> We have a need to publish metrics out of some short-living processes, which is not really
well-suited to the current metrics system implementation which periodically publishes metrics
asynchronously (a behavior that works great for long-living processes). Of course I could
write my own metrics system, but it seems like such a waste to rewrite all the awesome code
currently in the MetricsSystemImpl and supporting classes.
> The way I'm proposing to solve this is to:
> 1. Refactor the MetricsSystemImpl class into an abstract base MetricsSystemImpl class
(common configuration and other code) and a concrete PeriodicPublishMetricsSystemImpl class
(timer thread).
> 2. Refactor the MetricsSinkAdapter class into an abstract base MetricsSinkAdapter class
(common configuration and other code) and a concrete AsyncMetricsSinkAdapter class (asynchronous
publishing using the SinkQueue).
> 3. Derive a new simple class OnDemandPublishMetricsSystemImpl from MetricsSystemImpl,
that just exposes a synchronous publish() method to do all the work.
> 4. Derive a SyncMetricsSinkAdapter class from MetricsSinkAdapter to just synchronously
push metrics to the underlying sink.
> Does that sound reasonable? I'll attach the patch with all this coded up and simple tests
(could use some polish I guess, but wanted to get everyone's opinion first). Notice that this
is somewhat of a breaking change since MetricsSystemImpl is public (although it's marked with
InterfaceAudience.Private); if the breaking change is a problem I could just rename the refactored
classes so that PeriodicPublishMetricsSystemImpl is still called MetricsSystemImpl (and MetricsSystemImpl
-> BaseMetricsSystemImpl).
