How to see most current metric data, most recent one and also in retrospective, but in one picture? Is that possible? Yes, it is.
I guess the simple radar in a plane or ship cockpit refreshes current data on a top of most recent and shows approaching "future". The SEDS control chart is similar and uses the border line to separate current data and most recent one. Plus it gives a historical base-line to show you what can be expected and for comparison.
I believe it is powerful way to visualize IT Systems Performance, so I made up a name for that chart: "IT-CHART".
(Not only because IT is my initials....)
I plan to add the pictures from this blog as additional slides to my CMG'09 workshop, which includes the R-script to build IT-CHART based on CSV input. (see abstract here)
I have got the comment on my previous post “ BIRT based Control Chart “ with questions about how actually in BIRT the data are prepared for ...

IT-Chart: The Best Way to Visualize IT Systems Performance
He started in 1979 as IBM/370 system engineer. In 1986 he got his PhD. in Robotics at St. Petersburg Technical University (Russia) and then worked as a professor teaching CAD/CAM, Robotics for 12 years. He published 30+ papers and made several presentations for conferences related to the Robotics and Artificial Intelligent fields. In 1999 he moved to the US, worked at Capital One bank as a Capacity Planner. His first CMG.org paper was written and presented in 2001. The next one, "Exception Detection System Based on MASF Technique," won a Best Paper award at CMG'02 and was presented at UKCMG'03 in Oxford, England. He made other tech. presentations at IBM z/Series Expo, SPEC.org, Southern and Central Europe CMG and ran several workshops covering his original method of Anomaly and Change Point Detection (Perfomalist.com). Author of “Performance Anomaly Detection” class (at CMG.com). Worked 2 years as the Capacity team lead for IBM, worked for SunTrust Bank for 3 years and then at IBM for 3 years as Sr. IT Architect. Now he works for Capital One bank as IT Manager at the Cloud Engineering and since 2015 he is a member of CMG.org Board of Directors. Runs UT channel iTrubin
