- Are you using one of our collectors to send data? Most likely, you’re looking at two (or more) identical metrics that were sent in two (or more) distinct streams, and were summed over some dimension. To fix that, specify the relevant stream next to the metric in question.
Here's an example of a measurement ("visitors") associated with 3 distinct streams:
- Are you using REST API to send data? You’re sending the same metric sample twice within a short time (i.e., both samples arrive within the same time 'bucket'), and they‘re aggregated by summation. This may happen when metrics are sent manually via Postman, Curl, etc., but may also result from a broken API pipeline (e.g., metrics were erroneously sent in the same API request with the same timestamp).
