Upcoming change for Plan / Project Management xMAU PI event
I wasn't sure which issue template to use but here is the gist...
Plan and Project Management currently use the
issues metric for xMAU. With the availability of Redis HLL counters, we can now collect MAU in a more expressive manner. We are done with implementing the necessary counters (gitlab-org/gitlab#229918 (closed)). All of those events are mapped to the
issues_edit Category and aggregate total unique users across all events under
We need to work through migrating Plan xMAU and Project Management xMAU to derive xMAU from this counter. There is a corresponding weekly counter available as well.
- Given these events were instrumented in 13.4, 13.5, and 13.6...how do we gracefully transition our current xMAU dashboards to use the new events given it will take months to reach the same level of instance saturation the current counters have.
- How do we not lose historical data on the current xMAU charts?
