Refer to the image above when reading the following:

  1. Filters: There are two filters available on the Utilization report:
    1. Utilization Metric filter, which allows you to choose the utilization metric that's used to provide the details in the summary table. See the following topics for more information on utilization metrics available for elements generated by some of the integrations Netuitive provides:
    2. Element filter, which allows you to filter the elements displayed in the table.
  2. Summary Table: The following columns in the table provide a summary of each element's Utilization metric data within the specified Time Frame setting:
    Important   The number of elements displayed on the Utilization Report is sensitive to the time frame setting i.e. an element that was available a week ago but not available now would show on the list when 1w is selected.
    • Min: The Min column shows the lowest value in the element's Utilization metric for the specified Time Frame.
    • 5th-Percentile: The 5th-Percentile column shows the data point (%) in the specified element's utilization metric that 5% of all other data points in the Utilization metric are less than or equal to.
    • Example(s)   A 5th-Percentile value of 85% indicates that only 5% of all other data points in the specified element's Utilization metric are less than or equal to 85%, implying high utilization.
    • Average:The Average column shows the average value for the data points in the specified element's Utilization metric for the specified Time Frame.
    • 95th-Percentile:The 95th-Percentile column shows the data point (%) in the specified element's Utilization metric that 95% of all other data points in the Utilization metric are less than or equal to.
    • Example(s)   A 95th-Percentile value of 10% indicates that 95% of all other data points for the specified element's Utilization metric are less than or equal to 10%, implying low utilization.
    • Max:The Max column shows the highest value in the element's Utilization metric for the specified Time Frame.
  3. Time Frame Controls: The Time Frame controls the range of data displayed. To refresh data, click the refresh button.Selecting "1w" in the Time Frame displays the most recent week of data and/or elements. By selecting "Ending Now," you can specify a range of data beginning with a date other than today. For more information, see Time Frame.
