This API uses the following terms.
|filter||To create and validate a metric filter, use the Search field in the Metrics page. You can then copy and paste the filter into your request.|
|fully_qualified_moob||The full name of the managed object associated with a metric.
You can view the fully_qualified_moob at the top of a metric chart.
|key||An optional metric field that provides additional information. For example, the metric name might be "disk\_used" and the key might be "eth0."
You can view the key at the top of a metric chart.
|namespace||The namespace associated with a metric. This is the first element in the fully_qualified_moob: `namespace:managed_object:archive`.|
|query||A database query to filter by collector(s)|
|start||The index of the first item to return from a set of query results. Thus a value of 50 will return the 50th object in the output onward.|
|uuid||The universally-unique ID of a collector. The UUID is in the format `namespace:managed-object:archive`.
You can view the UUID in the UI page for the collector.
|version||The SDK version of the mar. To determine the version, navigate to the following folder on the collector host: `collector-home/collector/sheds/collector-instance-name/mars/namespace/mar-name/sdk-version-number`|
