How to add filters on Real-Time Metrics

Adding filters

Real-Time Metrics shows you a standard view of data related to all your applications, but, by using filters, you can adjust the graphs to match your requests. This way, you can view more specific data that fit your analysis.

When you add a filter, you can set the Field, such as “Host”, “Status”, or “Scheme”, and the Operator, such as “Like”, “Range”, or “Not equal”.

You can find more details about each field on the Fields Metrics documentation and about operators on the Queries documentation.

You can also set the value field that’ll be used. Depending on the variable you chose, it can accept values of the String, Int, or Float types.

Practical example

You want to filter your data by the amount of saved data, but, in the request, you want to set a specific value as a starting point to the data that’ll be returned.

In this situation, you should use Saved Data and Greater than or equal. In the value field, you should add the number value that you want as a cutoff, such as “8300”. Then, your response will contain only amounts of saved data that start from and are greater than the specific value you set.

How can I edit or delete a filter?

After you add filters, each one shows on the FILTERS section.

If you want to edit an existing filter, click on the text of the specific filter. Once the Edit Filter popover opens, you can change the filter’s settings as you wish.

If you want to delete an existing filter, click the x icon next to the specific filter. Repeat the action for each filter you want to delete.
