About this task
For Files, two sets of metrics are collected each day: one for personal files and another for community files. One day of metrics is stored in one row in the database. Metric data only requires a few kilobytes of space, so in most cases there is no need to disable metric collection. You might want to disable metrics if collecting them affects performance. But if you disable metric collection there is no way to retrieve data from the days on which it was disabled.
