Metric Expressions Workflow

Metric Expressions can be created in the:

  • Dashboard tile
  • Metrics window
  • Alerts window

BUILDING A METRIC EXPRESSION 

Metric expressions consist of:

  • Searching for metrics – property-based or raw.
  • Optional: Applying analytics – Add functions to metric expressions to create valuable metric analytics.
  • Visualizing the resultant time series in the chart area.
  • [Dashboard only] Adding an optional Selector in the expression.
  • [Dashboard only] Adding an additional expression.
  • Deciding what to do with the result of the metric displayed on the expression tree:
    • If an expression tree contains a function, create a composite metric for current or future use
    • Add to a dashboard
    • Create an alert
