SDWAN metric type provides the metrics, properties, and tags to represent the performance of SDWAN physical and virtual entities.

The VMware Telco Cloud Operations VeloCloud and Viptela collectors constructs this metric type with SDWAN performance metrics for controllers, edges, underlay and overlay entities. In he VMware Telco Cloud Operations out-of-the box reports, this metric type is used to show the summary of SDWAN performance trends per device and per SDWAN entities. Leverage this metric type to create custom reports to represent SDWAN performance using other Grafana widgets or new filters. Similarly, custom collectors can construct the metric type for the different vendor and create custom reports.
