To create more complex conditions based on mathematical operations, it is possible to use the formula editor.

Formulas input

To use formulas it is essential to:

  1. Switch to the manual input mode .

  2. Enter the metric name in the Data source field or select it in the filtered list of options. The name of each metric must be written in braces as follow: {{metric_name}}.

  3. Input the formula using mathematical symbols, constants, and braces.

    For example, the difference between the maximal round-trip time and of minimal round-trip time:
    {{roundTripMaximum}} - {{roundTripMinimal}}.

    The result of calculations will automatically be displayed over the entered mathematical operation.

Function        Description
random(n)Get a random number in the range [0, n). If n is equal to zero, or not provided, it defaults to 1.
min(a,b,…)Get the smallest (minimum) number in the list.
max(a,b,…)Get the largest (maximum) number in the list.
hypot(a,b) or
pyt(a, b)
Hypotenuse, i.e. the square root of the sum of squares of its arguments (sqrt(a^2+b^2)).
pow(x, y)Equivalent of exponentiation x^y.
atan2(y, x)Arc tangent of x/y. i.e. the angle between (0, 0) and (x, y) in radians.
if(x, y, z)Equivalent of the ternary conditional (if x then y else z).
