With MetricsView Platform you can monitor statistical metrics from devices and servers within your environment such as memory, CPU, disk usage, etc. MetricsView setup includes the following steps:

  1. Creating a new MetricsView Collector.
  2. Installing the MetricsView software on the target host.
  3. Setting up a MetricsView Task.

See quick start PDF tutorial MetricsView Setup Guide.

Statistical data should be presented in numerical terms of the floating-point.

Creating a New MetricsView Collector

MetricsView uses collectors to receive and aggregate performance counters, or server statistics data, from associated devices. Find how to create and configure collectors from the provided articles:

If you already have a MetricsView Collector setup and running in your environment that is capable of collecting the data for the current task, you can simply select the collector while configuring MetricsView tasks.

Downloading and Installing the MetricsView Software on the Host

To collect statistical data, MetricsView uses software installed and run locally on your host, gathering statistical data and sending it to Dotcom-Monitor.

To install MetricsView software, see the corresponding article:

MetricsView Agent System Requirements

  • 2-core CPU or higher
  • 4GB RAM
  • 2 GB hard drive space+1MB per monitoring results saved
  • OS Windows Server 2012 or higher x 64bit / Windows 8 or higher (64bit) or Supported Versions of Linux
  • .NET Framework 4.7

Setting up a MetricsView Task to use the new Agent/Collector

After you have created a new collector and install MetricsView Agent, you need to create a new MetricsView Device on the Device Manager page.

After a Custom Collector and Custom Collector Task are configured, the next step is to program an application to interact with the MetricsView API. For a detailed overview of the available methods in the API, please visit the MetricsView Custom Collector API Methods page.
