#Inventory Page

Delete an Element

You can delete an element from the Inventory Explorer page. Deleting an element in Metricly persists only until the next collection cycle unless the element is also no longer being collected or posting to Metricly. The metadata for a deleted element is retained for 60 days. Stale metadata (old metrics no longer collecting, attributes and tags that no longer exist) gets permanently deleted. The band analytic history for metrics associated with the deleted element is retained for 90 days.

Element Detail Panel

The Element Detail panel displays tabs for the metric summary, policies, and relationships associated with the selected element. Summary Tab The Summary tab displays a dashboard full of select widgets to highlight the most important details of the selected element. Policies Tab The Policies tab offers the same functionality as the Policies Page except the Policies tab only displays policies that include the selected element in the policy’s scope. Below is a picture of an EC2’s policies tab.


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. About Elements 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.

Quickbar Actions

The inventory page allows you to quickly navigate through all of your elements, sort, and perform bulk actions. The Inventory Explorer displays all the elements in your environment that were processed in the last hour. Elements are removed from the elements table roughly seven hours after an associated datasource is disabled. Use the Quick Bar Select the elements you’d like to edit using the checkboxes on the far left of each row.

Sort Elements

Select two or more elements and then click View Metrics to open multiple elements on the Metrics page. The Elements table initially has six columns: Type: Shows icon for an element’s type. You can see all the icons here. Name: Name of the element. Data Collection: The percentage of metrics that were collected in the last analytics cycle (5 minutes).If no metrics were collected, there could have been an issue with collection or too many metrics were collected, which forces Metricly to not collect any metrics.

Start or Stop Maintenance

You can place elements into maintenance mode from the Inventory Explorer or via the Metricly CLI (Command Line Interface). While an element is in maintenance mode, learning for that element is disabled (i.e. no contextual or baseline bands will be displayed) and events will not be generated for the element. Open the Inventory Explorer. Select the check box next to as many elements as desired. Click Start or Stop Maintenance at the top of the Inventory Explorer table.
