Issue/Introduction

You use the streamexport.metricFamilyWhiteList.cfg to filter the exports to a specific list of counters you want.

The format is

whitelist.1 = <metric name>

whitelist.2 = <metric name>

Cause

If you add a metric as say

whitelist.1 = normalizedmemoryinfo

Then edit it to

whitelist.1 = normalizedportinfo

both metrics will remain in the cache and get collected.

Environment

Release : 3.x

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

If you wish to remove a metric or replace a metric you must remove or comment out that entire line and use a new numerical value for the new metric

E.G.

#whitelist.1 = normalizedmemoryinfo

whitelist.2 = normalizedportinfo

Then recycle the collection using rest.
