Displaying cube data results in a chart or table

IT Analytics

You can display cube data as either a chart or table. The default presentation is a pivot table.

Usually, it is easier to configure a table with the required fields and configuration. Then, you can switch to a chart, instead of building a chart from the beginning.

  • Charts make it easier to compare data because you can see a summary of the information in graphical format.

  • Tables make it easier to identify specific values because you can expand and collapse various rows and columns. A table is the default view for cube information.

To display results in a table

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Reports menu, click All Reports.

  2. In the left pane, expand the IT Analytics>Cubes folder.

  3. Click the cube that you want to create a table for.

    For example, the Computers cube.

  4. From the toolbar at the top of the page, click Display as Table. Table view is the default view.

  5. On the cube toolbar, click the Field List icon . The Field List box displays the fields that are available within the cube.

    You can position the available fields on the table by dragging and dropping fields from the Field List box.

    You can also use filters to define the data for each field that you want displayed in the chart.

  6. Once you have configured the cube data, you can choose to save the view. By saving the view, you do not have to reconfigure the data that you most commonly access.
