Creating and viewing composite metrics
Composite metrics are new metrics which have a value that is an average of a collection of existing metrics. You must have at least two metrics that use the same Unit of Measurement (UoM) to create a composite metric.
Use custom Views to save frequently created composite metrics. For instance, you can create a average composite metric using the CPU Utilization (percent) for multiple servers in your organization.
To create a composite metric
- Find a metric that you want to use for creating a composite metric.
For example, CPU Utilization (percent).
- Click and search for another metric that uses the same UoM or the same metric belonging for another source.
- Click from the search results to add the metric. If required, add more metrics to the comparison.
- After adding all the metrics, click
If your chart has multiple sets of metrics that have the same UoM, add multiple composite metrics.
and use the Composite section to create a composite metric. Select one of the available options to create a composite metric that represents the average, sum, minimum, or maximum of the metrics with the same UoM.
