Historical data presented in graphic for a period of one month minumum.

The text below explain what we had in ITM 6.3 and what we wanted to have in APM 8.1.4. Because this enhancement does not meet IBM strategic initiatives for APM v8 we would like to have this feature in IBM Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management.

We have moved from ITM v6.3 to Cloud APM v8.1.4 and we want to see data for multiple days in the same widget/view like we can in ITM shown on picture KAFLOMNI1_CPU rather than comparing data from today to the same time period for another day or comparing data from two days within 30 days back like we can in APM. In APM using attribute details as shown on picture KAFLOMNI1_CPU_APM when we select 24h and 5 days ago we can see data for only 2 days but not for 5 days. Also in APM using custom views as shown on picture KAFLOMNI1_CPU_APM_1 we can see data for only 1 day.

In ITM we can see data from 30 days back for every day and we would like to have that feature in APM also, so we can create montly report for customers.
