Display settings control options that modify the data that appears in dashboards and views.
The following video explains the display setting options:

Auto Refresh
You can turn auto refresh on and off using the option in the upper-right corner of the 
Performance Center
 user interface. Enabling auto refresh displays the most recent data. Auto refresh defaults to refresh every 60 seconds. However, this setting is adjustable. For example, if polling is set to 5 minutes, you can work with CA Support to set auto refresh to 5 minutes.
Do not set auto refresh lower than the poll cycle.
View Suppression
View suppression hides views when the required data source is not registered or when a required technology is not configured. Similar behavior applies to context tabs and custom menus. Menus and tabs that include only suppressed views are hidden. View suppression applies to the default views on out-of-the-box dashboards. View suppression does not hide views from administrators when they use the view categories to edit a dashboard.
When the data source that populates a view is registered, that view is no longer hidden.
The Suppress Views option is enabled by default. You can disable it for troubleshooting purposes, or to help you decide whether to deploy another data source.

    View Suppression
    drop-down list:

Item Name Display Option
The Item Display Name Option determines whether device and interface names appear as the display name or as the alias in dashboards and views. By default, all users see the display name.
This option does 
not
 control how devices and interfaces appear in the device or interface inventory lists.
To modify this option, your user account requires the View Item Display Name or Name Alias role right.
Follow these steps:
  1. Hover over
    My Settings
    , and click
    Display Settings

  2. Select one of the following options from the
    Item Name Display Setting
    drop-down list.
    • Use Display Name
    • Use Item Name Alias
      This is a display option only. If you replace the display name with the item name alias, you cannot perform operations such as searching and grouping on the alias value. However, you can perform operations such as searching and grouping on the display name.
  3. Click
    Save
    .
    For the views that have column setting options, you can modify the view to show name or alias. For example, in Inventory views, you can select to display both the display names and aliases for items. For more information, see Table Views.
