The CPU usage chart allows one to see the CPU usage for the last minute, last two minutes or last five minutes. The memory usage gauge allows one to see the current memory usage, the average memory usage or the maximum memory usage. In addition, all monitoring counters display the minimum, maximum and average values on the counter's status bar. In order to open a data chart for a monitoring counter, press the 'Chart' button located in the top-right corner of the counter. The data chart dialog provides the ability to view and export the counter's monitoring data. In addition, the user is provided with the ability to pause, resume and reset the monitor.
