@fgiunchedi - in starting to upgrade hosts to stretch I ran across this message of sadness:
BREAKING CHANGES The data format in Prometheus 2.0 has completely changed and is not backwards compatible with 1.x. Prometheus 2 will create a new data directory in /var/lib/prometheus/metrics2. The old data in /var/lib/prometheus/metrics can not be read by the new version. There is no conversion tool; if you want to retain access to the old data, it is necessary to run a separate Prometheus 1.x instance on that data directory. (This package makes no provision to allow this.)
How are you handling this in prod? Thanks!
