View Metrics

This topic explains how to view the metrics for NGINX instances.

This documentation applies to NGINX Instance Manager 2.0.0 and later.

To view metrics for an NGINX instance, take the following steps:

  1. Open the NGINX Instance Manager web interface and log in.
  2. Under Modules, select the Instance Manager.
  3. Select an instance on the Instances overview page.
  4. Select the Metrics tab.
Select a time range to change the period for the metrics. The metrics data refreshes every 30 seconds.

For NGINX OSS instances, you can view basic system metrics and metrics for the NGINX data plane. These provide a high-level overview of your system.
