Improve usage pings about Geo
Problem to solve
Our ~"usage ping" shows there is an average of
geo_nodes. This isn't a big surprise. We have usage pings of 130k CE hosts, and only 700 EEP hosts. So even if every EEP host would have 2 Geo nodes, we still would only get an average of
0.01. And then I even didn't take EES hosts into account.
GitLab as a company would benefit from seeing better metrics about how many EEP+EEU hosts would use Geo, independent on the number of nodes.
I haven't dug into the details of how ~"usage ping" works, so no idea for now.
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
