You can verify that a metric is being collected and used for reporting when you search and find the metric in the database.


  1. Go to the Administration page.
  2. Under Modules, click Management of Database Modules.
  3. On the Metric Selection page, create the filter.
    For example, to list the key_reads (the number of physical reads of a key block from disk to the MyISAM cache), type source=='MySQL-Collector' &&name=='key_reads' in the Filter field.
  4. Click Query.
    A list of the metric results appears. If nothing displays, the metric is not being collected.
