Defining ratio metrics

To define a ratio metric, you must select the Metric Definition tab and click the New metric button. A menu appears asking you the kind of metric you want to define. Select Ratio metric. Once done, you can perform the following steps:

  1. Enter a name for the metric in the "Name" field. Next to the field you will see the type of metric as well as the unit for this metric.
  2. Enter a description for the metric. The description is shown as a tooltip when you navigate the list of available metrics.
  3. Select a metric for numerator in the "Metric" combo box of the "Numerator" frame to change the numerator in the "Ratio" field.
  4. Select a metric for denominator in the "Metric" combo box of the "Denominator" frame to change the denominator in the "Ratio" field.
  5. If you want to change again either numerator or denominator repeat operations 3. or 4. as many times as needed.
  6. Once you have completed the metric definition you need to save your metric by clicking on the Save button.
  7. If you want to define another ratio metric, repeat all the previous steps.

A summary of the metric you just defined appears in a textual representation in the Expression text field.
