There are a lot of MBean attributes that are monotonically increasing (like messages processed, number of requests, etc.).
Is there a way to graph or chart those values in a delta format?
For example if the attribute is 102 messages for one graphing period and 113 the next time, can we get 11 drawn on the dial/chart?
In the Flight Recorder the rate of change and deltas between the first and last values can be shown, but we don't have this in the JMX Console right now. Let me open an enhancement request on this!
The easy way to do this would be to let dials have a delta mode where they show the difference between the first value since reset and whatever the current value is.
