remote write URL path is used to set an endpoint path for the remote write protocol. For example, if your endpoint is

[backend] destination = example.domain:example_port remote write URL path = /storage/read
lost dimensions in the Netdata Backend Data Size operation monitoring chart estimate uncompressed buffer size on failures.
