We’ve put together a short list of the basics for managing your metrics data:
- Packaging your code to send custom application metrics.
- Understanding downsampling and data compaction over time. This is important for selecting max/min/sum/avg variables as data points and interpreting dashboards.
- Figuring out which data is available in your Metrics account.
- Taking shortcuts using Logz.io’s pre-configured dashboard templates. So you never have to start from scratch.
