Using the Utilization Graph

To see the values for the Utilization Graph, as well as to customize the output, choose Tools > Options and open the Graph tab. This tab identifies the Utilization graph queues by color, and allows you to customize the graph.


This column tells you the current scale for each property.

The vertical scale on the Utilization Graph always goes from 0 to 100. This represents zero to one hundred percent of the scale. Each value has its own scale. By default, all scales are 5, meaning that values are expected to be in a range of 0 to 20, scaled (by 5) to the range 0 to 100. If a value becomes greater than 20, the scale is automatically adjusted such that the largest value is at 100.

To determine the maximum value in the display, divide the scale into 100. For example, if the TCP/IP work queue scale is 2.381, then the maximum value is ( 100 / 2.381 ) = 42. The actual maximum isn't usually important. What is important is that values towards the top of the graph are approaching the largest currently-known value for the given property—in other words, the peak load for that property as observed in the current monitoring session.

When the graphs are consistently towards the top of the display and you notice that synchronization throughput is down, you may have a performance problem that needs investigation. Similarly, if one or more values creeps upward over time without diminishing, then there is likely a performance problem. note that the graphs may often be towards the top of the display with MobiLink server performing well. This just means that MobiLink server is busy and doing its job well.


One of your customization choices is antialiasing. Antialiasing makes the graph look better, but can be slower to draw.
