METRICS ๐Ÿ”—

Metric Name Description
cpu_idle The percentage of time that the CPU is idle.
cpu_nice The percentage of time that the CPU is handling processes with a positive nice value, which have a lower scheduling priority.
cpu_steal As AWS allocates hypervisor CPU resources among increasing numbers of instances, virtualization load rises, and can affect how often the hypervisor can perform requested work on an instance.
cpu_system The percentage of time that the CPU is handling system operations.
cpu_user The percentage of time that the CPU is handling user operations.
cpu_waitio The percentage of time that the CPU is waiting for input/output operations.
load_1 The load averaged over a one-minute window.
load_15 The load averaged over a 15-minute window.
load_5 The load averaged over a five-minute window.
memory_buffers The amount of buffered memory.
memory_cached The amount of cached memory.
memory_free The amount of free memory.
memory_swap The amount of swap space.
memory_total The total amount of memory.
memory_used The amount of memory in use.
procs The number of active processes.
