Hi ! Sorry for the drive-by comment, but I'm fascinated by all the things in the metrics world. Most of the stuff I've seen is based on some combination of Grafana+timeseries db (like InfluxDB). Do you think this combo might be useful here ? Either from just looking at how Grafana implemented things to actually using Grafana as a frontend and possibly joining forces with them on improving the graphing capabilities if needed ?
Grafana allows for the specified group of users to edit the dashboards, this might allow for the load on the changes to be spread a bit between people. Not sure if all the other requirements mentioned are met (e.g. histograms seem to be in the works still)
Hope this helps more than disrupts your flow.
