Juttle OpenTSDB Adapter

Build Status

OpenTSDB adapter for the Juttle data flow language, with read & write support.


Read all df.bytes.used metric values from 30 minutes ago to now.

read opentsdb -from :30 minutes ago: name = "df.bytes.used"

Add a debug option to return the final http query url:

read opentsdb -debug true -from :30 minutes ago: name = "df.bytes.used"

Filter by host tag:

read opentsdb -from :30 minutes ago: name = "df.bytes.used" host = "test_host_name"

Write a test point:

emit -points [ { time: '2016-01-01T01:01:01.111Z', name: 'test.test', value: 11, tag1: 'a_tag' } ] | write opentsdb


Like Juttle itself, the adapter is installed as a npm package. Both Juttle and the adapter need to be installed side-by-side:

$ npm install juttle
$ npm install juttle-opentsdb-adapter


The adapter needs to be registered and configured so that it can be used from within Juttle. To do so, add the following to your ~/.juttle/config.json file:

    "adapters": {
        "opentsdb": {
            "host": "IP address",
            "port": 1234

Read options

Name Type Required Description
debug boolean no output a query url corresponding to current set of options and filters
from moment yes select points after this time (inclusive)
to moment no select points before this time (exclusive), defaults to :now:
id string no select the config instance to use

In addition to these options, read opentsdb supports a subset of standard Juttle read filters, namely:

  • tagfield = 'value'
  • tagfield = '*glob*'
  • combining the above filter expressions with AND

A metric name is required in the filter expression: name = "df.bytes.used".

Write options

Name Type Required Description
nameField string no the field that contains the metric name. Defaults to name.
valueField string no the field that contains the metric value. Defaults to value.
id string no select the config instance to use

write opentsdb: the data points passed into it must contain fields:

  • name (type: string)
  • value (type: number)
  • time (type: Juttle moment) Optionally, the points can contain one or more tag fields (type: string).


Whenever the opentsdb adapter can shape the entire Juttle flowgraph or its portion into an OpenTSDB query, it will do so, sending the execution to OpenTSDB, so only the matching data will come back into Juttle runtime. The portion of the program expressed in read opentsdb is always executed as an OpenTSDB query; the downstream Juttle processors are currently not optimized, but may be in the future.

List of optimized operations:

  • only filter expressions as part of read opentsdb (note: read opentsdb ... | filter is not optimized)

In case of unexpected behavior with optimized reads, add -optimize false option to read opentsdb to disable optimizations, and kindly report the problem as a GitHub issue.


Contributions are welcome! Please file an issue or open a pull request.

To check code style and run unit tests:

npm test

Both are run automatically by Travis.

When developing you may run into failures during linting where jscs complains about your coding style and an easy way to fix those files is to simply run jscs --fix test or jscs --fix lib from the root directory of the project. After jscs fixes things you should proceed to check that those changes are reasonable as auto-fixing may not produce the nicest of looking code.
