Subject Re: [DISCUSS] KIP-190: Handle client-ids consistently between clients and brokers
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2017 10:35:37 GMT
Hi Ewen,

I understand your point of view and ideally we'd have one convention
for handling all user provided strings. This KIP reused the
sanitization mechanism we had in place for user principals.

I think both ways have pros and cons but what I like about early
sanitization (as is currently) is that it's consistent. While
monitoring tools have to know about the sanitization, all metrics are
sanitized the same way before being passed to reporters and that
includes all "fields" in the metric name (client-id, user).

Moving the sanitization into JMXReporter is a publicly visible change
as it would affect the metrics we pass to other reporters.
