Operational scans on Office 365

The following metrics are availabe for Microsoft Office 365 instances:

Times and time zones

From a temporal dimension point of view, there are two kinds of operational metrics.

  1. Metrics which represent the state of a given value at a point in time (for instance, the number of active users)
  2. Metrics which represent the aggregate value of a given metric for a defined time interval (typically, one day - for instance, number of logins in a day)

Metrics in the first group are captured with a T + 0 time resolution. That is, metric values for day T will be available on that same day (which will typically be the day on which the operational scan is executed). If two operational scans are executed on the same day, the value for these metrics may change, with the latest value overriding the previous one.

Metrics in the second group are captured with a T+1 time resolution. That is, metric values for day T will be available on T+1. If two operational scans are executed on the same day, the value for these metrics will not change.

Dates always refer to the time zone configured in the ServiceNow instance. Note that if there is no time zone configured in the instance (by setting the propery glide.sys.default.tz), then the dates refer to UTC time, which is how ServiceNow stores timestamp values internally (see this link for details).
