Fill in missing data points
Select this if you want the chart to fill in any missing data points.
To understand this setting, examine the two images below. Both of these charts are configured exactly the same, except for the 'Fill in missing data points' setting.
When 'Fill in missing data points' is enabled, it creates a data point for every interval, even if the data has not changed. When 'Fill in missing data points' is not enabled, gaps will appear where there is no data.
You can plot up to ten metrics on the one chart. For each metric you can show the Metric Value and the Target Value. You can also enter a legend and select a color for the value being charted.
Select the Metric ID
Select Show Metric Value and/or Show Target Value and enter a legend and select a color
Entering the Legend and selecting the color are optional.
