CloudMonitor:Manage namespaces

Last Updated:Feb 02, 2024

A namespace is a repository that stores monitoring metrics. Hybrid Cloud Monitoring uses namespaces to store the metric data of Alibaba Cloud, self-managed data centers, third-party cloud services, Prometheus, on-premises logs, Simple Log Service logs, and custom metric data. You can also create dashboards for metric data and view monitoring charts on the dashboards.
