Process group dashboard tile missing

I have noticed that process group tile was removed from dashboards. I have used it to visualize requests to apachehttp, tomcat servers at customer's dashboards.
It's possible to create custom tile however in
process group tile I was able to see which one process in pg is
performing badly (has lower number of requests). In custom graph tile i cannot immediately decide which process in monitored group has lower number of requests.What was purpose of removing this tile from dashboards ?


tileType of mentioned tile is "PROCESS_GROUPS_ONE"

The metric "Processes - Request Count" filtered by a process group tag should give you what you're looking for, right?

this will produce custom graph tile, where you cannot decide specific lines per process. when you choose top list, then you can see process name but without history.

process group tile was pretty useful for us (we can see if one process processes less requests than other in one tile), is there a good reason why it was removed ?

All our decisions are based on thorough consideration. In this case those reasons are supportability and performance/stability.

If I understand you correctly, you're missing the chart legend to see which color corresponds to which process. This will be added in the course of the following months. Until then, I'd advise you to put a toplist chart next to the line chart on your dashboard.

ok then, we will wait. should we expect that existing configured tiles in customer's dashboards will dismiss in some of next releases ?

Yes, those will be transformed into regular custom charts as well.
