With remote write or version 1.2.0 or higher of the Prometheus OpenMetrics integration, you can create histograms and percentiles (summaries) of your data. The OpenMetrics data is based on New Relic's guidelines in GitHub for higher level metric abstractions , while the remote write data closely matches the schema of the original Prometheus data. The Prometheus sample (value) becomes an InfluxDB field using the value field key. It is always a float. Prometheus labels become InfluxDB tags. All # HELP and # TYPE lines are ignored. [v1.8.6 and later] Prometheus remote write endpoint drops unsupported Prometheus values (NaN,-Inf, and +Inf) rather than reject the entire batch.
