The Digital Gauge is a numeric display of data you want to track. The Digital Gauge is more efficient and loads the fastest because its load on the system is the least of other Dashboard graphic displays.
The settings for this chart offer additional features such as a Threshold to alert users when certain limits are passed. If the Threshold Value is exceeded, a red triangle displays at the upper right beside the Icon if you choose to select one.

Using the Configuration Section for a Digital Gauge, you can add or select options for your gauge.
