I am creating an API that will expose a list of metrics data. Each metric data will contain the following:
metricName lowerThreshold upperThreshold
The defined thresholds here are what will determine whether the current value of the metric is good or bad.
The behavior of the application will be based on how the current value of the metric compares to the bounds
If metric is lower than upperThreshold ->
If metric is lower than lowerThreshold ->
lower will not always hold true. There are metrics where the objective is to minimize a number, in which case the
upperThreshold will be lower than the
If metric is higher than upperThreshold ->
If metric is higher than lowerThreshold ->
What would be the right way to name these bounds such that there is no confusion regarding which one is the better metric without inferring anything about the relationship between the 2 bounds?
