Define direction for pod log usage ping format
https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ee/merge_requests/10370 added pod log usage info to the usage ping on a per-project basis. However, a critical implementation step got missed (by me!), so the usage ping information wasn't actually showing up in https://version.gitlab.com (you can use your dev credentials to log in).
This actually broke parts of version.gitlab.com, but https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/version-gitlab-com/merge_requests/181 fixed it! However, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/version-gitlab-com/merge_requests/181 reports only the pod log usage total - not the per-project values we intended to include.
We now need to decide how to move forward.
Option 1 - Finish restricting to just totals.
- If we want to just restrict ourselves to total hits to the endpoint per-customer, there's some bloat that should be cleaned up. There's already and MR opened for this change: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ee/merge_requests/14049, so it wouldn't take much.
Option 2 - Support per-project counts on version.gitlab.com
- Unfortunately, version.gitlab.com doesn't actually have a UI for viewing per-project counts over time. To make the most effective use of this data, we'd need to add that functionality, which would take some time. Since the goal is to ultimately move away from usage ping, this may or may not be worth it.
