May be dumb question. Can someone help me understand how to drop a measurement that is of metric type gauge and the config to reset gauge is set as false?
We want this reset gauge to be set to false as we would like to use the last value as the value to measure something.
With this approach, when gauge delta is sent, we are able to get the desired value when sent from Python. We have the following questions.
- How do we drop the measurement? When we try, it is dropped, but the last known value is written again making it a ever lasting measurement.
- How can we stop it from printing the last known value for every interval, even when no metrics is sent?
Thanks in advance.
