Description of problem:
In 4.4 a new mechanism to configure telemetry was introduced, this silently dropped the comments that described what each metric represents. These descriptions should be available for transparency.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
tested with 4.4.0-0.nightly-2020-02-03-163409, just some defects in the comments.
the following 3 metrics are not the same with that in the comments
# job:ceph_pools_iops:total is the total iops (reads+writes) value in bytes for all the pools in ceph cluster
# cluster:network_attachment_definition_enabled_instance_up informs (1 or 0) if the cluster has
# at least max of one instance with k8s.v1.cni.cncf.io/networks annotation, labelled by networks (any or sriov).
# insightsclient_request_send tracks the number of metrics sends.
This sounds like the problem with the metrics as we did not touch any of the recording rules, think we should verify to confirm this before these changes landed.
I double checked and while not totally correct as you identified, those are the comments those entries had previously, see: https://github.com/openshift/telemeter/blob/de3c19e9675f55b22e53104094926c584c5a8a60/docs/data-collection.md
As this bug was about transferring the comments, I would call this verified, and we can open a bug against each component that is responsible for these metrics, to have them fix the comments.
