I'd like to build a dashboard where I can choose a resource (VM) from the Resource widget, and have a Metric Graph widget update with that resource's data for a consistent set of metrics... ie CPU, memory, disk, network.
I set the interactions so the provider is Resources and the Receiving is Metric Graph, but whenever I select a resource the metric graph seems to select a random set of metrics to graph for that resource.
For one VM, I'll get Time Remaining, Risk, Uptime, Memory Overhead Touched
The next selected VM I might get a Supermetric, CPU Active, number of virtual disks, Multicast packets received ...
It's really random and makes no sense.
I've edited the Metric Graph widget to select the specific metrics I want (and have to select a resource to do so), but that doesn't make a difference.
What do I need to do to "pin" the Metric Graph to a particular set of metrics?
I have already set up the 3-tier interaction of selecting the resource and selecting the metric to display the graph. I'm trying to shortcut that by one step.
Your SQL query example helped a lot.
The path down to "reskindmetrics" was deeper than in the KB:
I was more successful using just the "attrkeyId" rather than the "attrkey"
But most importantly, I got to where I wanted.
I wonder why this was a KB and not in the users manual - Yes, I actually looked it up beforehand -haha
