The building blocks of opCharts dashboards, as well as the TopN view are Components. Components are individual graphical views into time related data NMIS is capturing and evaluating. This can include both numerical and textual (IE syslog information) data.

Differences in Components

The are four basic Components available in opCharts. They are:



The Component Window:


This button will appear when viewing a chart that has been saved.  If this chart is auto-generated by opCharts then the button will not appear.  If you want to save this chart the fastest way is to press the "+" sign, which will save the chart and open a new dashboard to save it into (you don't have to save the new dashboard, hit back and refresh and the edit button will appear)

Add to Dashboard:

Pressing this button presents a form with the option to select which dashboard to add the chart to, the option to name the chart (if the name already exists, whatever chart is using that name will be used, if a unique name is used the current chart will be saved under that name when Add is clicked).  After add is clicked a the requested dashboard is displayed and the chart is placed in the first empty component found.  If no empty components are found it will replace the last entry.

View in New Window:

This button will open the chart in full-screen mode.  This option is only present if the chart has been saved (just like edit).
