Currently the instrumentation is tied to the sampling rate of the schema in WikimediaEvents ($wgWMESchemaEditAttemptStepSamplingRate). We'd like to override it for just DiscussionTools, so we need a new config variable for the rate. This is akin to some tool-specific overrides that MobileFrontend already has in place.
Please set sampling rate for Discussion Tools related events to 1/5
Looked into Talk page edits by users in the four target wikis over the last 3 years in Superset, focusing on edits in Feb and Mar (that could continue to April and beyond).
If we consider our upper bound to be all these edits being made using DiscussionTools then we can expect around 1300 events per hour.
Sampled at 1/5th rate would mean 264 events per hour or 6350 events per day from the 4 wikis.
If this was a task related to events firing on the client, I assume Rummana would handle it, but this doesn't seem to be the case with this task.
Hi @ppelberg , we have not made any changes to how client side events are logged, just changed the number of events that make it to the db. Hence it should be okay for me to QA it.
In case I do not see an increase as expected in the events, we can dig further and check if there was an issue with event logging.
