  • To start dynamic graphing so you can view graphical relationships between the entities you select from the results of a search or between the entities you select from an entity group:

    1. Do one of the following:

      • Search for all application or process entities or only the specific application or process entities you want to view. For information about searching for entities, see Searching Entities.

      • Create a group of application or process entities. For information about using the Request Browser to create an entity group, see Request Browser.

    2. From the results displayed on the Request Search Results page or in the Request Browse Results section on the Browse <Entity_Type> Requests page, select one or more application or process entities.

      Note: If you select entities of more than one type, all entities are ignored unless one of the entity types is application—then only the application entities are displayed. If you select entities of a type other than application or process, nothing is displayed.

      The Dynamic Graphing button is enabled.

    3. Click Dynamic Graphing.

      The dynamic graphing page opens and the selected entities are displayed.

  • Tip: To quickly zoom in and out of a displayed graph, use the scroll wheel on the mouse.

    To reposition the graph, drag the cursor on the graph and move it to the desired position.
