Viewing a Custom Metric Chart

Example Metric Chart

The following image shows several metric streams in the graph view of a metric chart. Each metric stream corresponds to a compute instance.

The 85% value at 1:30 indicates that a compute instance used 85% of its CPU (averaged over the specified interval). Absent values are indicated for a metric stream toward the bottom of the graph, indicating that a compute instance didn't emit metric data until 1:30.

Metric streams and values in a graph.

Very small or large values are indicated by International System of Units (SI units), such as M for mega (10 to the sixth power). Units correspond to the selected metric and don’t change by statistic .
