Metric IDs for Idle and Network Time

Hello,

I need to create a custom metric that is the sum of Idle Time + Network Time metrics.

I have created a new "dmi_dataview-*" file adding the following lines:

CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.id=TEST_CustomMetric1
CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.name=MyAwesomeMetricName
CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.description=My awesome metric description

CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.resultType=DOUBLE
CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.expression= [IDLEID]+[NETWORKID]
CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.renderer=DOUBLE
CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.resolutions=r,1,6,d,w,m
CVENT.ClientView.calculatedColumn.0.group=MyAwesomeMetricGroup

My question is: what are the IDs of Idle and Network time? On this page:

https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/...

it seems that the Network Time id is "tierNetworkTime". Is it correct? And what about the Idle Network time? I cannot find any information about that!

Thank you so much,

Hi Davide,

in the DMI Report definition, by clicking on the Help (or ? depending on the version) you can find the full list of metrics and dimensions for the current data view with the related IDs, as you can see in the screenshots below:

In the list you can see the description and the ID.

In your case the needed IDs are:

- IdleTime

- netDelay

Please remember that every ID in the custom metric definition should be reported as you see it: it's case sensitive.

Hope it helps.

For any further needs, please call me 🙂

Ciao, Raffaele

You can find it in DMI's help.

Take a look at this forum thread.

Another option I like to use, is if you're looking at a report with the fields you want in it, you can export it to a CSV, and all the details are in the header info.
