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?


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