The ibm_ds_next Unified Dashboard provides predefined list views to monitor the health and performance of IBM DS8xxx storage systems.
 If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, ensure that all required data sources for the Unified Dashboard are enabled. The required probe must be deployed and must be configured so that required QoS metrics and subkeys or targets are activated. For more information, see the help topic on required data sources for the Unified Dashboard.

IBM DS Next Required Data Sources
This table lists the QoS metrics, and subkeys or targets that must be activated to populate data in the IBM DS Next dashboard. An asterisk (*) means that this QoS brings data for all targets for which it is applicable.
 For more information on configuring probes, see the documentation for each probe.
