When the sockaddr metrics are enabled for HTTP Services they cause a "shadow" (for lack of better terms) HTTP collector to be created. This collector has an incomplete metric template (config) which results in HTTPCollector making double the connections AND trying to connect with incomplete config (no method, path, proxy, etc)
Incomplete template example:
Full HTTP template:
Although this may seem harmless. In a large environment monitoring hundreds of HTTP services this creates a large overhead. This can also create extra work for web servers as they have double the requests from agent. Bypassing proxy can also result in bad information.
Workaround: Disable collection of netstat metrics (disabled by default)
