Subject Re: How can OpsCenter show me Read Request Latency where there are no read requests??
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 18:16:09 GMT
Hmm, that's sense but then why is the latency for the reads that get the
metric often so high (several thousand uSecs) and why does it so closely
track the latency of my normal reads?
