RRDI trends on custom fields

Yehiel Glass (25538986) | asked Sep 02 '14, 2:14 a.m.


Is it possible to run trend report for custom attributes ?

I know that I should use matrix for creating trend report, but I didn't see any 'Request String Extension' in the Request Matrix.

* Where can I find guide for creating trend report for custom fields ?

Hello Yehiel,

the custom attributes are not present in the metrics that provide trending data.
The only thing that could come close to it are the history tables like Request History String Extension.
However those just list the different values that the custom attribute had, so you will need to extract the trending data yourself from that and this can be complex.
