One of the solution is to install the flash plugin manually. Here are the steps to  do it on Linux server (Redhat linux 5/6, Oracle Linux 5/6)

 rpm -ivh flash-plugin-

3. Until this point, you may think you have already installed the Flash player Plugin. But not really, if you click the performance tab,you would  still be asked to install the flash plugin. why?

ln -s /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

5. Now when you click the Performance tab, you are able to see the clear picture of the database performance page:
