How does the Cockpit application use the Data Point Library? To find the default visualization for a data point like color or label, Cockpit searches the Data Point Library and tries to find a matching entry. An entry is considered as “matching”, if the values for fragment and series in the Data Point Library match those of the measurement. If a matching entry is found, the corresponding data point properties are used for a default visualization.
Additionally, the properties of the Data Point Library are used by threshold business rules: The red and yellow values configured in the Data Point Library are used by the threshold rules to raise alarms.
To open the Data Point Library, click Data Point Library in the Configuration menu of the navigator.
A list of available data points will be opened. For each data point, the following information is provided in the list:
• Color and label for the data point
• Fragment name and series
• Measurement unit
• Values (minimum, maximum, red/yellow ranges)

- Click Add data point in the top menu bar.
- Provide the following information:
Field Description Color Color for the data point visualization Label Label to identify the data point Fragment Name of the fragment Series Name of the series Unit Unit used for the measurement Target Target value Minimum Minimum value shown on the y-axis Maximum Minimum value shown on the y-axis Yellow range Min/max values for the yellow range (MINOR alarms) Red range Min/max values for the red range (CRITICAL alarms)
- Click Save to add the data point to the library.
