MGM RPO graphs embedded in CSM GUI

We have 19 x DS8000 MGM sessions. All of them are managed by CSM.
We need a graph (one for each MGM session) ,embedded in CSM GUI, with RPO behaviour over time.
We are an outsourcer for banks and customers are asking us to certify the RPO over the time we're providing to them.
We cannot manage it via the csv logs : we need to have RPO graphs embedded in CSM GUI without any need to download csv and to dig into the data to produce graphs.
The need is to have a graph with detailed RPO values for the last month and an averaged value for the previous months up to 1 year (average RPO value for each month would be ideal).
Graphs should be downloaded easily from CSM GUI.

    Just saw a new vote for this. The majority of this work has been implemented and is now in CSM 6.2.10 and higher. If there is something specific you are looking for, please provide what additional changes in particular you'd like to see.

    First phase of this was delivered in CSM 6.2.10!!! Customers can now view historical RPO information on DS8000 sessions using GM. Future releases will add in additional support such as graphing LSS OOS statistics.

    This is an excellent suggestion and one we intend to implement. This is not committed at this time but we are currently targeting a solution for sometime later this year.
