Viewing Default Metric Charts for a Single Resource

Go to a resource's details page in the Console to view metric charts that use predefined service queries for that resource. The charts show metric data for the selected resource.


To access resource-specific metric charts from other pages in the Console (including the Service Metrics page), select a resource-specific dimension. See Selecting Dimensions on the Service Metrics Page.

For information about directly editing MQL expressions and changing queries by using the CLI or API in this context, see Selecting a Resource for a Query.

On the page for the resource of interest, under Resources, click Metrics.

For example, to view metric data for a Compute instance: 

  1. Open the navigation menu and click Compute. Under Compute, click Instances.
  2. Click the name of the instance that you want to see metrics for.

  3. On the instance details page, under Resources, click Metrics.

    The page displays a chart for each metric. For a list of metrics related to Compute instances, see Compute Instance Metrics.

The Console displays the last hour of metric data for the selected resource. The page shows a chart (graph) for each metric emitted by the selected resource.

For example, default charts for a Compute instance include CPU Utilization and Memory Utilization.

For a list of metrics emitted by the resource, see Supported Services.

For query troubleshooting, see Troubleshooting Queries.
