A Metrics View displays the Metrics maps associated with a Server or Service. 

On this page:


A metrics view can be either enabled () or disabled(). Once enabled, a Metrics View may degrade the performance of the instrumented server or service. 


An Metrics View provides the following actions, from its contextual menu and  from the Tools > Metrics View menu:

  • Enable
    Enable this Metrics View.

  • Disable
    Disable this Metrics View.

Metrics Report

The Metrics Report panel shows the maps included in the Metrics View. The columns of the maps include the metrics themselves (for example, the total number of operations dispatched by the server since the Metrics view was enabled) and computed values (for example, the average lifetime of an operation dispatch, since the Metrics view was enabled).

Tool tips on each column describe the metrics or computed value displayed by the column.

IceGrid Admin retrieves the latest metrics every 5 seconds and automatically refreshes the current Metrics Report.

Note that IceGrid Admin displays only non-empty metrics maps; for example, if a server does not make any remote invocation, its Invocation map is empty and will not be displayed.
