Bar Chart Views

Bar charts, also known as horizontal bar charts, show a comparative visualization of data. These charts are useful to compare items in a small group when the expected value of the metric is similar for all items. The visualization enables you to identify which item differs from the others. Bar charts can be useful for capacity planning.

Side-by-Side Bar Charts
Side-by-side bar charts compare pairs of related metrics for interfaces.
For the out-of-the-box views, select the Metric Value to display on the view: Percentage, Rate, or Volume.

Configure a Horizontal Bar Chart View
The IM Horizontal Bar Chart is a custom view that lets you select the metrics to display. The chart can display multiple metrics for each device or component in the view context.
 
Follow these steps:
 
  1. Select the metrics to show in the chart.
    Each selected metric appears as different colored bar in the chart.
     The custom bar chart is best used to compare a few similar metrics for a small group of items. If you select too many items or too many metrics, the view is difficult to read.
    Select metrics with consistent unit types (bits, percentage, and so on) for more valuable comparisons.
    Also, select metrics with a consistent rollup or aggregation strategy. For example, compare two sets of averages for two different metrics. This comparison is more valuable than comparing the total for one metric and the average for another metric.
  2. Select the sort order for the view.
    The metric that you select from the Metric Sort list represents the first bar on the bar chart.
  3. Select the Metric Calculate Level.
    This option determines what level of aggregation each row in the view represents: a device, or a component.
  4. Select the chart type:
    •  
      Stacked Chart
      For each device or item, this chart type shows a horizontal bar with segments representing each selected metric.
    •  
      Side-by-Side Chart
      For each device or item, this chart type shows a horizontal bar representing each selected metric.
Bar Chart Tables
Some out-of-the box table views show a column with a bar graph. These tables display a bar chart column for metrics with percentage values. For more information about these views, see Table Views.
