Charts in the SolarWinds Web Console are easily customizable. Clicking a chart opens the Custom Chart view in a new window. The following sections describe options that are available on the Custom Chart page to modify the presentation of a selected chart.
Click Refresh at any time to review changes you have made.
Note: SolarWinds may provide default chart titles and subtitles. If you edit any of the Chart Titles fields on the Custom Chart page, you can restore the default titles and subtitles by clearing the respective fields, and then clicking Submit.
- Select a predefined period from the Select a Time Period: menu.
- Provide custom Beginning and Ending Dates/Times in the appropriate fields in the Time Period area.
The sample interval dictates the precision of a given chart. A single point or bar is plotted for each sample interval. If a sample interval spans multiple polls, data is automatically summarized and plotted as a single point or bar on the chart.
Note: Due to limits of memory allocation and the large number of polled data points, some combinations of time periods and sample intervals may require too many system resources to display. As a result, charts may not display if the time period is too long or if the sample interval is too small.
Chart Size options configure the width and height, in pixels, of the chart. You can maintain the same width/height aspect ratio, or scale the chart in size, by entering a width in the Width field and then entering 0 for the Height.
Note:Font Size selections are maintained in the printable version of your chart.
