Set the Resolution for Reported Data

Some view types, such as table views and trend views, provide the option to set the resolution for the reported data.

Determine the Resolution
Trend charts and related views show data as a time series. Time series data shows values for multiple time points across the time range of the report. The resolution setting for a trend view determines the amount of time that each data point in the chart represents. For trend views, the
chart
subtitles indicate the data resolution.
Table views also include data resolution settings. For table views, the resolution represents the data rollup level to show: as polled, hourly rollup, or daily rollup. For table views, the
view
subtitle indicates the data resolution. The following examples describe some table view subtitles:
  • Resolution: Hourly Roll-Up (Overridden)
    Hourly resolution is requested for the selected time range for the current user.
  • Resolution: Hourly Roll-Up (Overridden) Resolution Returned: Daily Roll-Up
    Hourly resolution is requested for the selected time range for the current user. The data source does not have hourly data for the entire time range, so the view provides daily resolution.
Follow these steps:
  1. Click the View Settings (gear) icon on the view, and then select
    Edit
    from the menu.
    The view options appear in the dialog that opens.
  2. For
    Resolution
    , determine the appropriate resolution using the time range by selecting
    Use default resolution
    .
View Report Resolution Settings
The time range for a view determines the default data resolution:
  • As Polled Data
    Less than, or equal to, 24 hours
  • Hourly Resolution
    Greater than 24 hours to less than 14 days
  • Daily Resolution
    14 days to less than one year
  • Weekly Resolution
    One year or longer
The current selected time range determines the possible resolution options. The following values show the maximum time range for each data resolution:
  • As Polled Data
    Less than, or equal to, 24 hours
  • Hourly Resolution
    Less than 30 days, and more than 24 hours
  • Daily Resolution
    More than, or equal to, 30 days
Users with the Run Dashboards At Higher Resolution role right use the following maximum time ranges:
  • As Polled Data
    Less than, or equal to, 31 days
  • Hourly Resolution
    More than 31 days
  • Daily Resolution
    More than three months
The view shows that resolution only when the following conditions are true:
  • The user can view report data at that resolution for that time range.
  • The data resolution is within the data retention policy of the data source.
If the data is unavailable or the time range is too great, the system overrides the specified resolution automatically. The system returns the closest permissible resolution for the time range. For trend views, the
chart
subtitles indicates the data resolution. For tables views, the
view
subtitle indicates the data resolution.
