Metric Summaries in the Resources Minitab

When the Indicators minitab is selected, you can use the controls in the Resources minitab on the left side of the page to display information about metrics collected for the current resource and resources directly related to it.

You checkmark one or more of the resources listed in the Resources minitab, and then choose All Metrics or Problem Metrics to display all available metrics, or only those with measurements that were out-of-bounds or fired alerts during the metric display range. When you click View Metrics the metrics that meet your are listed.

For example, in the the screenshot below, the Resources minitab lists all of the metrics collected for the current platform, and all of the metrics collected for a Tomcat server running on the platform. The OOB and Alerts columns for a metric show how many times the metric was out-of-bounds or fired an alert
