Metric explorer: Search and chart metric timeslice data


As of April 12, 2021, we are upgrading Insights to an improved web and mobile experience! All of your Insights URLs will be redirected automatically to the corresponding dashboards in New Relic One. For more details about this migration and how you can easily plan for this transition, see our Explorers Hub post.

  • Events
  • Metrics

You can also query metric timeslice using NRQL, which gives you more power and flexibility when querying this data.

  2. Browse the top metrics or search for a specific metric name.
  3. View metric charts as you select them.
  4. Configure the chart options.
  5. Optional: To load the API Explorer (preset to the selected metric and time range), select Explore API.
  6. To add individual charts to a dashboard, select Add to dashboard.
  7. Give each chart a meaningful title to identify it on the target dashboard.
