These metrics are automatically collected by DC/OS.



Metric Description
cpu.cores Percentage of cores used.
cpu.idle Percentage of CPUs idle.
cpu.system Percentage of system used.
cpu.total Percentage of CPUs used.
cpu.user Percentage of CPU used by the user.
cpu.wait Percentage idle while waiting for an operation to complete.
load.1min Load average for the past minute.
load.5min Load average for the past 5 minutes.
load.15min Load average for the past 15 minutes.
memory.buffers Number of memory buffers.
memory.cached Amount of cached memory.
memory.free Amount of free memory in bytes.
memory.total Total memory in bytes.
processes Number of processes that are running.
swap.free Amount of free swap space.
swap.total Total swap space.
swap.used Amount of swap space used.
uptime The system reliability and load average.


Metric Description
filesystem.{{.Name}}.capacity.free Amount of available capacity in bytes.
filesystem.{{.Name}}.capacity.total Total capacity in bytes.
filesystem.{{.Name}}.capacity.used Capacity used in bytes.
filesystem.{{.Name}}.inodes.free Amount of available inodes in bytes.
filesystem.{{.Name}}.inodes.total Total inodes in bytes.
filesystem.{{.Name}}.inodes.used Inodes used in bytes.

Note: {{.Name}} is part of a go template and is automatically populated based on the mount path of the local filesystem (e.g., /, /boot, etc).

Network interfaces

Metric Description
network.{{.Name}}.in.bytes Number of bytes downloaded.
network.{{.Name}}.in.dropped Number of downloaded bytes dropped.
network.{{.Name}}.in.errors Number of downloaded bytes in error.
network.{{.Name}}.in.packets Number of packets downloaded.
network.{{.Name}}.out.bytes Number of bytes uploaded.
network.{{.Name}}.out.dropped Number of uploaded bytes dropped.
network.{{.Name}}.out.errors Number of uploaded bytes in error.
network.{{.Name}}.out.packets Number of packets uploaded.

Note: {{.Name}} is part of a go template and is automatically populated based on the mount path of the local filesystem (e.g., /, /boot, etc).


The following per-container resource utilization metrics are collected.

CPU usage info

Metric Description
cpus_limit The number of CPU shares allocated.
cpus_system_time_secs Total CPU time spent in kernel mode in seconds.
cpus_throttled_time_secs Total time, in seconds, that CPU was throttled.
cpus_user_time_secs Total CPU time spent in user mode.

Disk info

Metric Description
disk_limit_bytes Hard capacity limit for disk in bytes.
disk_used_bytes Hard capacity used in bytes.

Memory info

Metric Description
mem_limit_bytes Hard memory limit for a container.
mem_total_bytes Total memory of a process in RAM (as opposed to in Swap).


Dimensions are metadata about the metrics that are contained in a common message format and are broadcast to one or more metrics producers.

Metric Description
net_rx_bytes Bytes received.
net_rx_dropped Packets dropped on receive.
net_rx_errors Errors reported on receive.
net_rx_packets Packets received.
net_tx_bytes Bytes sent.
net_tx_dropped Packets dropped on send
net_tx_errors Errors reported on send.
net_tx_packets Packets sent.
