I remember that. Would be cool to have this stuff.

>> A better option may be to add an MetricsSPI where the default provider
>> would get the details from Keycloak itself. Useful details could be:
>> * Number of active sessions - we can get this from counting number of open
>> sessions (not sure if that will be a costly query to do as user sessions
>> are stored in a distributed cache)
>> * Number of failed logins - we can get this from events storage when
>> enabled and it can be made configurable to only consider events for the
>> last X days
>> * Number of logins - same as above
>> We could add a new endpoint /realms/<realm-name>/metrics/<provider>. That
>> would allow adding whatever provider for the format you want (i.e.
>> prometheus). I don't think this info should be available publicly though
>> it has to be protected somehow.
>> I'm also not to keen on using io.prometheus.client library for this if
>> can be avoided. We don't like having to maintain additional libraries and
>> prefer to use things that are already available in EAP/WilldFly.
