Edit a Metric

Use the UI to edit metric properties for any metric in a specific metric family. When you edit a metric, the metric family is extended automatically with the new values.
You can edit metric properties for any metric in a specific metric family using

You can only edit metrics that
DX NetOps Performance Management
is polling (the value in the
Polled
column on the
Metrics
tab is set to "True").
