This widget displays on the Cloud Instance/VM Details page and includes storage data for the cloud instance/VM, not the volume. Some cloud instances/VM may have a local disk, or native storage, as physical disks attached to the instance/VM. For example, AWS instances may include an option for attached SSD drives.

If a cloud instance/VM has no attached local disks, the widget may display 0 across all metrics.

This widget displays storage IOPS performance data as line graphs for a cloud instance/VM. Hover over the line graphs to view data for read and write for IOPS and throughput. If data triggers warning or critical status, each line and value is highlighted in a corresponding color per status.

All metric data polls from cloud service APIs. This data differs from OS metrics.

The title and contents of cloud-based widgets depend on whether an AWS instance or Azure VM is selected.
