Metrics are only as valuable as how they are used. At Roblox we use metrics to help inform decisions everyday. With busy sites with thousands of backends the HAProxy Prometheus endpoint produces an insane amount of metrics, so we have had to come up with interesting ways to capture relevant data to show the need to process that much information. During the talk we will discuss some of the methods and implementations of data processing and analysis and share some tips so you can prove the value of MORE metrics.
