Get started with the metric dictionary

The metric dictionary contains information about metrics that enhances the usability of series graphs and Zenoss Cloud looks for that information whenever it constructs a graph. The dictionary includes entries for hundreds of metrics, so you may not have to do anything to enjoy its benefits.

However, you may have custom data sources or metric information that is not included in the dictionary, or you may wish to customize a metric's default information. Any user can edit a metric dictionary entry on a dashboard or Smart View page, and users with the Manager role can add and manage entries on the dictionary administration page.
