Metrics Update

 

Heuristic Metrics:

Various network related metrics reported by Sysdig, including response times, are calculated at the kernel level by measuring latency between systems calls. In an effort to ensure Sysdig remains the trusted source of infrastructure insights, moving forward we will be labeling some network related metrics as heuristic and are tagging with the symbol heuristic_icon.png in the application.

Please note that existing alerts using these metrics will not be modified or disabled, but you will not be able to update these alerts.

 

Additional heuristic metric details are listed below:

Deprecated Metrics:

Based on low usage patterns, we have decided to deprecate the following metrics on August 1, 2018.

You will continue to have the ability to collect similar data using Prometheus, or another method of code instrumentation (i.e. StatsD or JMX for Java applications).

The table below shows the current metrics and options that you can use to get similar functionality.
