I have a number of metrics that are an incrementing count of how many times an event has occurred.
I use the 'rate' function to graph how often the event has occurred per minute.
The problem is, when the server generating the metric is restarted, the count value is reset to 0. This causes a dislocation in my graph as the delta becomes negative.
Other metrics systems I have used have a mechanism to smooth out these dislocations in their rate function. Is there something like that available in Sumo?
