This chart provides key information about the total AFX connectors within your enviroment. The chart uses data found in: avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA. This means the data is always 1 day behind.
The goal of this chart is to understand how many connectors are within your RSA IGL deployment.
The chart can be used by admins to help understand application connectors and effort completed by the admin teams.
Optional Changes to Dynamic Chart Values
This is how you can configure the chart, so it is useful for how you wish to view the data
- GROUPING: This allows you to group the data and display it based on the following date ranges. For example, you might want to show the data grouped per week, per quarter or per day. This will be up to you and your business needs.
For this chart, the recommendation is to use 'Monthly'You MUST ensure you use a single quote ', either side of the value, for this to work properly in the RSA IGL Chart UI.Please copy and paste these values exactly as shown below to change the chart:
However, when testing this in SQL Developer, the single quote ' is NOT required.
- TotalDataPoints: This is how many results you want to display. It is a number and doesn't need any quotes. If you set this value to be 7, it would show 7 results. For example if you set "Grouping" to be 'Monthly' then you might want to set "TotalDataPoints" = 6, showing you the results for the past 6 months.
For this chart, the recommendation is to use 12, however it will depending on the screen size you have and how this looks.
We strongly recommend you do not specify too many values for "TotalDataPoints" otherwise it will not display well
First test this in your query tool (SQLDeveloper, Toad etc..)
select * from
TO_CHAR(Tdates.dates, DECODE(trim( :GROUPING ) , 'Daily', 'YYYY-Mon-DD', 'Weekly', 'YYYY - "Week "WW', 'Monthly', 'YYYY - Month', 'Quarterly', 'YYYY - "Q"Q', 'Yearly', 'YYYY')) StartTime,
Use count(t1.value) to count the number of rows based on your filters
Use max(t1.value) to get the maximum value on the specific date
Use sum(t1.value) to get the collective total of values on the specific date
nvl(max(td.value), 0) VALUE
/* if using avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA then change sysdate to be sysdate-1. This is beacuse telemetry is calculated 1 day later */
WHEN :GROUPING = 'Daily' THEN trunc(sysdate-1, 'DD') - (LEVEL-1)
WHEN :GROUPING = 'Weekly' THEN trunc(sysdate-1, 'D') - (7 * (LEVEL-1))
WHEN :GROUPING = 'Monthly' THEN ADD_MONTHS(trunc(sysdate-1, 'MM'),-1 *(LEVEL-1))
WHEN :GROUPING = 'Quarterly' THEN ADD_MONTHS(trunc(sysdate-1, 'Q'),-3 *(LEVEL-1))
WHEN :GROUPING = 'Yearly' THEN ADD_MONTHS(trunc(sysdate-1, 'Y'),-12 *(LEVEL-1))
LEVEL <= :TotalDataPoints
LEFT JOIN avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA td
on td.CATEGORY = 'afx'
AND td.NAME =('connectors.total')
Use = to get values at the exact dates.
Use <= to get values on or before the exact date
AND trunc(td."DAY", DECODE(:GROUPING ,'Daily','DD','Weekly','D','Monthly','MM','Quarterly','Q','Yearly','Y')) = Tdates.dates
GROUP BY Tdates.dates
ORDER BY Tdates.dates ASC
Example of the results:
- Log into RSA IGL as a user who can create charts. In my example, im using AveksaAdmin
- Go to "Reports" / "Charts"
- Select "+ Create Chart" button
- Under the "General Tab" add the following details:
- Under the "Query" Tab, copy the SQL from above
- Update the 2 dynamic values as noted above, recommendation:
- Press the "Preview" button, you should see some results, as per the example image below.If you get an error at this stage, please test your SQL in a Query tool, like "SQL Developer" or "SQL Squirrel" to ensure it works first.
If it still doesn't work, please share your SQL and a screen shot of the issue below. DO NOT contact RSA Support
- Under the "Columns" Tab, please use the configuration shown in the image below.
- Under the "Display Attributes" tab, you should select "Column 2D". Please also apply these settings, however you can update the wording with what is best for you.
- Under "Title and Axis Names"
- Under "Functional attributes"
- Select "Animation" = ticked
- Select "Show Labels" = ticked
- Select "Show Values" = ticked
- Select "Rotate Values" = ticke
- Select "Slant Values" = ticked
- Label Display = WRAP
- Label Step: 2 (Note: this just skips each value in the X axis display, remove this if you want to show all results, but this might not look great if you do)
- Under "Data Dataset Element"
There are MANY other "display attributes" you can play with on this screen, so please update and make changes as you see fit.
- Please "hit reply" and share your feedback - we would love to see an image of this working in your environment!
