When creating a performance section 'No Available Data' is shown because there is no data for this combination of Scope and Metric.  This can occur if you have changed the scope after configuring the metric. This procedure will help you identify the correct Metric for a particular Scope.


There are several ways to check the metric.

1. Clear the existing metric and use the down arrow button on the keyboard to view all the metrics available for the scope you have chosen.

2. Browse Squared Up to identify the metric Object, Counter and Instance names, see below.

3. Drag the graph you want from the 'View Performance' page into your Performance plugin section.

You can also add the instance if you require.

8. IMPORTANT: Configure the timeframe.  If the metric is not shown extend the timeframe.
