Network Map

Container

You can use the container object to display performance graphs generated externally by other programs within APM. It is an advanced and optional feature that can be used to enhance the visuals of your maps.

To add a container to your map, go to Edit Map | Add Special | Container, and select the area of your map where you want to position the container. Next, provide a link in the “url” field that points to the external graph you wish to include in your map. Leave the other default options as is then click “Save”. Repeat the steps for any additional containers that you wish to add to your map.

If you want to get more information about the other available parameters, read bellow.
