How long does it take for metrics to appear in the system?
In general, it will take about 30 seconds for a new metric to be available in the metric tree. During slower times this might take a couple of minutes, but we try to keep it to around 30 seconds.
The speed of new datapoints appearing for an existing metric will depend on the time scale of the graph you’re viewing.
For a short graph timescale (e.g. within the last 24 hours) the metric will become available within a few seconds - 15 seconds at the minimum. If you’re looking at a timespan greater than 24 hours, it will take up to 10 minutes simply because each data point on a graph of that scale is represented by a larger amount of time. One data point received in that time interval is not a valid representation of the actual data stream, so data is only displayed when there is a valid amount collected.
