Please check if the ability to use Temporary Tags and save them as permanent tags in custom views fits with your requirements.
Here's the link to related product documentation: Working with tag filters - Documentation for BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization 11.5 - BMC Documentation
+ link to the video (embedded also in doc) that show you how to leverage this capability: Temporary Tags in Capacity Views | TrueSight Capacity Optimization - YouTube
If your use case it is not addressed by the feature above please submit an idea for it.
Maria, I will have a look at your references. However, is the description of my experience familiar to you should the filters be relaxed to the point where all 'Virtual Machine - VMware" servers become the result set of the query for data?
I'm not sure I got your question but I'll try to address it.
If you are already filtering data related to 'VMware VMs' within the datamarts of course usage of tag filtering could be helping you to further distinguish between for example Prod and Not-Prod instances since the results in the page in this case will be already listing all your VMware VMs.
HI Maria, the initial context was that by clearing tags it resulted in a error. I am guessing it errored because it was getting data for all servers of a particular type.
Trying to understand if the Presentation Server tries to protect itself by NOT attempting to go after metrics for ALL “vmware – virtual machines” as a result of “clearing tags”.
