I'm interested in using rsconnect::showMetrics to track over time how many concurrent users I have visiting my app, so I have an understanding of peak load.
The connect_count metric is great for this if I have only 1 instance of the app. But if I have more than 1 instance set up, it looks like connect_count is giving me the mean number of connections across however many instances of the app were running at each point in time.
E.g. I've tested deliberately starting all 10 instances of the app (on a Professional plan), and getting 4 of my colleagues to connect to it. showMetrics then gives me a connect_count of 0.4. But if I have 4 instances running and the same 4 colleagues connected, showMetrics gives me a connect_count of 1.
Have I got that right?
And if so, is that the intended behaviour for showMetrics?
It makes showMetrics much less useful, because I can't see a way of also downloading how many instances were running at each point in time.
Any help/advice appreciated!
