My Virtual Meters created in Hierarchy Manager don't show any available measurements when setting up a Gadget in PME 8.1 Dashboards

Issue:

The Virtual Meters set up using Hierarchy Manager show no measurements while trying to setup a gadget utilizing the "Display only Measurements with historical data" checkbox in PME 8.1 Dashboards.



Product Line:
Power Monitoring Expert 8.1

Environment:
Power Monitoring Expert Software Configuration
Power Monitoring Expert Software Diagrams

Cause:
The Hierarchy Manager does not support measurement availability, hence the "Display only Measurements with historical data" under Show Advanced removes all measurements when a Hierarchy Manager Virtual Meter is selected

Resolution:
UNCHECK the "Display only Measurements with historical data" checkbox under Show Advanced and search for your desired measurement from the "Search measurements..." search box.  This will allow you to select the desired measurements.  The image below shows how Virtual Meters should be used in Dashboards in PME 8.1.
