High cardinality metric tags can severly disrupt downstream metrics storages. To
protect against this we built a new
Getting started is easy. Simply add this component to your pipeline:
[transforms.tag_protection]type = "tag_cardinality_limit"inputs = ["my-source-id"]limit_exceeded_action = "drop_tag"mode = "exact"value_limit = 500
limit_exceeded_actiondescribed the behavior when the
modeenables you to switch between
probabilisticalgorithms to trade performance for memory efficiency.
valuelimit allows you to select exactly how many unique tag values you're willing to accept.
More to come! This feature is part of our best-in-class operator UX initiative.
