Handling of large amounts of sources

When you send a metric to our service we generally try to graph it with every source. This approach works well at small numbers of sources, but breaks down when you have very many (e.g. 100+) sources reporting the same metric.

To make viewing metrics with many sources more manageable when looking at the metric detail screen, we only show you the first 25 sources but tell you that these are 25 of … however many sources you have.


You can page through the sources or use the filter to narrow down your search. This filter is applied as an exact match on source names, so please use the wildcard character to match multiple sources e.g. *prod* to match all source names that include “prod”.
