On the Home view dashboard, the Metrics tab provides an overview of the resources an enterprise is using on the platform.

To jump straight to a resource, click on the resource name in a table. To display more details of an event, click on the event in the table.

For the user, the Metrics tab displays the metrics for the enterprise's virtual datacenters without the Enterprises list or the enterprise statistics.
