CloudMonitor Dashboard Functionality provides the ability for users to customize the view of monitoring data. You can view metric data on a monitoring dashboard across many products and instances in a centralized manner.

You can quickly understand the resource usage of each cloud product by looking at the monitoring tray.

Add a chart

Currently, you can add major cloud product metrics and user business metrics to monitoring dashboards.

If you use multiple types of cloud products for your application, you can add cloud product metrics to the same monitoring dashboard by adding a chart, so that you can view cloud product metrics globally.

When you report your business metric data on the Cloud Monitor API, you can add a monitoring chart to display the metric data in a visualized manner.
