The Network Utilization app provides insights into the network utilization of your resources over a specific time period. It generates aggregated metrics data for different network metrics over a period of time.

Configuration Parameters

  • Add Query: Use the query to select the entities that you wish to include in the report.
    • Default query: The default query (resourceTypePath CONTAINS “network device” AND state = “active” AND monitorable = “true”) will be populated by default when open network utilization app. User can able to modify/delete the default query and run his specific query.
    • Using an OpsQL query, you can customize the report result. If users did not select “state” and “monitorable” attributes in the query string, in that case the user selection query would be appended by default with “state” and “monitorable” attributes.
      For example: if a user only selects the agentInstalled attribute, the query will automatically append state = ‘active’ AND monitorable = true
      The query will look like as below:
      (agentInstalled = “true”) AND state = ‘active’ AND monitorable = true
