I’m trying to understand which metric I can look at to understand the “backlog size” of a given task queue. I found Get the count of currently active workflows and activities - #3 by Michael_Mole, though this post was discussing how to retrieve this count programmatically, which I’m not interested in - simply the metric.
If that’s not supported, looking at the scheduled_to_start latency metric is also acceptable to understand how “behind” we are for a given queue. I can see this is defined as “task_schedule_to_start_latency” from the Metrics defs.go. However, I’m having trouble finding this for a given queue. Here’s what I can see today, by doing a search in DataDog:
None of these metrics appear to contain values related to our specific workflows or task queues. Is there a different metric that allows us to understand schedule-to-start for a given task queue?
