over time to identify patterns that merit further investigation.


Line charts can also render metrics from logically equivalent entities. When you choose an entity type that is logically equivalent to another entity type (e.g., an ESX Host and a UCS Blade), you will be able to select a metric belonging to both. Metrics from the logically equivalent entity are shown with the entity type in parentheses.

Free Form Chart

The Free Form Chart allows you to create a chart with free from content like comments, headers, images, bulleted or numbered lists, check boxes and format the content using different font styles and sizes.
