Querying Metrics of Cloud Services

Cloud Eye provides multiple built-in metrics based on the attribute of each service. After you enabled one cloud service on the cloud platform, the system automatically associates its metrics based on the service type. Monitoring of these metrics helps you accurately grasp the service running status.

This section describes how to view monitoring data of a cloud service resource.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left to select a region and a project.
  3. Under Management & Deployment, select Cloud Eye.
  4. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Cloud Service Monitoring. Locate the target resource and click View Metric in the Operation column.
    On the displayed window, you can view graphs based on raw data collected in the last 1h, 3h, or 12h. In the upper right corner of the graph, the maximum and minimum values of the metric in the corresponding time periods are dynamically displayed.

    By default, 12 graphs can be displayed on one page. If the number of metrics of a service is more than nine, you can click Load more to view more graphs.

    Metric units can be changed between byte or byte/s and GB or GB/s on graphs. When you are changing the unit, if the maximum value of a metric is smaller than 10^ (-5), both the maximum value and the minimum value of this metric are 0. In addition, all data displayed on the graph is 0.

  5. If you want to view metric details, hover your mouse over a graph and click in the upper right corner.

    In the upper left corner, you can see six default monitoring periods: 1h, 3h, 12h, 1d, 7d, and 30d. You can also view the alarm history for any period during the last six months by customizing the monitoring period.

    In the upper left of the graph, you can click Settings to configure the rollup method.

    • If 1h, 3h, 12h, or 1d is selected, raw data is displayed by default.
    • If 7d or 30d is selected, rolled-up data is displayed by default.
