In this dashboard you will find a set of quick action buttons:

Maximize/Minimize -- Allows for expanding the dashboard to fit the entire display area, or shrinking it back to its original position;

Export to CSV -- Saves a CSV file containing events graphically displayed in dashboard. The list of exported events matches the number set in Max. no. of items drop-down selection;

Export Dashboard Object -- Creates an export of dashboard's definition in proprietary format;

Graph selection -- Opens a drop-down list of graphical formats available for dashboards, allowing you to quickly change the graphical display format for that dashboard. Changing the display format here does not change the dashboard definition and the change will be reverted on the next load;

Edit dashboard -- Allows you to edit and permanently change the dashboard definition;

Show items option allows you to change the max number of entries that are displayed in dashboard. Since the purpose of Dashboard interface is to provide a quick glance of monitored environment in real-time, the maximum number of events that can be displayed is limited;

A show/hide button Alt text allows you to either show or hide the items list from view. The number of listed items depends on Max. no. of items set for that dashboard;
