Configuring Singlestats in a Custom Dashboard

Anypoint Monitoring custom dashboards provide a way for you to configure singlestat charts for a single measure (such as a response time or heap usage) of your Mule app environment over a given time range.

General Settings for Basic and Advanced Data Queries

General settings include basic and advanced queries (or modes) for configuring time-series data. Both configurations share fields for the title and a short description.

Example: Basic Configuration
Basic and Advanced Mode Settings

Title

Title to display in the UI. Defaults to Panel Title.

Description

Short description to display in the UI when users hover over the information (i) icon.

Other settings are specific to the setting mode (basic or advanced).

Basic Mode

In the General configuration tab, a basic query selects a single metric for a resource (a deployed application or API) in a given environment.

Example: Basic Configuration
Basic Mode Settings

Panel Type

From the drop-down menu, select the type of panel to display for the resource — Application Panel or API Panel.

Metric

The drop-down menu includes these types of metrics:

  • Inbound response metrics and averages

  • JVM metrics

  • Outbound response metrics and averages

For a list of basic metrics, see Basic Mode Metrics

Environment

The environment where your application or API is deployed.

Resource

A deployed application or API.

After you complete your configuration, click Save Changes.

To exit the configuration and return to the dashboard, click the X.

Advanced Mode

In the General configuration tab, advanced settings support one or more fine-tuned queries for your chart.

If you switch back to the basic configuration, some of the advanced configuration queries are removed.
Example: Advanced  Configuration
Advanced Mode Settings for Applications

From

Lists JVM and Mule app properties (such as jvm.memory and app_inbound_metric) that you can add to your chart.

This field provides matching suggestions when you type in a character. For example, jvm.c will produce a list of all values that contain those characters (such as jvm.classloading and jvm.cpu.operatingsystem).

For a list of advanced metrics, see Advanced Mode Metrics

Where

Supports conditional logic for filtering the From data source you selected.

  • Select one or more filters tags (such as app_id, env_id, org_id, worker_id).

  • Available operators include:

    • = The value on the left matches the value on the right.

    • != The value is not equal to.

    • <> The value is not equal to.

    • < The value on the left is less than the value on the right.

    • > The value on the left is greater than the value on the right.

    • =∼ Matches against the value in a regular expression, using WHERE.

    • !∼ Does not match against the value in a regular expression.

  • You can also construct a query that contains multiple filtering expressions by using logical AND or OR operators between the expressions.
    Example: Where env_id = Sandbox

Select

Add one or more field settings to create a function that selects a field from the From data and applies an operation to it (such as the mean of the heap_total).

Select Options

Group By

For grouping the data by a selected time interval (such as $_interval, 1s, 10m, 1h), filter tag (such as tag(env_id)), and fill options (such as none, null, 0, previous, linear).

Valid values and arguments:

  • time($_interval) for the automated time interval setting, or you can specify time intervals of 1m, 5m, 10m, 15m, or 1h.

  • fill() where valid values are none, null, 0, previous, linear.

  • LIMIT: Numeric value (N) used to limit the result to the first N data points (combined series and timestamp values) returned by a query.

  • SLIMIT: Numeric value (N) used to return the all data points (combined series and timestamp values) from the first N series returned by the query.

  • ORDER BY time DESC: Returns results in descending time order.

Alias By

You can create a label for your metric using a literal string (such as my string) or supported variables (for example, $tag_worker_id or $tag_env_id).

Advanced Mode Settings for APIs

From

http_summary_metric

For a list of advanced metrics, see Advanced Mode Metrics

Where

Provides conditional logic for filtering the From data source you selected.

You can select one or more filter tags (such as api_id, org_id, api_version_id, method, status code). Example: Where status_code = 200.

Select

For creating a function that selects a field (such as request_size_average,response_time_max, or response_time_sum) from the HTTP summary and applies an operation to it (such as the mean of the response_time_average). You can add one or more field settings.

Group by

For grouping the data by a selected time interval (such as $_interval, 1s, 10m, 1h), filter tag (such as tag(api_id)), and fill options (such as none, null, 0, previous, linear).

Alias by

You can create a label for your metric using a literal string (such as my string) or supported variables (for example, $tag_api_id). The alias must always begin with $tag. The syntax is $tag_yourTagName.

To use your tag as an alias, the tag must be used to group by in the query.

After you complete your configuration, click Save Changes.

To exit the configuration and return to the dashboard, click the X.

Time Range (Overrides, Time Shifts, Info Display)

Time range configurations provide a way to override relative time ranges (such as the last 30 minutes) selected from the dashboard UI by end users.

Time Range
Time Range Settings

Override Relative Time

The amount of time covered by the statistic, for example, the last hour (1h) or last thirty minutes (30m). Note that this setting only overrides relative time ranges selected by end users from the dashboard UI. When these users select an absolute time and date range for the dashboard, the configuration for the time range override will be disabled.

Add Time Shift

How long ago the covered time period ended, for example, 1s for one second ago.

Hide Time Override Info

Indicates whether the singlestat or table will display information about its settings, such as 30 minutes, ending 1 second ago.

After you complete your configuration, you can click Save Changes. To exit the configuration and return to the dashboard, simply click the X.

Options Tab

The Options tab includes settings for singlestat values, fonts, coloring, spark lines, and gauge icon settings.

Value Settings for Singlestats

Configure values for your singlestat. Value settings include the type of value you want (such as an average), the unit of measure, and others.

Example: Singlestat Options
Values

Stat
