The Mashup Chart widget shows disparate pieces of information for a resource. It shows a health chart, an anomaly count graph, and metric graphs for key performance indicators (KPIs).

The Mashup Chart widget contains charts that show different aspects of the behavior of a selected resource. By default, the charts show data for the past six hours. The Mashup Chart widget shows the same information as the Mashup tab on the Alert Detail page.

The Mashup Chart widget contains the following charts.

A Health chart for the object, which can include each alert for the specified time period. Click an alert to see more information, or double-click an alert to open the Alert Summary page.

An Anomaly Count Graph for the object, which is similar to the anomaly graph that the cross-silo analysis feature generates. The graph shows the number of anomalies for the object and its children at the indicated time. For an application, it also shows the count for each tier in a stacked chart. A red line marks the noise threshold for the object. An anomaly count higher than this threshold indicates a 90 percent probability of a problem and triggers an early warning alert.

Metric graphs for any or all of the KPIs for any objects listed as a root cause object. For an application, this chart shows the application and any tiers that contain root causes. You can select the KPI to include by selecting Chart Controls > KPIs on the widget toolbar. Any shared area on a graph indicates that the KPI violated its threshold during that time period. Click the top left of the shaded area to see details about the anomaly.

The Anomaly Count Graph chart and metric graphs reflect up to five levels of resources, including the selected object and four child levels.

You edit a Mashup Chart widget after you add it to a dashboard. The changes you make to the options create a custom widget to meet the needs of the dashboard users.

The widget might be included on any of your custom dashboards. In the left pane, click Home to see your configured dashboards.

To customize the data that appears in the dashboard widget, click Content in the left pane, and click Dashboards. On the Dashboards toolbar, click the plus sign to add a dashboard or the pencil to edit the selected dashboard. In the Dashboard workspace, on the left, click Widget List, and drag a widget to the right pane of the dashboard. On the title bar of the selected widget, click the pencil to access the configuration options.

The toolbar at the top of the Mashup Chart widget contains icons that you can use to change the view.
