        Note: The Time Scale is span of time for which metrics are aggregated. Anodot aggregates metrics into 1 minute, 5 minutes, 1 hour, and 1 day intervals. Anodot also computes anomalies on each time scale independently. When viewing metrics in dashboards or the metrics tab, Anodot automatically selects the viewing time scale based on the Time Range selected. The time scale is marked with Auto. This setting can be overwritten.
    7.  [Required] Upper Threshold - set a value greater than or equal to this threshold will trigger the alert.
