Viewing results in panels

When you view a board, you can click a panel to modify the panel settings and view the data in more detail.

Modify panel settings

You can modify the panel settings to view specific results collected for the panel by its source. There are two modes that you can use to modify panel data:

View mode

Use the view mode to temporarily modify panel settings. When you leave the page, settings are not saved.

Edit mode

Use the edit mode to permanently modify panel settings.

The available options to modify the panel settings differ between the two modes.

  1. From the Trends menu, click Boards.
  2. Click the title of the board that you want to open.

  4. The panel displays in view mode by default. From the Trends View tab, you can modify the following settings:
    SettingDescription
    Chart TypeSelect the type of data visualization to use in the panel. For more information, see Reference: Chart options in Trends.
    CountFor a saved question source, select to include data from Online clients or Online and most recent offline clients. The online and offline statuses relate to the time when Trends collected results, not the present time. Online clients are endpoints that responded to the question within the last 24 hours. Online and most recent offline clients are endpoints that responded within the last week.
    Computer GroupFor a saved question source, select the computer group to display data from in the panel. The available computer groups include the computer groups visible to Trends that you have access to.
    Date Range

    Select a date or date range to display in the chart. For available options by chart type, see Reference: Chart options in Trends.

    FieldSelect the field from the source to display in the panel. If the source only contains one field, such as a saved question source that uses a single column sensor, only one option is available.
    CountFor a saved question source, select to include data from Online clients or Online and most recent offline clients. The online and offline statuses relate to the time when Trends collected results, not the present time. Online clients are endpoints that responded to the question within the last 24 hours.

View live results

You can view the most recent data collected for the panel by its source.

To view live results for a saved question source, you must have read sensor privileges on the content set that contains the sensor used by the saved question source. For more information, see the Trends requirements.

  1. From the Trends menu, click Boards.
  2. Click the title of the board that you want to open.
  3. Click the title of the panel that you want to view.
  4. Click Live Results.

The Trends saved question displays along with the most recent results.

The following actions are available from the Live Results tab:

Drill down on the results

Trends stores aggregate results of questions for computer groups visible to Trends. Trends does not store the full question results over the course of collection. You cannot drill down to past point-in-time data on specific endpoints, although it is possible to drill down on the current data set. For example, you cannot use Trends to see what OS patch a specific computer was running on a specific date in the past. Instead, you can use Trends to view the most recent results about OS patches, and from recent results, you can drill down to results for specific computers.

Select one or more rows and click Drill Down to display more details about the matching results.

Deploy an action to one or more endpoints

Select one or more rows and click Deploy Action to deploy appropriate actions to the selected endpoints.

Open the question in Taniumâ„¢ Interact

Click Go to Interact to open the saved question in Interact where you can view additional question details, ask additional questions, and deploy corrective action to endpoints.
