Simple (perhaps too simple) hack to cut down number of stats that we weren’t using.

Why are you sending the stats to StatsD in the first place? Or is this for built-in stats? In that case a configuration flag to just turn them off might be better?

y0ns0n commented Mar 21, 2013

We only need the upper metric from the timer stats. If there is a way to set this currently that I am completely missing then my bad.

I could change it to three flags for mean, upper and sum and will continue to just filter them on the graphite backend.

There is no way to do this right now. However the question if it is possible to restrict the number of default metrics sent has come up quite a bit. So I think we should try to come up with a good solution for this, especially since timers are potentially calculating a lot more metrics now. @draco2003 thoughts about how to make this configurable?
