There are much more metrics than the one listed on that page that are
exported, either via carbon (for metronome), prometheus or the REST API.
But a lot of metrics, including QPS, are per-frontend and per-backend.
They do show up in metronome directly. If you use another tool to
process the metrics, I'd suggest you look more closely at the values you
are receiving.

As for the CPU usage, it's listed right there on the page you link to,
as "cpu-sys-msec" and "cpu-user-msec".
