Hide/unhide chart elements

To hide or unhide a displayed chart element, select that element's name below the chart. The chart display will adjust to reflect the absence or presence of that element.

Drag right or left on any area of the chart to zoom in on the selected range.

View page data for a specific time period

From the New Relic menu bar, select an available option from the time picker. (Default is the last 30 minutes, ending now.)

Change your account settings, notifications, or user preferences To change settings or preferences related to your account, select the accounts dropdown.

Share charts and data

Additional standard features help you designed to share chart information:

  • Create a permalink to share chart details for a specific time period via a URL. At the bottom of the webpage, select Permalink, and then copy the URL or select the Clipboard icon. This is useful for sharing an interesting time window or troubleshooting problems that occurred at a specific time.
  • Generate embed code for charts to share app performance visualizations with others.
  • Add public or private notes to a chart. For example, if there is a spike in non-web transactions response time, add a note explaining what may have caused it.
  • Use Kiosk mode to hide menu bars during demos, advertisements, or trade shows. At the bottom of the page, select arrows-alt Kiosk mode. To disable kiosk mode, select the arrow arrows-alt icon in the upper right corner.

Add charts to an Insights dashboard

Some charts added via the Add to Insights dashboard chart option may not support changing the value function. To change the value function for the metric, use the Metric Explorer to find and chart it.

To add any compatible chart to an Insights dashboard:

  1. Mouse over the chart.
  2. Select Add to an Insights Dashboard.
  3. Select a recently viewed dashboard (helpful when adding many charts to the same dashboard), search for an existing dashboard, or create a new dashboard. To pin to a dashboard in a different account, select the account from the Into account dropdown.
  4. Enter a chart name (maximum length: 255 characters).
  5. Select the green [check icon] check mark icon.

Once you have finished adding charts to a dashboard, you can jump directly to that dashboard by selecting the green Go There button.

Charts created with a custom time frame, regardless of their method of creation, cannot have their time frame edited at a later time.
