Remove statsd plugin from Jenkins
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The statsd plugin on Jenkins creates way too many metrics which eat disk space on graphite T1075: Audit groups of metrics in Graphite that allocate a lot of disk space.

I don't think we actually use those metrics under hierarchy. I need to verify whether it is actually needed and if not remove the Jenkins statsd plugin entirely.

I have uninstalled the jenkins-statsd metric from the CI Jenkins using the web interface.

We will need to restart Jenkins on gallium to have the plugin unloaded.

I have restarted Jenkins, the statsd plugin is no more loaded hence no more data are sent to graphite under the hierarchy.
