    The Datasets & metrics page provides an overview of all the metrics – By Dataset and By ETL Module – that your TrueSight Capacity Optimization installation is able to collect and classify. You can access this page by navigating to Administration > Data Warehouse > Datasets & metrics.

    The page contains two tabs – By Dataset and By ETL Module.

    In each tab, metrics are grouped in homogeneous sets called datasets. To easily browse this list, you can filter the By Dataset tab on a particular dataset by using the Dataset drop-down, and the By ETL Module tab by using the ETL Module and System type drop-downs.

    For more information, see: 

    To view datasets by the By Dataset tab

    The By Dataset tab displays the Metrics table. The metrics table in the By Dataset tab is filtered by default on all datasets. To filter it on a particular Dataset, use the Datasets drop-down list.

    The Metrics table in the By Dataset tab displays the following information for each metric.

    ColumnDescription
    Add metricEnables you to add a (custom) metric. See To add a metric.

    Name

    Name of the metric as saved in TrueSight Capacity Optimization.
    LabelExtended (full) name of the metric.
    DescriptionShort description of the metric.
    ValtypeThe Counter and Absolute Value of the metric.
    DatasetThe predefined dataset that the metric belongs to.
    Package

    The metric can be categorized into any one of the following categories:

    • Core: Indicates that the metric is an out-of-the-box metric.
    • Extension for Distributed Systems: Indicates that the metric is added in an extension package.
    • [Custom]: Indicates that the metric is a user defined metric.
    UnitThe measurement unit of the metric.
    LevelIndicates the amount of metric to be imported into the data warehouse.
    EditClick  to edit a (custom) metric. Only Custom metrics can be edited.
    DeleteClick  to delete a (custom) metric. Only Custom metrics can be deleted.

    To add a metric

    To add a custom metric to TrueSight Capacity Optimization, perform the following task:

    1. Navigate to Administration > Data Warehouse > Datasets & metrics > By Dataset and click Add metric.
    2. In the Add metric page, enter values for the following properties:

      PropertyDescription
      ResnameType a name for your custom metric, as you would like for it to be saved in TrueSight Capacity Optimization database. Resname should include uppercase letters, numbers or an underscore character. It must start with Uppercase character and end with the _C suffix.
      NameAn extended name (label) for your metric.
      Description(Optional but recommended) Add a brief description.
      StructureSelect the structure to give to the metric you are adding: Business Driver, Domain, or System.
      DatasetSelect a predefined dataset to associate your metric to.
      ValtypeSelect the Counter and Absolute Value for your metric.
      DirectionSelect a direction for your metric. For details, see Metrics.
      Measurement unitSelect a measurement unit or add a custom unit. For details, see Metrics.
    3. Click Save.

    To view datasets by the By ETL Module tab

    The By ETL Module tab displays the Metrics table. This table contains detailed information and description about each metric that is populated in your TrueSight Capacity Optimization instance by all or a particular ETL module (that you select).

    The metrics table in this tab is filtered by default on all ETL Modules and System Types. To filter it on a particular ETL Module or System Type, use the appropriate drop-down filter.

    The Metrics table in the By ETL Module tab displays the following information for each metric.

    ColumnDescription

    Name

    Name of the metric as saved in BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization.
    LabelExtended (full) name of the metric.
    DescriptionShort description of the metric.
    ETL moduleFull name of the ETL module
    System typeThe type of system the selected ETL is associated with.
    Operating System

    The metric can be categorized into any one of the following categories:

    • N.R. ???
    Extended DescriptionExtended information about the metric, such as retrieval information, and so on.
    Additional details for the metric

    Click to view additional details about a metric. These details include Source type, Source map, and so on.
