Dynamic Thresholding
Use the Dynamic Thresholding section of the window to indicate whether to enable dynamic threshold functionality for the Network Service and Tracked Applications dashboards.

When this functionality is enabled, the expected range for application response time is calculated based on past observed response times and a dynamic threshold is assigned. An alarm occurs when any network service or tracked application has a response time measured above its dynamic threshold.

The sliders enable you to adjust the sensitivity of the dynamic threshold by increasing or decreasing the size of the expected response time range. Selecting a lower sensitivity means more time is required for an alarm to occur. Alarms are displayed on the Alarms & Events > Alarms tab.
Data Retention
Use this section of the tab to configure the amount of time ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine saves flow data.
