Trend Generation Configuration

Is the trend generation configuration just for calculating the trend line within a given set of dimensions/metrics for charting?

Example : Clicking on the Series in the charting dmi tab and selecting trend line?

Mainly wondering if this is just for reporting/charting and shouldnt impact alerting which is mainly based on baselining. Looking to save some nightly task time by trimming some of the trend generation and just looking for any suggestions/clarification.

Hi William,

Trend generation does not affect baselines and is only used in charting. You can disable trend generation for specific dimensions to reduce the amount of time nightly tasks take to complete.

Just a heads up, the trend generation does impact data aggregation and could impact long term reporting for specific dimension/metric combinations

In what way does it impact?

Unchecking a particular dimension/metric combination for trend generation will also disable aggregation of the data (hourly, monthly, etc resolutions).
