Counters

What Are Counters?

Counters track an increasing number of occurrences of some event. A counter is unbounded and always monotonically increasing in any given run. A new run is started anytime that counter is reset to zero. Examples of counter measurements include the number of connections made to an app, the number of visitors to a website, the number of a times a write operation failed, etc.
