My Dashboard Woes!

Following on from Detail numbers in Dashboard  I'd just like to reach out to product management and voice the need for improvement in this area.


Here is my dashboard. Lets not worry too much about what the data is but let's look at the presentation



Now here is everything that is wrong with it.


  1. All Pie Charts areof the same size and are just flat. You can't have donut pie charts.
  2. The labels on the Pie charts get truncated eg "mcafee antivirus on .... 27" so you cant understand what the segment means. This means you have to change your meta to fit.
  3. There doesn't seem to be any ordering of the values (eg look at CB Days Workstation values)
  4. A lot of the dashboard is just taken up with empty whitespace.
  5. You cant bucket values or even work with integer values and put them into buckets.


Should we just be using other tools for Dashboards instead?

Is there any improvement in Dashboards in Netwitness 11?
