    Is it possible to delete metrics from Wavefront?

      I am think of of using wavefront as a key-value store for counters, as it is easily available as charts.

       

      However, it would introduce many new keys. I am thinking it might require to delete those keys periodically.

      For statsD, to delete an existing key, I could just delete the corresponding whisper directory.

       

      Is this possible to do in wavefront? If so, which wavefront API can do this work?

       

      Or, is introducing new keys (say 2000 per day) not a problem, and they don't need to be deleted? (I read about the pricing, it only charges by rate of writing: https://www.wavefront.com/pricing/ )
