The All Metrics tab provides a relationship map and user-defined metric charts. The topological map helps you evaluate objects in the context of their place in your environment topology. The metric charts are based on the metrics for the selected object that you think will help you identify the possible cause of a problem in your environment.
Although you might be investigating problems with a single object, for example, a host system, the relationship map allows you to see the host in the context of parent and child objects. It is also works as a hierarchical navigation system. If you double-click an object in the map, that object becomes the focus of the map and the available metrics for the object are active in the lower-left pane.
You can also build your own set of metric charts. You select the objects and metrics so that you can get a more detailed view of changes to different metrics for a single object, or for related objects over time.
Where available, the tab also provides pre-defined sets of metric to help you when looking at a specific aspect of an object. The metrics are organized into the most relevant groups for the selected object, and provide the most relevant metrics. For example, for a host, the metrics are displayed under CPU, Memory, Network, and Storage.
