  • Load 5: System average load over the last 5 minutes.
  • QPS: Queries per second.

  • Num Opened Sessions: Number of active sessions.
  • Add Edge Latency & Add Vertex Latency: Delay time for adding edges and vertices.

Clicking the watch button on the upper right corner of each panel can filter the time and view each monitoring metric on a separate subpage.
