Note that when there are many violations to display, a "Show More" button will be available. By default, only 10 violations are displayed to improve performance. You can choose to display more using the various options (+10, +100 etc.). By default an upper maximum of 5000 violations is set when the "All" option is clicked. You can change the upper maximum if required (see the violationsCount option in Engineering Dashboard json configuration options).

When no rules have been added to the Education tab, the page will display:

Removed

On selection of the Removed status, the graph will display the number of Violations removed in the current snapshot and the number of Violations removed since initial snapshot for a selected rule. Hovering the mouse pointer over the graph tool tip text displays added violations count, snapshot version and snapshot date for that particular snapshot in the x-axis:

Added 

On selection of the Added status, the graph will display the number of Violations added in the current snapshot and the number of Violations added since initial snapshot for a selected rule. Hovering the mouse pointer over the graph tool tip text displays added violations count, snapshot version and snapshot date for that particular snapshot in the x-axis:

Total

On selection of the Total status , the graph will display the number of Violations in current snapshot, percentage (number) of violations that have Increased since initial snapshot and the percentage of violations that have Increased since previous snapshot for a selected rule.  Hovering the mouse pointer over the graph tool tip text displays added violations count, snapshot version and snapshot date for that particular snapshot in the x-axis:
