Proposed videobridge stats removal

We’re planning to remove several statistics from the Jitsi Videobridge 2.x statistics API: cpu_usage, used_memory, and total_memory.

These are system-level statistics which can generally be provided by system-level monitoring services. (In our case, we use DataDog, which does indeed provide all these statistics.). In our experience the system-level monitoring provides finer resolution on the statistics, as well.

If anyone has a reason why we should not remove these, please let us know why you need them?

Thanks!

To add to Jnathan’s post, using statsd would also provide that information and much more.
