Removing unnecessary fields improves Nephron's performance slightly.
The following fields can be removed:
- windowStart and windowEnd: This information is also available when FlowSummaryData is processed by accessing the current window.
- ranking: The ranking attribute is not used when dashboards are displayed. Dashboard TopK-Aggregations rely on TopK calculations over time ranges that may cover several windows.
- group_by_key: This field is redundant. Separate fields for exporter, interface, dscp, host, application, and conversation do exist.
