Performing a Quick Filter
This filter allows you to narrow down the data inside a table by applying a filter to a specific table column
or columns. To apply different operators, use the Advanced Filter option (see Performing an Advanced
Filter).
To launch the quick filter, choose Quick Filter from the Filter drop-down list.
To clear the Quick Filter, click Filter.
Performing an Advanced Filter
This filter allows you to narrow down the data in a table by applying a filter using multiple operators
such as Does not contain, Does not equal, Ends with, Is empty, and so on. For example, you can choose
the filter pattern by table column names and the operator from the drop-down list. In addition, you must
enter filter criteria based on the data available in the Prime Infrastructure database.
To launch advanced filtering, choose Advanced Filter from the Filter drop-down list.

Advanced Filter
To save the filter criteria used in the Advanced filter, follow these steps:
Step 1
Enter the advanced filter criteria, then click Go. The data is filtered based on the filter criteria.
Step 2
After the data is filtered, click the Save icon.
Step 3
In the Save Preset Filter dialog box, enter a name for the preset filter and click Save.
Using Dashboard Filters
The Filters toolbar allows you to narrow down the data that is displayed in all of the dashlets in a
dashboard. Use this toolbar to filter the dashlets data by:
•

Data Entry Features
In addition to the check boxes, drop-down lists and data entry fields common in most user interfaces,
Prime Infrastructure uses some specialized data-entry features. These features are designed to keep your
view of the network as uncluttered as possible, while still making it possible for you to add, update, and
save your settings when needed. These specialized data-entry features include:
•
Edit Tables
•
Data Popups
Edit Tables
Prime Infrastructure uses tables to display many kind of data, including lists of sites, devices, and events.
The data is arranged in rows and columns, much like a spreadsheet.
An edit table differs from other tables in that you can add, edit, or delete the data it contains. Some edit
tables also give you access to filters (see Filters). Edit tables are often displayed in data popups that are
triggered by check boxes.
Figure A-4
Edit Table
To use edit tables:
•
To add a new row in the edit table:
Click the (+) icon, complete the fields in the new row, and click Save.
•
To delete one or more existing rows in an edit table:
Select the row header check box (at the extreme left of each row), then click Delete.
•
To update an entry in any field in any edit table row:
Cisco Prime Infrastructure 3.1 User Guide

Prime Infrastructure User Interface Reference
Understanding the Prime Infrastructure User Interface
Click the row header or on the field itself, edit the contents, then click Save.
Data Popups
A data popup is a window associated with a check box, anchored field, or other data-entry feature. It is
displayed automatically when you select a feature, so that you can view or update the data associated
with that feature. In addition to containing check boxes, drop-down lists, and data-entry fields, data
popups can also contain edit tables.
To use a data popup:
1.
Select the feature that triggers the data popup, such as an anchored field or a check box.
2.
With the associated popup displayed, view or update the fields as needed.
3.
When you are finished, click anywhere outside the data popup. If you entered new information or
changed existing information, your changes are saved automatically.

Time-based Graphs
Time-based Graphs
Some graphs display time-based data. For these time-based graphs, Prime Infrastructure provides a link
bar at the top of the graph. The link bar contains a set of links representing standard time-frames (such
as the last six hours, one day, and so on) appropriate for the type of data in the chart. When you select
one of these time-frame links, the data for that time frame is retrieved and the graph is refreshed to show
only the data for that time-frame.
The time-frame links displayed in time-based graphs include the following:
•
6h—Denotes the last six hours of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the current
database table.
•
1d—Denotes the last day (24 hours) of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the
current database table.
•
1w—Denotes the last week (seven days) of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the
hourly aggregated table.
•
2w—Denotes the last two weeks of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the hourly
aggregated table.
•
4w—Denotes the last four weeks of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the hourly
aggregated table.
•
3m—Denotes the last three months of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the daily
aggregated table.
•
6m—Denotes the last six months of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the weekly
aggregated table.
•
1y—Denotes the past year (12 months) of data from the current time. The data is gathered from the
weekly aggregated table.
•
Custom—User-selected time period. You can set the day and time for the start and end dates. The
use of a current or hourly, daily, or weekly aggregated source for data depends upon the selected
start date.
The default, maximum and minimum retention periods for the aggregated data displayed in time-based
graphs are controlled by Prime Infrastructure administrators. For details, see “About Historical Data
Retention” in Related Topics.
