Looks like the Runtime team took some out in v234, added them back in in

From the Runtime Slack:

Yep, I've had a back thread with Runtime OG who now has the DEA metrics
and who I thought had implemented all previous /varz (aka Collector)
metrics into the firehose. No answer from Mr Fraenkel yet.

Including Jim Campbell to make sure this reaches him.

by upgrading to CF v234 (including pre-release v232) we lost all our
monitoring capabilities regarding DEA and HM9000 (we were still using
Collector). By migrating to Firehose only a fraction of the metrics was
available. Very important metrics for our productive systems like
‘available_memory_ratio’ were just added in CF v235. In the meantime, we
were pretty much “flying blind”.

We replaced not existing metrics like ‘DEA…mem_used_bytes’ and
‘HM9000…healthy’, which were available via Collector, with metrics from
Bosh. Is this the way to go or are there any plans to add them again?
