The KPI chart type is based on two metrics: a primary metric and a comparison metric (by default is set to NONE). This chart type allows you to visualize the results of comparing the metrics and show positive or negative dynamics.
This chart type is supported by all data sources.
To configure the default chart settings for a data source:
Edit the appropriate data source configuration. See Editing a Data Source Configuration.
Select the Charts tab in the data source configuration wizard.
On the Standard subtab of the Charts tab, select KPI.
Configure the settings as follows:
Setting Description Metric Select the metric to show on the chart. You can define the default aggregation function: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions. Label Color Select a label color. Down Arrow Color Select a down arrow color.
Comparison Data Color
Select a comparison data color. Background Color Select the background color. Up Arrow Color Select an up arrow color. Data Color Select the data color. Comparison Metric
Select the metric that you want to compare with the primary metric (selected from the Metric list). Keep in mind that this option is not required, so you can select the NONE value if needed. You can also select the aggregation functions for the metrics from the list.
You can also define the default aggregation function used for the metric values: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions.
