In RC1 the Collection Queries, DLO Compression, DLO size on disk and Discarded Messages are all stuk on a ?.

I would expect at least Collection Queries to show some output as they should be happening with exported resources in our catalogs. I'd also expect API queries done by Puppetboard to influence that number.

Just like PDB-652 it took a while but Collection Queries is now showing numbers, the rest of the metrics is still at a ?.

  • DLO compression is transient, it only gets calculated after a reject and after compression
  • The DLO size on disk, should not be transient, however ... it seems to me looking at dlo.clj, that this stuff only gets calculated on a failure. So while the data is correct and isn't just "in ram" it doesn't get populated until the first failure is seen after startup.

I think point #2 is a bug, at least but we should dig into #1 as well as I might have missed something.

This has been the behaviour for a while as well, but I'm leaving this ticket as it stands. I think its a valid bug, but not a release blocker.

Added some screenshots to confirm my assumptions - indeed the DLO size on disk and discarded messages are not updated until the first fault seen since startup.

The first screenshot shows these as ? before failure, second screenshot shows the results immediately after failure.
