Is there any documentation as to what each of the metrics outputted by stellar-core -c metrics means? In particular, I'm interested in determining the number of transactions reviewed by a particular validator since it came online, or the first ledger a validator externalized since coming online, from which I should be able to determine the number of transactions.

EDIT: They released the docs in v10.1.0 in metrics.md.

Unfortunately, there's not much about metrics anywhere in the official docs or repositories besides the GET metrics/ endpoint in the Horizon API.

I found an open issue in the repository regarding undocumented metrics values, with a proposed documentation in an open PR but it has not been merged yet. Maybe when it is properly addressed we'll have more information.

You can see its draft version here.
