    Go to the Create Dashboard page
  2. Replace Untitled Dashboard with an appropriate name.
  3. Click Add chart.
  4. In the Find resource type and metric field, add Cloud Router as a resource and then a Cloud Router metric.

  8. Click Save to add the chart to your dashboard.

Some metrics are for the Cloud Router and some metrics are for a BGP session on a given Cloud Router. Cloud Router metrics are shown by router-name while BGP sessions metrics are shown as router-name(bgp-name).
