If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, make sure 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_SVC Required Data Sources
The table contains the probes and QoS metrics required for the preconfigured IBM-SVC dashboard.
The OC Dashboards template includes some of the required QoS measurements, but not all. Make sure all the measurements listed here are enabled in the probe.
