Key Task: Customize a Dashboard to Analyze Process Resources (Advanced)

Use Analyze Process Resources (Advanced) to customize the dashboard to display any data you need to investigate your own theories on any managed application's resource usage (PRC), which would slow down devices. Add your own columns, design your own fields with custom calculations, and apply them to any of the attributes in the system which you want to examine.

For example, you can build a trend graph showing the recent process resource consumption of an application in a department over the past week, or the PRC trend for all those using a certain type of device at different times of the day.

    Tip

    If you receive a communication error 504, ensure that your dashboard does not list too many rows (like all your device names or usernames). You can narrow the scope of the data displayed by selecting Show Filter for that attribute and selecting the values to display. To further improve dashboard performance, select Aggregation Type > Hourly or Daily, and do not include Tableau's level of detail formulas.

  4. Step 4 You can change the start time of the data displayed in this dashboard in the Timeframe menu in the top right corner of the dashboard.
