A metric instance is a record in the metric_instance table. A record holds one instance
of a metric.
Some of the notable fields in this table are:
- Metric definition: the metric definition for which this metric instance was
- Value: For a "Field value duration" metric this is the value of the table
field for which duration is calculated. For example, for the "Assigned to Duration" metric, the
Value is the name of the person assigned to the incident. For other metrics, the value can be
any value calculated by the metric.
- ID: Identifies the specific record for which the metric is gathered. For
example, the specific incident.
- Duration: Time duration for a Field value duration metric.
