Grafana Cloud

Check metrics

The Synthetic Monitoring checks generate metrics that you can use to build custom dashboards or alerts.

You can use Grafana Explore to play around with these metrics.

For a complete list of metrics collected by checks, refer to the Synthetic Monitoring Agent GitHub repository.

Pre-built dashboards

Synthetic Monitoring automatically creates a dashboard for every check you create.

Dashboard template updates are released with the Synthetic Monitoring plugin and can be applied in the Synthetic Monitoring plugin Config section.

NOTE: If you have made any changes to the pre-built dashboards that come with every check, your changes will be overwritten when the app is updated. If you would like to make changes to these pre-built dashboards, make a copy of the dashboard and make your changes to the copy.
