// Functions for recording metrics.
// For best practices on deciding when to emit to a histogram and what form
// the histogram should take, see
// Functions for recording UMA histograms. These can be used for cases
// when the histogram name is generated at runtime. The functionality is
// equivalent to macros defined in histogram_macros.h but allowing non-constant
// histogram names. These functions are slower compared to their macro
// equivalent because the histogram objects are not cached between calls.
// So, these shouldn't be used in performance critical code.

// For recording sparse histograms.
// The |sample| can be a negative or non-negative number.
// Sparse histograms are well suited for recording counts of exact sample values
// that are sparsely distributed over a relatively large range, in cases where
// ultra-fast performance is not critical. For instance, Sqlite.Version.* are
// sparse because for any given database, there's going to be exactly one
// version logged.
// Performance:
// ------------
// Sparse histograms are typically more memory-efficient but less time-efficient
// than other histograms. Essentially, they sparse histograms use a map rather
// than a vector for their backing storage; they also require lock acquisition
// to increment a sample, whereas other histogram do not. Hence, each increment
// operation is a bit slower than for other histograms. But, if the data is
// sparse, then they use less memory client-side, because they allocate buckets
// on demand rather than preallocating.
// Data size:
// ----------
// Note that server-side, we still need to load all buckets, across all users,
// at once. Thus, please avoid exploding such histograms, i.e. uploading many
// many distinct values to the server (across all users). Concretely, keep the
// number of distinct values <= 100 ideally, definitely <= 1000. If you have no
// guarantees on the range of your data, use clamping, e.g.:
// UmaHistogramSparse("MyHistogram", ClampToRange(value, 0, 200));
