I have a metric that is collecting every 15 minutes, which I display on a performance graph and a Top N bar graph, but when I select hourly resolution and average the value it doesn’t work. I get the same value if I select Min, Max or Avg, on both Hourly and Daily Resolution. Am I missing something obvious here?
We are running version 3.3 and SCOM 2016.
Edit: I have found this happens with all our metrics.
Thank you for your help, SquaredUP has acknowledged its a bug and is looking into it.
Love the community here, keep up the good work.
Hi Jelly, Cheers for that information. I am using percentages for my metrics at the moment, and have tried your comments to modify the JSON directly but I am still getting inaccurate aggregates of the data. It’s not how much is shown on the bar but the values pulled by squared up. They are being aggregated incorrectly. For example, I have a metric that is over 12 hours 12% max, 2.5% min, 8% Average, but when I put that into the graph with hourly or daily aggregates I get an average of 31.3%, or a minimum of 31.3% or a maximum of 31.3%.
Any further information would be greatly appreciated.
Due to the way Squared Up calculates the size of the line in the bar graph it is usually recommended for metrics with a fixed upper value, e.g. percentages.
Without some magic, Squared Up will not know what the min/max values of a metric are, so you can add this to the JSON.
The Performance Bar Tile, by default, will only show the following display options, even if you’re not using a %-based metric;
But if you paste in the equivalent block from a Sparklines Tile where a custom range has been set, you’ll see all the variables and will be able to fine tune, for example;
