About this task

Use forecasting to predict trends in metric graphs based on historical data.

    The Forecast graph metric dialog appears.

  2. Select the date and time for the end of the predicted trend timeframe.

    The forecast displays the predicted metric trend for the selected timeframe.


    The example forecast above shows that the node disk usage will double from 20% to 40% in one month. In this case, admins should consider adding capacity now.
