Canonical metric namesEffective Date: June, 2020Announcement Date: April, 2020OpsRamp is migrating its metric naming convention. This change will bring greater visibility into the service being monitored and provide a consistent model for referencing metrics. Although this change is currently limited to AWS and GCP resources, OpsRamp will iterate on all metrics over time to get them into the same model.For example:Old metric convention: aws.write.throughputNew metric convention: aws_redshift_WriteThroughputBehavior changes to be awareFor metrics that are common across multiple resources, the metrics will be separated using the new notation and placing the metrics in their respective cloud templates.Graphing impactFor resources where the existing metric is updated to the new convention, metric data will continue to plot.For resources where a new metric is added, the old graph will have the wrong metric name with the metric collection stopping for the old metric. The new metric graph will populate with the updating metric name convention.Alert impactAny existing alert based on an old metric will persist. However, heals/critical alerts will not be processed after the change. Alerts with old metric notation will not be updated and not updated with new metric notation.
