Introduction:
CA Performance Management (CAPM) can be integrated with CA Network Flow Analysis (NFA).

NFA can synchronize Aggregate Interfaces configured in NFA, as well as standard Interfaces, to CAPM for reporting.

Data is seen in Group based Dashboards for NFA contributed Interface items.

Data is not seen in Group based Dashboards for NFA contributed Aggregate Interface items. These items only show data in their individual Context based Dashboards or Views.
Question:
Why do Dashboards for NFA data, based on Group membership that contains Aggregate Interfaces, never show the data?
Environment:
All supported CA Performance Management releases
Answer:
Due to a limitation whereby existing Views are not capable of displaying data for disparate item types.

Interfaces contributed from NFA are assigned the item type "interface".
Aggreage Interfaces contributed from NFA are assigned the item type "ainterface".

Due to the difference they are not able to be displayed in the same Views.
