Allow for Varying Y Axis Scale in Performance Metric Graphs

Allow for Varying Y Axis Scale in Performance Metric Graphs

We have an interface group that contains interfaces for a specific network within our global network. Interface utilization varies greatly within this group. When we run a performance monitor report/graph for this group the Y axis value for all graphs matches the scale of the highest utilized interface. As an example the throughput on the largest interface is 603,604,480.00. The scale on the y axis is from 0.00 -> 700,000,000.00. In that same interface group we have another interface with throughput of 82,333,872.00. The scale on that interface graph is also 0.00 -> 700,000,000.00. This is basically a useless graph because there is just a line across the bottom of the graph. The scale should match the amount of data present in that specific graph and not the scale for the interface in that group with the highest throughput value. Please note I am using throughput as one example. There are other metrics which have the same output when running these types of performance metric reports.

NNMi dashboard displays several kind of graphs.
Currently , we received from our customers a feedback about the presentation and precision of these graphs
In practice, these graph are not enough significant and they are not useful to generate any report.
For example, for graph: “interface debit “, the scale doesn’t precise the maximum debit supported by the interface.

Efforts should be made to improve the readability of these graphs
