Button - Sometimes called a process icon. A Spotlight component that contains a single value that represents the state or existence of a process.
Data flow - Panels in the Spotlight home page may be connected to other panels by data flows that show the rate at which data is moving through a system. As the rate increases, so does the speed of the flow.
Gage - A Spotlight component that shows a measurement as a continuous range of possible values.
Queue - Spotlight component that shows a measurement as a range of discrete values. The globe at the end of the queue is an alarm indicator.
Container - A cylindrical component that fills up as the value it measures increases. Normally used to indicate file size or disk usage.
|Spinner - Spotlight component that shows a measurement as a rotating wheel. The higher the value, the faster the speed of rotation.|
