Customer wanted to show just the five mount points with the highest "Space Used Percent" for the Unix or Linux Disk attribute group.
Unfortunately, the Bar Chart widgets in DASH, as well as lot of other widgets, does not allow to specify the amount of rows needed from the dataprovider.
So I tried to look for an alternative solution, leveraging on the filters available for the Bar Chart widget.

Then, to get a sorted output we can select "Space Used Percent" in the field "Sort by Column" and "Descending" as Sort order.
Below you can find some images showing the proposed procedure.
Let's suppose we already have in the Required settings the following values:
In order to obtain what I suggested above, we have to expand the Optional Settings and provide the suggested information as follow:
Save the changes.
Hope it helps !!
