Description

2 years ago
The current about:telemetry view would only allow us to inspect events that go into the main ping.
We should add a separate view so we can inspect all recorded events.

FWIW, we'll need similar views for dynamic scalars and histograms later.

Could you provide more information / documentation on what dynamic scalars and histograms are ?

This is similar to the scalar and histogram rendering we have now, the difference will be that they are not "built-in" but instead registered at run-time.

We decided that these "dynamic" events will go into a separate process section in the main ping, e.g.:
payload/processes/dynamic

That means we can just add a new "process" entry and use the existing UI to view the data.
