------------------------------------------

             Summary: Invalid negative values for some AMS metrics
                 Key: AMBARI-18289
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-18289
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: ambari-metrics
    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
            Reporter: Aravindan Vijayan
            Assignee: Aravindan Vijayan
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.5.0


PROBLEM
Negative values are being reported for IOPS in the "system servers" dashboard

BUG
This was a dockerized environment. Negative rate values were seen because read/write counters
were dropping below the previous values at random times. On further investigation, it revealed
that this was due to the docker volume groups present on the host. It is expected of docker
containers to add/remove the volume groups during the lifecyle of a container. So, when a
volume group goes away, the read/write counters do not contribute to the total counter values,
thus making the value go below the last seen value.

FIX
Have a provision to discard such "special" disk partitions through a skip pattern. Individual
disk counter metrics can be used to get disk specific counter values. If skipped, they will
not contribute to the global counter metric.
