I have not tested any of this code, but something like this needs to be merged and deployed ASAP so that we can move off the obsolete heroku l2met endpoint.
stop using obsolete l2met format
@archaelus thinking of any splunk usage we have that might depend on this format, or any other tool in fact? The fix itself seems safe to merge other than the potential risk of breaking tools that depended on the obsolete l2met format and would be merge-ready otherwise, I think.
Nope - this doesn't bother me in the slightest unless it crashes :) +1
Tested it locally and all tests keep passing, builds fine.
