I want to set one of my alerts to evaluate a meric with a 6 minute resolution and averge the points within that window. Documentation states that this is possible when the metric is a rate and not a counter. If its a counter it only evaluates the last value in the time window. Since the output is from one of my Javascript collectors I'm guessing I can control this. What type should I set me output too?

kDefaultFrequency - is used as input to the frequency argument of the addMetric() helper function

kIntegerConstant - maps to the integer constant metric type

kIntegerFluctuatingCounter - maps to the integer fluctuating counter metric type

kLongConstant - maps to the long constant metric type

kLongFluctuatingCounter - maps to the long fluctuating counter metric type

kLongTimestamp - maps to the long timestamp metric type

kLongTimestampConstant - maps to the long timestamp constant metric type

kIntegerPercentage - maps to the integer percent metric type

kIntegerDuration - maps to the integer duration metric type

kLongDuration - maps to the long duration metric type \

kLongIntervalCounter - maps to the long interval counter metric type

kStringIndividualEvents - maps to the string metric type

Thanks for the help.

EPA Metric Type Name: IntRate

Definition: A 32 bit numeric value representing a per second counter. For a 15 second interval, the remainder (14 or less) will be truncated. When aggregated over multiple time periods, the weighted average is used as the aggregated Value.

Hope this helps...
