Perfstack Widget and Application data

Hi All,

I'm very pumped about recent enhancements which permit adding Perfstack projects to dashboards. This sounds like a GREAT way to get performance data out to my Active Directory and Exchange teams via the Solarwinds console.

However...

It seems the "widget" based perfstack projects only display "standard" performance counters and will not display counters captured by an application.

For example (using SAM with agent polling to monitor Active Directory Domain Controllers):

I create a perfstack project to display CPU data for domain controllers DC1, DC2.  Save as a perfstack project, and then pull this project in as resource to a view.  The perfstack project displays in the console just fine.

But...

If I create an application to pull, say, LDAP Searches Per Second, and then pull that application data for DC1 and DC2 into a perfstack project.  Save, and add that perfstack project as a view resource.

Display the view and nothing shows up.  I get a box that says 'Perfstack Widget' and 'Load Perfstack Project' and I can select the perfstack project with the application data, but then it goes right back to the 'Load Perfstack Project' screen and does not display the perfstack data.

I've tested this enough to feel pretty confident that default (CPU/Mem) data shows up fine in a perfstack project in a view, but data gathered by an application does not.

Can anyone provide insight into what might be happening here?

Thanks for your help.

This issue was addressed in SAM 6.8 which is now available through your Customer Portal.

@aLTeReGo Is there anyway to get this working in SAM 6.7?  A workaround or anything? We are in freeze and are unable to upgrade until next year. I can send the PerfStack link, but I can't seem to find a way to make it read only.

Is there a way to add a 'full screen' flag into the shared URL?  My thinking is that I could then put that URL into a Custom HTML resource and embed it.

I'm afraid there are no workarounds. The only option to address this issue is to upgrade to 6.8 or later.

I've demonstrated this problem to the UX team. I believe they are looking into it.

We are tracking this issue internally under SAM-7262.

It appears this doesn't work for UDP data based dashboards as well. I get the same symptom.

Bummer.
