About metrics

What are host metrics?

Host metrics are metrics associated with the server such as CPU, memory, and load average.

Service metrics are metrics that are not associated with a particular host.

Mackerel's service metrics let you record and visualize any metric that isn't tied to a specific host. You can monitor the latency of an entire service, data for applications that aren't tied to a specific host, and even a day's sales and page views (PV). Service metrics let you monitor the growth and reliability of your service and can help you make decisions regarding.

What are standard hosts and micro hosts?

A standard host is any host installed with mackerel-agent or an instance of VM integration. A micro host is any pod, task, Amazon Web Service (AWS) other than VM integration, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud integration component with mackerel-container-agent registered as a sidecar.
