COS integration with SysDig

Dear Team,

We have an Analytics Engine running in our PROD account, which interacts with COS instance (acts as storage for IAE)

Currently, we see that COS can be integrated with SysDig by enabling monitoring on the bucket level. However, it seems it only provides two TYPEs of metrics: bucket size and object counts., as referred in the document:

Our ask is how can we collect I/O metrics (reading speed and writing speed) and low-level performance metrics of COS instance (just like K8 nodes/pods). Can this service be provisioned as it would really strengthen our grip on the current environment.
