The historical graph of the collected system stats gives you information about the variation of the stats over a time frame selected.


To create a historical graph:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Health & Wellness.
    The Health & Wellness view is displayed with the Monitoring tab open.
  2. Click System Stats Browser.
    The System Stats Browser panel is displayed.
  3. Specify the filter criteria to display the statistics you want.
  4. In the Historical Graph column, select rrd_graph_icon.png.
    The Historical graph for the selected statistic is displayed.
    The figure below gives an example of the historical graph for Memory Utilization statistic for a host.
    The graphical view is customized to display the statistics collected for the current day and the values are zoomed in for an interval of an hour (10.15 - 11.15 hrs). Hover over the graph to view the details at a particular instant. For example, in the figure it displays the memory utilization at 11.00 hrs.

Note: You can customize the graph view by selecting the Time Frame and Date range. You can zoom in using the zoom in value, time window, or by just a click and a drag in the plot area. For details on the parameters to customize and zoom in functions see Historical Graph View for System Stats.

Any break or gap in chart line indicates that the service or host was down during that time.
