Subject: Re: OpenShift: Metric table out of sync issue and heapster
That check is there because it greatly reduces the load on the
Hawkular-Metrics in an existing environment. Otherwise, after the
restart, the first time the metrics are sent it is going to make a huge
amount of writes to HWKMETRICS and this will take time (the operations
are slower than datapoint writes after all).
The majority (if not all) metrics in Hawkular Metrics right now come from Heapster, if
things are working properly then they should essentially all have that
I'll make the change next week to allows deciding the behavior
command line parameter (in case we fix it in the metrics some other way
also - or this wasn't the real root cause for some reason).
I am fine with a command line parameter if we think this is the right way to go. As long
as we provide some sort of mechanism to allow for users to resolve this issue.
