This page contains all Performance Analyzer metrics. All metrics support the
max aggregations, although certain metrics measure only one thing, making the choice of aggregation irrelevant.
For information on dimensions, see the dimensions reference.
This list is extensive. We recommend using Ctrl/Cmd + F to find what you’re looking for.
