KBI 311523 Enhancement: Dynamic Scaling In Argent Commander’s Dashboards


Argent Commander 1701-A and above


Wednesday, 8 March 2017


Argent Commander allows customers to configure the Y-Axis of dashboards between “Start At Zero” (default) and “Dynamic”

The option is available per-graph, and is persistent for that graph

Technical Background

Choosing “Start At Zero” helps to ensure comparisons in spikes are apples-to-apples

Choosing “Dynamic” helps to identify small fluctuations in data

For example, with the Dynamic option, on Day 1, if the values are between 100 to 200, the Y-Axis scale will be roughly between 100 to 200. On Day 2, if all the values jump to 9,000 to 10,000, then the Y-Axis scale will be roughly between 9,000 to 10,000
