Results Sets

Results sets is a chart capability that provides for using the results of a Top N or Inventory chart, that is, the entities returned, as a basis for another Top N or Inventory chart.

Suppose you want to find the Top 10 VirtualWisdom Services consuming the most Appliance CPU. Then, from those results, you want to find the services consuming the most Appliance memory. You would follow these steps.

  1. Create a new Report and add a Trend chart to the empty row. Choose VirtualWisdom Service as the entity type and then choose Total CPU Time (%) as the metric (see the leftmost image below). Click OK to display the chart (see the rightmost image below).
