Description

6 years ago
In telemetry evolution, newer datapoints(builds within last 2 weeks) can not be trusted because they are still being adopted. We need to determine when a build tends to achieve critical mass, and when the usage drops off such that the numbers reported by that build will not change[significantly].

End result should enable us to put a vertical line in telemetry evolution saying "data left of this line is likely to not change much(ie build is at maximum number of users)" and another line for "numbers from builds right of this line are changing too much to be trusted".

Annie, I don't see any justification for resolving this bug. Was this closed by accident?

i think we still want to work on this. We haven't quite determined what the scope of the analysis.

This is very similar to METRICS-995. See (2) in the comment. the current bug is about volatility whereas the metrics 995 is related to prediction.

This should be absorbed into Metrics-995 (maybe as a comment if Taras thinks this is different)
