Customizing a viewlet

In addition to choosing the content and layout for a view, you can also customize many of the individual viewlets. A customizable viewlet has the Customize Viewlet icon in the upper right corner. For example, when you click the Customize Viewlet icon on a Disk viewlet, the Customize Viewlet page appears.
To customize the viewlet:
1. In the Select viewlet components to display area, select only the viewlet components you want to appear. Clear any components you do not want to include. You can choose any or all of the following options:
*Resource name in title — The name of the resource
*Resource status in title — The status of the resource
*Tabular data — The data displayed in a table
*Graph — Whether to display a graph or not
2. In the Select graph properties area, select the following graph properties:
*Historicalline, column, area, stacked column or stacked area
This option sets the viewlet graph style for showing the graph points in time.
*Sizemedium, large, or very large
*Max display time— Choose the display time from the drop-down list. The higher you set the maximum display time, the more processing time will be required to produce the data and the fewer details will be visually evident.
For details about the graph cache, see OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer: Getting Started.
3. Set the following Graph Visuals properties:
*Legend — An explanation of what the colors in the graph represent
*Grid — A grid to help you examine data more closely
*Threshold — Whether rule thresholds (if available and currently in use) are displayed on the graphs
4. Click Save. The Dashboard page appears with the customized viewlets.
