Your inventory is the elements that make up your environment, from your java virtual machines to your Amazon EC2s. Metricly’s Inventory Explorer allows you to view and search the elements in your inventory.
The physical or logical components that Metricly monitors are called elements. An element can be a physical entity, such as a server or network element, a virtual entity, such as a transaction, or a business entity, such as a company traded on the stock market. Elements are the base component that Metricly uses to analyze metrics and determine the status of your environment.
All elements share the following characteristics:
An attribute is a property or characteristic that describes an element. Having attributes gives you access to more statistical data that can be used to troubleshoot issues. Most elements receive attributes from their integration.
For example, with attribute information, you can see the number and type of CPU running on a server element, while also viewing an event that was generated based on that element’s CPU value.
Each element has a type that determines how it is processed and represented by Metricly. Element type is also used as a filter in list pages in the UI. The types of elements in your environment will vary based on the integration that you use
