Needed someone to discuss this with since I am currently working alone. I have a 'subject' in my product which can be associated with a variable number of objects. Each object has two states.. viz. UP or DOWN. If all the objects associated to a 'subject' are UP then the corresponding subject is in the best condition. If all of them are DOWN then the subject is dead. All intermediate levels denote varying levels optimality in performance. Now the UI for the subject is card/slat based. And I want to show this 'strength', if you will, on the card. I have a few thoughts like:
a) Depicting it similar to the cellphone signal strength on a phone. b) Plotting one dot each for the objects and coloring it red/green. c) Plotting a pie chart - last option. d) showing just the numbers viz - 2(up)/10
Wanted to to check if anyone else has any interesting thoughts regarding this. If it matters, I am on Angular and using d3 for visualization.
