Question on changing system defaults

Hello all,

I have PM 9.0 running on a server with OMW 9.0.  I have a user that is creating graphs under Diagnostic View and he needs more than the system default of 8 metrics per graph.  I updated the SORTBY_MAX_GRAPH_COUNT parameter in OVPMConfig.ini, followed by a restart.

This did not change anything; we can add more metrics to a graph, but once saved and reopened it only shows 8 metrics.  How do I increase the default metrics setting for a graph?

Thanks in advance for any help or info offered.

You can Click Add Metrics. The Metric Selection window appears.
From the Data Sources drop-down, select the node and data source combination which you want.
Select one or more metrics for which you want to draw graph and click Add.
Click Close after you complete the selection. The list of metrics which you selected now appears in a tabular form.

Hello TamNP,


Thanks for the info, but this does not quite address my issue.  I am able to add metrics to graphs as you advise, but when I save the graph and re-open it only 8 metrics are saved and displayed.   Our performance/test team has requested to have more than 8 metrics on a graph so they can open it and start their load tests.
