Manage Metric Scale

Sysdig provides several knobs for managing metric scale.

There are three primary ways in which you could include/exclude metrics, should you encounter unwanted metrics limits.

  1. Include/exclude custom metrics by name filters.

    See Include/Exclude Custom Metrics.

  2. Include/exclude metrics emitted by certain containers, Kubernetes annotations, or any other container label at collection time.

    See Prioritize/Include/Exclude Designated Containers.

  3. Exclude metrics from unwanted ports.

    See Blacklist Ports.
