Sunburst View for Sensors with a label



Hi there,

I'm struggling to set up a new view in my library. I'd be very happy if someone could help me. I'm planning to monitor services by summarizing all the sub-services in a new library. So far I added whole trees into the library. It looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/IzQfpqC.png

Now I want to summarize specific sensors which make up whole services by setting tags to them and adding them to the newly created library. Is there a way to group those sensors with the specific tags hierarchically? Now it looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/cEAcFTT.png

Imagine having a service like an intranet. For the intranet to work I have 4 DNS servers, two webservers behind a loadbalancer and of course the http-service. I already got the sensors added to the specific devices. So is there a way to make the sunburst look like the first picture (http://i.imgur.com/IzQfpqC.png) by making whole groups?

Thanks in advance for the help!

If you would like to display groups or devices in the sunburst, please note that the status of sensors within a group/device cannot be displayed, but only group/device status. The same applies if the sensors are filtered by a tag within an object.

If you want to display only specific sensors in the sunburst without their parent devices, you can create a new node in a library for every single sensor and then group nodes as you want, so in the sunburst you will see the status of each node which represents a sensor.
