Working with service-specific pages

The service-specific pages in the HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Customer View are made up of interactive chart and report widgets that contain analytics designed to address common requirements.  This article describes the features of the service-specific pages of the HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity Customer View, and how they work.

This overview is relevant to HPE GreenLake Flex Capacity account holders. 

Throughout this article, 3PAR storage services are used for illustration purposes, but the page features work the same way across all supported services.

Selecting data

The widgets are preconfigured for you; for example, they typically have predefined filters and date ranges. 

If a filter is locked by the report author, it displays a lock icon. You cannot edit or remove locked filters.

The Period fields enable you to specify a range of dates for all data displayed. You can select from several predefined ranges, or enter a custom range.  You can also add filters (and remove them, except for locked filters). 

Understanding the chart widgets

Line charts show data for numeric fields, such as cost, quantity, or rate, over time:

In the 3PAR Storage and Proliant Blade Servers pages, the line chart displays capacity used by array and by tier.

In the SAN Switches page, the line chart displays capacity used by switch and by model.

In the DL Servers page, the line chart displays capacity used by server and by tier,

 

Bar charts compare categorical data in rectangular bars sized in proportion to the values they represent:

For all services. the bar chart widget displays usage vs. commitment by Meter (for more on Meters, see Understanding Usage Data Records)..

Displaying details

Each of the chart widgets is interactive, so you can display further details by hovering, clicking, or drilling down.  

On a line chart, you can hover over a data point on a line to display a tooltip containing its details. Clicking a data point on a line works as a data filter, causing the charts and reports on the page to show data only for that point in time.

On a bar chart, you can hover over a bar to display a tooltip containing its details. Clicking a bar works as a data filter, causing the charts and reports on the page to show data only for the device it represents.

Understanding the Report widget

The Report widget shows data for a single report only, as preconfigured for you. 

Tabular report widgets break results down by tier.  For some customers, they're also broken down by location. Each item at the lowest level - whether it represents a particular tier at a particular location, or simply a particular Tier - is considered a Meter. (for more on Meters, see Understanding Usage Data Records). Each Meter's costs are subtotaled; costs are also subtotaled by service category.  An overall total is displayed at the bottom of the page.  

Displaying groups

If a report includes groups of data (the Group column), the other columns in the row show totals for all members in that group. You can click a black triangle to expand the group and display the rows that contain its members' data (some groups might include subgroups).  

You can also adjust column width as needed.

In the Proliant Blade Servers page, the report widget displays usage by blade.

In the SAN Switches page, the report widget displays usage by switch

In the DL Servers page, the report widget displays usage by server.
