In observability and monitoring solutions, metrics can be collected for entities and health status for the entities can be evaluated based on certain rules. Health evaluation and reporting typically occurs on the same entities on which such metrics are collected/ingested. However, there are instances in which this approach may not suffice, such as instances in which metrics may need to be derived for parent entities based on child entities. Presented herein are techniques through which virtual entities can be dynamically introduced in order to derive metrics, health status, etc. for a parent entity based on child entity metrics.
