I am charting CPU usage for containers, and I was hoping to display average utilization in conjunction with percentile utilization metrics on the same dashboard.
However I noticed that when I select a percentile value for aggregation, Dynatrace simply shows the me the average value twice (see screenshot). Why is this the case? Does Dynatrace not calculate percentiles for system usage metrics?

Hi @j_butzow . Not all metrics are capable of aggregate as percentile.
This one you are currently using, the builtin:containers.cpu.usageMilliCores, can be aggregated as auto, avg, max, min only.
You can check the aggregation possibilities in the metric page:
You can also find metrics that accept the percentile aggregation in the docs, https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/observe-and-explore/metrics/built-in-metrics
