    You can press ESC or click the icon in the top-right corner to exit the full screen mode.

    Viewing Data by Using Variable Selector

    If you have many instances, you can define a template variable to dynamically switch tags, so that you can view the monitoring data of different instances in the same monitoring chart.

    Note:

    To create a template variable, please see Basic Configuration.

    Adjusting the Time Span of Charts to View Monitoring Data

    By default, dashboards display the data of the last 12 hours.

    You can adjust the time span and granularity for all charts in the current dashboard by using the time selector in the top-right corner of the dashboard. In this way, you can review historical monitoring data and perform troubleshooting.
