If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, verify that all required data sources are enabled. You must deploy and configure the required probe 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.
Required Data Sources
The table contains the probes and QoS metrics that are required for the preconfigured XenServer dashboard.
The OC Dashboards template includes some of the required QoS measurements, but not all. Verify that you enabled in the probe all the measurements that are listed here.
