      Metrics have a schema. Pretending they don’t, and passing around a ragged schema every time you send a data point, seems like it would be an incredibly insane waste of space and bandwidth.

        I agree that the suggested JSON format is pretty wasteful, though it doesn’t mean the DB has to store it that inefficiently. From what I’ve seen with TSDB, though, there isn’t really a schema, so in that regard, this doesn’t seem worse?
