High partition size - check Metadata-Coordination service in System Management UI


Very high partition size - check Metadata-Coordination service in System Management UI

  2. If the Health column contains a state other than Healthy, click Repair.
For more information about reducing the partition size, see the description for the Partition Size Health panel in Services Health dashboard.

Chart and graph legends

The charts and graphs shown in dashboards can be visually complex and include multiple metrics. By default, all metrics that are monitored for a chart or graph are shown.

You can tailor the metrics that are shown by using the chart or graph legend. If a metric is not selected in the legend, the chart or graph will not reflect that metric. To view a metric in a chart or graph, click the metric in the legend. To remove a metric, click the metric again. You can use the Ctrl button to select multiple metrics at once.
