Display Customs Metrics using Wildcard in Dashboard

Display Customs Metrics using Wildcard in Dashboard

Hi,

I am trying to setup a dashboard which would display customs metrics. Instead of selecting series one by one, I am trying to use wildcard selecting metrics.

It works fine for Tiers/Servers/Business/Overall data but there I have not found a way to select the same for customs metrics.

I followed this link:

https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO43/Specify+Metrics+in+Multiple+Entities+Using+a+Wildcard

Thanks for your help.

Did you get a solution for this? I have the same issue with a customExtension.

Re: Display Customs Metrics using Wildcard in Dashboard

This is how you can use wildcards with Custom Metrics in a dashboard.   This works great with all of the Metric Data widgets except for Metric Value (since this widget needs to refer to a single metric).   

 

1. Create a Metric widget, select Tier / Node Health - Hardware, JVM, CLR as the Metric Category.

2. Select the metric, and choose Specify a Relative Metric Path

NOTE: If you are copying the full metric path from the Metric Browser, make sure to remove the part of the path leading up to Custom Metrics|.  It should follow the format Custom Metrics|YourExtension|*|MetricName

 

3. You can use mutliple wildcards and they work as expected:

Let me know how it goes!

Re: Display Customs Metrics using Wildcard in Dashboard

Hi Carl,

 

I have a similar issue and have done as you suggested. When I add the full relative path, it works (example below), but I only get the one value:

 

Custom Metrics|SQL|oracle|Tablespace Free|TABLE1|PERCENT_FREE

 

When I change TABLE1 in the above to an asterisk (shown below), I get "No Data Available."

 

Custom Metrics|SQL|oracle|Tablespace Free|*|PERCENT_FREE

 

I am trying to create a series graph that shows the percent free from all tables instead of the just the one.

 

Any help is much appreciated!
