This does not describe in detail the metrics under the JVM and Database branches of the gateway metric tree

 

Environment

Release : 3.4

Component : Integration with APM

Resolution

The database metrics are derived directly from the output of mysql -e "SHOW STATUS" command and so the meanings correspond with what that command reports. These are documented here for version Mysql 5.7 - check the doc for which ever mysql release in use Below is the link for version 5.7 which is what is shipped with the standard Gateway Appliance
