View the Metrics Palette

The Metrics palette displays, in a single window, the configured key performance indicators (KPI) based on the role of a device. The KPI metrics quickly provide insight into the operation of a device. For example, if the selected device is a host, the KPI metrics displayed on the device dashboard and Metrics palette could include CPU usage (total), disk usage, and memory usage. These KPI metrics let you know how a device is functioning and whether it needs attention. Metrics are shown for the past 24 hours. Use the Edit Metrics () icon in the Metrics palette to add more metrics to the view.
