IBM Navigator for i - optional second value returned for metrics
Metrics could be enhanced significantly by allowing the use of a second (optional) value returned from the SQL.
The new iNav opens a world of possibilities with customisation of charts, metrics, etc.
One thing that crossed my mind was that a metric could be based on up to two returned values. The first is mandatory and is the actual value which determines plotting of the chart, and the second is optional and is displayed when a user hovers their mouse over a particular point.
So for example a metric that shows the utilization of the most utilized IASP on any given LPAR would return : 1. The IASP utilization figure. This determines the plotting of the chart. 2. The name of the IASP, and this would be displayed when the user hovers over that point/line on the chart.
