This check generates services based upon the configured information which includes the service description and a pair of metric name and PromQl query. Multiple such pairs can be defined to belong to one service. The metric name should be selected with respect to an expected Performance Graph visualisation. A successful PromQL query results in the inclusion of the queried value in the respective service. Further details are displayed for the user in case the PromQL query was invalid or faulty.
