I want to be able to tell what the current size of the late bucket is.
I believe "Late Collection" metric shows cumulative value, ie total late collections to date. In order to tell if the agent is falling behind one will have to examine a larger range of data to determine whether late collections are flattening out or trending upward.
Is this a catch-22? It may be hard to report that metric in a timely manner given that metric reporting is falling behind. To report on agent load may require something special-case, like additional information sent with the ping or something like that. Also, the agent log does, I believe, report when falling behind. It could be useful to know, though, that the agent is overloaded. But pushing out of 3.3 due to time and priority.
