    can be the axis unit of the dashboard's graph modified please?

    the reason is that we display JVM runtime.used memory PMI metric on a dashboard which value is overtaken from WAS. however it's default value is in 1000 unit, so the original value ( that is 1.3GB) is shown on dahboard as 1.3MB and therefore we would like to modify it.


    thank you,

    Howdy stefan,


    Just a few question about the JVM Runtime.UsedMemory, which agent is this from and with the JDBC connnection pools, guessing this is for an application server.


    If you right click on the graph within the dashboard editor, then select "Data Option" there are a few settings for Scale that might be able to help you.  If not, then if you control the metric through a java calculator or published through an end user provided script (java/perl) then you might have a chance to change it by changing the value before it is published to the APM.


    Like wise, you might be able to build a calculator to multiply/divide the native value into a new value then reassign the graph to your new value.


    If the scale option or the take it over suggestions aren't want you are looking for, then on the community page, there is a dropdown with a pencil icon next to the search box that lists the "Idea" link.

    Hi Stefan,


    you can mention the unit in the label of the graph, e.g. JVM Runtime.UsedMemory (KB). Otherwise scaling/translation can be achieved as Bill described.


    You can create a new idea although the chances of getting implemented are very small because the APM product team is investing in new UIs and features that make life for APM users a lot easier rather than marginally improving the old UI(s).
