On the Home view dashboard, the Metrics tab provides an overview of the resources an enterprise is using on the platform. By default the platform displays the metrics for the current enterprise. To display metrics for another enterprise, select the enterprise or switch to it.
This panel shows statistics of the resources used by an enterprise in all accessible datacenters, or the selected virtual datacenter. It also displays soft limits and hard limits when used. The display will depend on the user's scope and privileges. If the user does not have the privileges to display enterprise statistics and limits, only the virtual datacenter statistics will be available.
By default, the statistics are updated at the interval set with the "Refresh interval for dashboard" parameter at Configuration View#Dashboard.
