It sure would be nice to see the alarm thresholds of a given metric on the graphs for data.? Our old monitoring system did this, and it's a nice feature giving operators more insight into issues.


Attaching example:


Indicative Graph:

Nimsoft Graph:

Indicative graphs > UIM graphs, ijs, we shouldn't lose functionality like that

Has this feature been added to the latest release of UIM 8.51?

Agree.. thresholds and baselines (if applicable) should be visible on all graphs, by default. A graph without those tells you nothing, perhaps a spike is normal, perhaps not, without the baselines and thresholds, you do not know.

I think the threshold values should be send as a part of the QOS message - the probe knows what the threshold is, so it would cause the least overhead.

Hi Dan, Can you provide more information on where to do this? Also I think most Nimbus users would want it to be a tickbox option that is available to all graphs as a checkbox "show thresholds" rather than having to create monitors etc.

After all we are interested in looking at why this machine/ group of machines is not working as expected. To know "how" it is not working as expected we need to know what we are currently seeing above/ below thresholds.

o be honest I?can't think of why you would not want to see the thresholds on all graphs!

Hi Eric,

I'm I'm understanding you correctly, you would like a threshold line to appear on the QoS graphs. You can accomplish this by creating QoS monitors. Simply select the QoS constraint that you would like to apply a monitor to and click the drop-down arrow that appears to select Create Monitor. This method would allow you to create a baseline from alarming and it would display the line in your chart.
