my dashboard custom views
Ability to create custom tiles that show data from a query (e.g. "Type!=Operation |measure count() by Type" ) which are either horizontal bar, vertical bar, pie, etc. Colors for the bars or color highlight of critical vs. warning vs. informational status that are over/under a threshold.
Have a look at the view designer and let us know what you think.
I would like to add that data types (event, performance, etc) should not be coupled with the presentation possibilities of the data.
One should be free to choose a visualization, perhaps with a suggestion of the most appropriate type for the data type in the query.
I also think it is important to support custom log data at the same level as ETL traces as far as visualization is concerned.
