suggest edits

Gauge is an object for representing a custom metric holding only the latest value added. It is one of the four custom metrics.

Parameter Type Description
name string The name of the custom metric.
isTime boolean A boolean indicating whether the values added to the metric are time values or just untyped values.
Method Description
Gauge.add(value, [tags]) Add a value to the gauge metric. Only the latest value added will be kept.

Gauge usage in Thresholds

When gauge is used in a threshold expression, the variable must be called value (lower case). For example:

  • value < 200
  • value > 1


import { Gauge } from 'k6/metrics';

var myGauge = new Gauge('my_gauge');

export default function () {
  myGauge.add(2, { tag1: 'value', tag2: 'value2' });
import http from 'k6/http';
import { sleep } from 'k6';
import { Gauge } from 'k6/metrics';

let GaugeContentSize = new Gauge('ContentSize');

export let options = {
  thresholds: {
    ContentSize: ['value<4000'],

export default function () {
  let res = http.get('');
