      Description

      Currently only simple characters and numbers are allowed in the tag name for the tag query language. Adding dot would allow users to exploded hierarchical tag structures before persisting them in Hawkular Metrics.

      For example, a system that keeps tags in json like structure:

      tag: {
       subtag1: value1,
       subtag2: {
          subsubtag1: value2
        }
      }
      

      This tag cannot be easily persisted today on Metrics. But allowing dot characters in the tag name will make this task simple. Here is how this would be persisted in Metrics:

      [tag.subtag1: value1, tag.subtag2.subsubtag1: value2]
