TODAY
According to the Power User Certification Guide, there is a predefined list of 14 units you can use to label graphs like: Percent, Packets, PacketsPerSecond and 11 others.
CHALLENGE:
The Self-Certification process is flexible enough to allow certification of technologies that eventually can use units that go beyond the 14 predefined ones like Celsius/Farenheint (for temperature), dBm (for Optical Signal Power) and others.
IDEA:
Allow the addition of new Units as part of Self-Certification process. It could be available in the /typecatalog or /rest webservices.

Hello Maragaret,

I have to disagree with you. As you can see the idea war opened 2014. At that time 4 units were mentioned which are still not in the product (3.1 June Update)!

So I think we, the user, can add additional units. Furthermore, as a customer, we cannot always wait years for CA to implement the requirements!

As a first serve: Please add the 4 units in 3.2 September update. Should certainly not be a big effort.

Hello, All,

I do not believe that we have made the decision to "allow the addition of new Units as part of Self-Certification process," currently.  However, we have added to the selection of units you can use to label graphs since this was opened in March 2014.  Once r2.7 comes out, please take a look and report back which unit labels may still be needed.

 

Thanks,

Andrew1,

Just read your idea and got my vote! While it asks for the rate tag for counter metrics, this idea asks for the possibility to insert new labels or legends in graphs for metrics in general (counter and non-counter metrics).

My personal experience was self-certifying GPON ONT components. There were some optical metrics measured in decibel milliwatts, or dBm. They are not counters tough, probably they can be called "gauge" since they are integer numbers in a range from 0 to -99.

In this case, all I need is the legend "dBm" in the graph, but it would be nice to be able to add those legends (or Units) as needed.

This idea already exists in a more complete form. search for:

Having 2 of the same idea just fragments the votes.
