Hi Jonathan,

Please refer to the below link to get the detail

Also you can run the below query to determine how many metrics inserted per minute in controller DB.

SELECT from_unixtime(ts_min*60), NOW(), AS application_name, count(distinct(mm.node_id)), count(*) FROM metricdata_min AS mm, application AS a 

WHERE ts_min > (SELECT max(ts_min) - 2 FROM  metricdata_min) AND ts_min < (SELECT max(ts_min) FROM metricdata_min) AND = mm.application_id GROUP BY application_name, 1 ORDER BY 1;

Where do I run these SQL queries? Do I have to actually log on COntroller's DB or can I run it from somewhere on UI? And do I need a certain permission?
