Metric Summary

The Metric Summary widget is used for showing current and aggregate metric values in a tabular form. Like most widgets, you can scope the results to specific instances and metrics using a variety of filtering options. Also, pick from several configurable columns that you can add to the summary table to display availability/SLA, min, max, avg values. Tune the specific order of the columns as well as the sorting of rows.

Use case 

The Metric Summary widget is useful when:

  • You want to display the current status of the metrics in an instance or a group of instances.

  • You want to display the historical availability, averages, and outage information of the selected metrics.

Example 

Linux servers status and availability 

In this example, the widget displays the status and availability (24 hours) of all Linux servers. The Outages: 24 hours data point is also enabled, which shows the number of incidents that occurred on the Linux instance. 

You can also hover your mouse to an incident to show the details. Selecting the Incident ID will redirect you to the incident's page.
