We refer time series data as Metrics. Currently, we support users to submit two types of metric data.
Counter represents the cumulative value at a given time, each data point reported is a delta value (add or subtract) to the last value. Usually used to record e.g the accumulated number of tokens transferred.

Gauge represents a sampled value at a given time, each data point reported is the current value. Usually used to record e.g. balance or total Supply. To see a complete example about how to use it, start from Monitor totalSupply of cbETH (via Interval)
It is possible to have multiple series in one metric (i.e. Counter or Gauge). Any label combination generate a different series (see Labels). For example, if you have a metric which uses a token symbol as label. You'd generate multiple series in the dashboard by default. For example:
