Creating a Meter Tile

A Meter allows you to show the main summary statistic of a single metric. It reduces the metric to a single numeric value by looking at the max, min, average, current or sum of values in the metric. In addition, the Meter provides a color-threshold indicator of the statistic or the tile background.
