ColdFusion Metrics

ColdFusion Metrics are only available for certain ColdFusion versions and under certain server configurations. For more information, see the ColdFusion Plugin section.

The ColdFusion Metrics page is used to display various details specifically for ColdFusion servers. A lot of this information is retrieved from the ColdFusion built-in Profiler. This helps to understand the true state of your server traffic.


There are 6 graphs on the ColdFusion Metrics page. All graphs apart from the Hits Graph have three series:

  • Running: Any currently active requests at the given point in time.
  • Queued: Any requests currently queued for processing.
  • Timed Out: Any requests that took too long and therefore were timed out.

These are described below:

Graph Name Description
