Subject: [InfluxData Community] [Collect] Outputs.Cloudwatch write_statistics confusion


That sounds good. I'll try and do that today.
So basically, I'm sending raw metrics right now, but aws doesn't know any better that I'm actually calculating the aggregation myself.

Am I correct in assuming it still uses an efficient batching of the metrics to send in as few api calls as possible when I send metrics without write statistics? I have the output plugin set to drop all fields except the `_mean` so i'm accomplishing most of the filtering I need right now based on that at least.
