C.0 The Metrics Facility

The Orchestrate Metrics Facility collects, aggregates, and allows simple fact-based retrieval of metric values by jobs and computed facts (via JDL), policy constraints, and Event triggers on a per-resource basis. This provides aggregated metrics generated by gmond without the need for the gmetad Ganglia service. Note that gmetad can still be used in parallel for aggregating gmond reported metrics for visualization purposes.
