Reviewing Metrics

Every metric in the system is available on the "Collect:Metrics" page. Basic information about the metric and the check from which the metric came are available.

The graph navigation in this view works identically to the navigation in an individual check metric detail section. See "Editing a Check" in this manual.

Additionally, you can navigate to the check view via the "view check" button.

There are two layout styles available for the Metrics Page, a grid view and a list view. These options can be selected and modified using the "Layout Options" dialog, which you can find by clicking the "Tuner" icon next to the Menu, which exposes the "Grid Size" selector:

The "Grid Size" selector lets you re-size the grid so you can have small- or large-sized metric graphs.

Metrics Grid View

The grid-style layout provides you with an easy way to view a graph for each metric in the list, and lets you select as many metrics as you want and easily create a graph out of them.

The action menu in the bottom right corner of each metric allows you to select the metric, quickly jump to that metric's check details page, view/set/delete rules for that metric on the Rulesets page, quickly add that metric to a new graph, or view that metric's uptime report.

Grid view also lets you easily create new graphs. Use the action menu to select any number of metrics in the grid and they will be highlighted as "selected." Then use the Menu at the top and click "Create Graph" and you will create and title a new graph containing your selected metrics.

Metrics List View

A tiny graph called a "sparkline" is available in the "Visualization" column (see the above screenshot). Sparklines can be useful for seeing trends and spikes at a glance.

Metrics that are no longer being actively collected are presented in light grey.

Clicking the "View" button of a metric will take you to a detail page for that metric. Clicking the arrow next to the View button will open a menu with the same controls as described in the Grid View above:
