Step 2: Add KPI

Once a data source is successfully added, you can start defining KPIs using that data source. On pressing the "Add a KPI" button you will be required to fill in the following details:

  • KPI Name : Name of your KPI

  • Data Source : Data source you will be using to define the KPI

  • Data Set Type

    • Table: If the KPI is directly related to an existing Table, select 'Table' as an option.

    • Query: If the KPI definition requires using multiple tables, then 'Query' option can be used to define the query.

  • Schema: If you select your Data Set Type as 'Table', then an additional option to choose the schema in which your table belongs is to be selected.

  • Metric Column: Select the column corresponding to the KPI

  • Aggregate by: You can select the operation you want to perform on the Metric Column to define the KPI - Sum, Average or Count

  • Datetime Column: Select the date column which will be used by Chaos Genius for the time-series analysis

  • Dimensions: You can select upto 10 dimensions. These are the Dimensions across which the defined KPI will be monitored for analysis like DeepDrills and Anomaly Detection.
