Adding filters to charts in NCM on the Config Summary page

Table of contents

Updated September 25, 2018

Overview

Pie charts on the Config Summary dashboard can show the status of some nodes as Unknown. This occurs, for example, when there is not a config specified as running and another specified as startup, so NCM has nothing to compare. Charts that show changes or conflicts would show the status of the associated node as Unknown.

To avoid showing Unknown as the status, you can exclude these nodes from the chart.

Environment

  • NCM any version

Steps

  1. On the Config Summary page, select Edit in the upper-right corner of the widget that contains the chart you want to filter.

  2. Add a filter to include only the nodes you want, or to exclude the nodes you don't want.

    Note: You cannot use Custom Properties to filter widgets. To see the complete list of what node properties are useable, click the Show List of Node Properties link just above the submit button.
