What types of metric do we have

Number – a whole number (not a
fractional number)

Status – metric value is
represented by a true or false switch. For example: Is server online? Yes or No

Label – metric value is
expressed with text only

Counter – The value that can only be raised by adding one to the previous value.
You can use it, for instance, to count your daily active users.

Value in time – Number is saved along with date of each change. It’s perfect to track
trends. For instance you can track daily sales and figure out how to attract
clients on slower sales days.
