I am currently setting up the BFA plugin in my Jenkins instance and I really want to get some nice visualizations of how often certain build failures occur. I understand that you do not want to maintain the built-in graph visualizations.
So I have another proposal: How about supporting the Prometheus plugin by providing a Collector implementation?
Then people can generate graphs out of the metrics however they please (for example with Grafana) and even trigger alerts based on the data.
I intend to implement this functionality myself including tests. My initial research shows that I might have to reintroduce the getStatistics method that was removed here.
Would that be ok and would such a feature have a realistic chance of being accepted into the plugin?
