Use for Analysis vs Monitoring

What are the differences between the Analysis and Monitoring pre-configurations for a dashboard? Why should I use one over the other?

Analysis has a bright white background and no auto-refresh by default so it is better for dashboards you may want to log into to investigate issues or site performance.

Monitoring dashboards have the night mode and a refresh interval by default which makes them more suited for a NOC style monitoring dashboard that is constantly displayed and updated.

You can easily make one into the other with the most noticeable difference of 'night mode' being able to be displayed in the dashboard design properties tab. They are just the two most common configurations so it makes sense to have them be the two options to select from as a starting point.
