    Pollers - many devices on one chart

    kaorlo

       

      Hello, I have a problem: I've created Universal Device Poller and assigned two devices. Is it possible to display measurements of many devices on one chart? In  Customize page>Network Wide Summary Charts there is no "Multiple Device Poller Chart" to choose or anything like that.

       

      Also, do you know, which one of assigned to the poller device is on the chart by default? Is it first one?

      Kind regards,

          Hi Kaorlo,

          On your first question, this is not supported.

          This is well identified, we have made some progress in 10.1 (Interfaces are supported)  but the general use case is not yet.

            You could create a Summary view, use a network wide chart, and put in a view limitation to boil it down to your 2 devices.

                Maybe I a missing something, but with 10.1 we also added the ability to take a single UnDP poller definition that is assigned to multiple devices and place that on a single chart.

                What we cannot do still is if you have multiple UnDP definitions assigned to a single device and you want to put those on the same chart.

                    All,

                    Hopefuly, this will help you recap'ing in your mind the supported combinations for Pollers (1 or more) - Objects (1 or more), as far as displaying multiple time series on chart resources. (45403, 45776)

                    There are 4 tables, one for each type of element: Interfaces, Nodes, Volumes and Others (via UnDP).

                    Hope this helps
