_consumers and a11y _instantiated _flag to opt-out
No description provided.
Comment on attachment 8888518 [details] [diff] [review] patch For data review. We'd like to collect accurate client counts out on release for these probes. The instantiated flag is a bool, no privacy issue there afaict. The consumers probe is an enum that detects injected dlls to identify specific clients, which is no different from the recent opt-out consumer scalar we landed.

Comment on attachment 8888518 [details] [diff] [review] patch There are a few blocking issues and a bunch of nonblocking issues that should be followups: Blocking issues: * Both histograms need bug_numbers and alert_emails. alert_emails needs to have a real person who's responsible for the long-term value of the data (it may also have a list address). * The description of A11Y_CONSUMERS mentions an enum but not it's name, but I can't figure out what the recorded values mean. If there is an existing in-tree enumeration, at least point to it (by name or DXR link), or if there's not, the description should include what each value means. Non-blocking issues: * for A11Y_INSTANTIATED_FLAG, flag histograms are basically deprecated now, and it would be better to use a boolean scalar * both of these say record_in_processes main+content but I suspect that they are main-process-only and that would improve various aggregations

Oh, and when you add bug_numbers and alert_emails you can remove these histograms from the whitelist of old histograms that don't follow the rules (histogram-whitelists.json)
I forgot one non-blocking issue (can be a followup): typically opt-out metrics need to have a unit test to ensure that they still work. This is important because code refactorings fairly frequently break telemetry without people noticing. So I would strongly encourage you to try and get basic unit tests working for these metrics. I realize this might be difficult because our testing framework probably doesn't do much a11y.
- added bug#s (this bug) to the two probes I'm converting to opt-out - added emails for all four probes - removed entries from white lists - filed two follow ups, converting to boolean scalars and adding unit tests
