Hey Team, how can we get record the metrics apart from hostmetrics from the services? I am using python service and looking for an alternative to
datadog.api.Metric.send

@Himanshu Jain Can you share more details on what type of metrics are you looking to plot
h
They are going to be timeseries metrics of a custom events
That can be accessible while creating panels

I tried adding the events instead, let me use the above docs. thanks

Span events? You will still be able to plot the panels using those events (I can share an example query if you are interested), but metrics might be the right solution for what you are trying to achieve.

yes
we do some events tracked already, so we can use that example query
