Wayback metrics provide important insights into the performance and status of the Wayback service. These metrics include memory usage, which helps track the amount of memory used by the service; request status, which helps identify the status of incoming requests and whether they are being successfully handled; publish status, which helps track the status of published web pages; and garbage collection, which helps track the removal of unused web pages to free up memory. By monitoring these metrics, users can gain a better understanding of the overall health of the Wayback service and identify any issues that may need to be addressed.

In each wayback service, the command /metrics can be used to obtain metrics.
