cloudProvider.instance.type

The type of instance (for example, AWS or Rackspace).

This metric is extremely useful to segment instances and compare their resource usage and saturation. You can use it as a grouping criteria for the explore table to quickly explore AWS usage on a per-instance-type basis. You can also use it to compare things like CPU usage, number of requests or network utilization for different instance types.

Use this grouping criteria in conjunction with the host.count metric to easily create a report on how many instances of each type you have.
