Calculated Metrics

The calculated metrics panel lets you create attributes that are calculated from existing monitor attributes. The metric attribute legend assigns a letter value to each monitor attribute. The Reassign button reassigns the letters. This is useful if some attributes have been deleted and their letters are no longer used.

The Configured Metrics table lists the calculated metrics. An edit and delete action appears to the right of each row. The Add button creates a new calculated metric and the Remove All button deletes all the calculated metrics.

Clicking on the Add button or edit button displays the calculation editor.

This panel contains the following properties:

Name -- The attribute name to be displayed for the calculation

Type -- Calculation Type - Gauge or Counter

Units -- Units string to appear in graphs

Max Value -- Maximum value to be used in graphing (0 = no max)

Formula -- The formula for the calculation using the assigned formula codes from the metric attribute legend.
