Displaying and manipulating statistic charts

You can view a chart of historical or real-time performance statistics. Use a real-time chart to view a current performance problem or assess current peak usage. Use a historical chart to monitor statistics over period of time.

Before you begin

Before you chart statistics that are in vastly different number ranges -- for example, dead mail, which has a usual range of 0 to 10, and disk space, which might be in gigabytes -- enable Autoscale. Disable Autoscale when you chart statistics that all have a low number range, for example, from 0 to 500
