may I ask what kind of information (sensors) you would like to visualize with pie-charts?

Best Regards.

Yes, any sensors where you might choose stacking. Essentially, I would use it in the same way I use data tables in maps. Looking through the list of available sensors I can only imagine it being used for custom sensors or sensor factories. For example, I wrote a custom sensor that returns the databases on a volume along with the remaining free space. I have another one that displays the % CPU time for each database on a server. I also envision this being useful for sensor factories, where you want to compare multiple servers to each other. Perhaps the % CPU on a series of servers in a farm, etc.

Let me know if you need further clarification.

I understand, but PIE-Charts will lack the information about time, and that might be a very important one. For example it's a huge difference if a CPU has a usage of 99% for a very short seconds-spike or for the last half hour. And a pie-chart will not be able to tell you that.
