The Metric Insights app provides aggregated metrics data over a period of time for each resource. Users have the option to select a minimum of one metric and a maximum of five metrics from the available list of metrics.

Configuration Parameters

  • Add Query: Use the query to select the entities that you wish to include in the report.
    • Default query: The default query ( state = “active” AND monitorable = “true”) will be populated by default when open metric insight app. Users are able to modify/delete the default query and run his specific query.
    • Using an OpsQL query, you can customize the report result. If users did not select “state” and “monitorable” attributes in the query string, in that case the user selection query would be appended by default with “state” and “monitorable” attributes.
      For example: if a user only selects the agentInstalled attribute, the query will automatically append state = ‘active’ AND monitorable = true
      The query will look like as below:
      (agentInstalled = “true”) AND state = ‘active’ AND monitorable = true
  • Metric Selection: The metric will list out all of the metrics associated with the tenant. You can choose any of the five metrics from the list.
