    +Metrics
    +-------------------
    +
    +Flink exposes a metric system that allows users gather and expose metrics to external
systems.
    +
    +### Registering metrics
    +
    +You can access the metric system from any user function that extends [RichFunction]({{
site.baseurl }}/apis/common/index.html#rich-functions) by calling getRuntimeContext().getMetricGroup().
    +This method returns a MetricGroup object on which you can create and register new metrics.
    +
    +If you want to count the number of records your user function has received you could
use a Counter like this:
    +
    +{% highlight java %}
    +
    +public class MyMapper extends RichMapFunction<String, Integer> {
    +  private Counter counter;
    +
    +  @Override
    +  public void open(Configuration config) {
    +    // create and register a counter
    +    this.counter = getRuntimeContext().getMetricGroup().counter("myCounter");
    +    ...
    +  }
    +
    +  @public Integer map(String value) throws Exception {
    +    // increment counter
    +    this.counter.inc();
    +    ...
    +  }
    +}
    +
    +{% endhighlight %}

    Maybe we should also demonstrate how to register a custom metric.
