The easiest way to learn how to construct the metric path and time range-related parameters is by using the Controller UI. When you right-click on the metric in the Metric Browser, a menu option appears for copying the full REST URL for the metric. The copied URL includes the path to this metric and time range selected in the UI.  

To test the path, paste the result directly into the URL field of a browser in which an authenticated session to the Controller UI is active.

Certain clients, such as most web browser, can also accept and properly encode the full path value as the metric path parameter. You can see the full path by hovering over the metric in the tree or copy it using the Copy Full Path option in the right-click menu. For reading clarity, certain examples below are shown with the full path value rather than the fully encoded URL value. If you test calls with the full path yourself, be sure to avoid having a pipe character appear at the start or end of the path.
