Question re: DSTs.
I would like to get data from a socket every 2 seconds (packet data) and
get the number of packets received every second. Since the packet data
is available only every 2 seconds, I was planning on getting the 1st set
of data, and dividing it by 2, then the next 2 seconds, getting that
data, divide it by 2, then get the difference between the 1st set and
the 2nd set. Then store that into the database.
I guess I am not sure what DST to use. If I use COUNTER or GAUGE? I
believe Counter stores the actual value but the amount has to be > than
the previous amount stored.
