Time components

Time components visually represent data via time slices segregated by hours, days, weeks, and more. You can display and present time components in many formats including area, bar, and line charts. They're also available in stacked and 100% stacked formats, which enable you to portray the data in comparative context.

Within a single time component, you can display multiple independent series, each retrieved from different a data source if required. You can also set up a calculated series, which performs a mathematical calculation based on one or more of the other series in the component. If you have key performance indicators that require a more complex analysis of the data, a calculated series is recommended.

Time component series

Time components can display multiple independent series at one time, meaning you can view data from multiple data sources within a single time component if desired.

Calculated series

You can define a calculated series that performs a mathematical calculation using values from one or more of the other series in a time component. By doing so, a new series is created, which can be useful when combining incidents or graphing percentage lines from separate service desks into a single chart. When using a calculated series, you have the option of hiding the other series used in the calculation.

Several mathematical expressions are available for creating a calculated series, as described below.

For guidance on how to define a calculated series for time, group, and scoreboard components, see the Calculated Series video on the Ivanti community website.
