Overview

This document describes the Monasca API v2.0, which supports Monitoring as a Service (MONaaS). The Monasca API provides a RESTful JSON interface for interacting with and managing monitoring related resources.

The API consists of six main resources:

  1. Versions - Provides information about the supported versions of the API.
  2. Metrics - Provides for storage and retrieval of metrics.
  3. Measurements - Operations for querying measurements of metrics.
  4. Statistics - Operations for evaluating statistics of metrics.
  5. Notification Methods - Represents a method, such as email, which can be associated with an alarm definition via an action. When an alarm is triggered notification methods associated with the alarm definition are triggered.
  6. Alarm Definitions - Provides CRUD operations for alarm definitions.
  7. Alarms - Provides CRUD operations for alarms, and querying the alarm state history.

Before using the API, you must first get a valid auth token from Keystone. All API operations require an auth token specified in the header of the http request.

Metric Name and Dimensions

A metric is uniquely identified by a name and set of dimensions.

Name

Defines the name of a metric. A name is of type string(255). The name may include any characters except the following: > < = { } ( ) , ' " \ ; &. Note that JSON does allow control characters (such as \n), however these should not be used in metric names.

Dimensions

A dictionary of (key, value) pairs. The key and value are of type string(255). Dimension keys may not begin with '_' (underscore). The dimension key and value strings may include any characters except the following: > < = { } , ' " \ ; &. Note that JSON does allow control characters (such as \n), however these should not be used in dimension keys or values. Dimension keys and values must not be empty.

Text Representation

In this document, metrics will be represented in the form name{name=value,name=value} where name is the metric name and the name=value pairs in the curly braces are the dimensions. For example, cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon} represents a metric with the name "cpu.idle_perc" and the dimensions "service=monitoring" and "hostname=mini-mon".

Measurement

A measurement is a value with a timestamp for a specific Metric. The value is represented by a double, e.g. 42.0 or 42.42.

Value Meta

Optionally, a measurement may also contain extra data about the value which is known as value meta. Value meta is a set of name/value pairs that add textual data to the value of the measurement. The value meta will be returned from the API when the measurement is read. Only measurements that were written with value meta will have the key value pairs when read from the API. The value meta is ignored when computing statistics such as average on measurements.

For an example of how value meta is used, imagine this metric: http_status{url: http://localhost:8070/healthcheck, hostname=devstack, service=object-storage}. The measurements for this metric have a value of either 1 or 0 depending if the status check succeeded. If the check fails, it would be helpful to have the actual http status code and error message if possible. So instead of just a value, the measurement will be something like: {Timestamp=now(), value=1, value_meta{http_rc=500, error="Error accessing MySQL"}}

Up to 16 separate key/value pairs of value meta are allowed per measurement. The keys are required and are trimmed of leading and trailing whitespace and have a maximum length of 255 characters. The value is a string and value meta (with key, value and '{"":""}' combined) has a maximum length of 2048 characters. The value can be an empty string. Whitespace is not trimmed from the values.

Alarm Definitions and Alarms

Alarm Definitions are policies that specify how Alarms should be created. By using Alarm Definitions, the user doesn't have to create individual alarms for each system or service. Instead, a small number of Alarm Definitions can be managed and Monasca will create Alarms for systems and services as they appear.

An Alarm Definition has an expression for evaluating one or more metrics to determine if there is a problem. Depending on the Alarm Definition expression and match_by value, Monasca will create one or more Alarms depending on the measurements that are received. The match_by parameter specifies which dimension or dimensions should be used to determine if one or more alarms will be created.

An example is the best way to show this. Imagine two Alarm Definitions have been created:

Alarm Definition 1 has an expression of avg(cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring}) < 20 and the match_by parameter is not set. Alarm Definition 2 has an expression of min(cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring}) < 10 and the match_by parameter is set to hostname.

When a measurement for the metric cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon} is first received after the Metric Definitions have been created, an Alarm is created for both Alarm Definitions. The metric is added to both Alarms. The following set of Alarm Definitions and Alarm would exist:

Alarm Definition 1:

Alarm 1 - Metrics: cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon}

Alarm Definition 2:

Alarm 1 - Metrics: cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon}

Now, when a measurement for the metric cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack} is received, the two Alarm Definitions define different behaviors. Since the value for the hostname dimension is different from the value for the existing Alarm from Alarm Definition 2, and Alarm Definition 2 has specified a match_by parameter on hostname, a new Alarm will be created. Alarm Definition 1 does not have a value for match_by, so this metric is added to the existing Alarm. This gives us the following set of Alarm Definitions and Alarms:

Alarm Definition 1:

Alarm 1 - Metrics: cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon} and cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack}

Alarm Definition 2:

Alarm 1 - Metrics: cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon}
Alarm 2 - Metrics: cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack}

Alarm Definition 1 is evaluating the status of the monitoring service as a whole, while Alarm Definition 2 evaluates each system in the service.

Now if another system is configured into the monitoring service, then when a measurement is received for its cpu.idle_perc metric, that metric will be added to the Alarm for Alarm Definition 1 and a new Alarm will be created for Alarm Definition 2, all without any user intervention. The system will be monitored without requiring the user to explicitly add alarms for the new system as other monitoring systems require.

If an Alarm Definition expression has multiple subexpressions, for example, avg(cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring}) < 10 or avg(cpu.user_perc{service=monitoring}) > 60 and a match_by value set, then the metrics for both subexpressions must have the same value for the dimension specified in match_by. For example, assume this Alarm Definition:

Expression avg(cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring}) < 10 or avg(cpu.user_perc{service=monitoring}) > 60 and match_by is hostname

Now assume a measurement for each of these four metrics is received by Monasca:

cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon}
cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack}
cpu.user_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon}
cpu.user_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack}

This will cause two Alarms to be created, one for each unique value of hostname. One Alarm will have the metrics:

avg(cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon}) and avg(cpu.user_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=mini-mon})

and another will have the metrics:

avg(cpu.idle_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack}) and avg(cpu.user_perc{service=monitoring,hostname=devstack})

Note that the value of match_by, "hostname", is used to match the metrics between the subexpressions, hence the name 'match_by'.

As a negative example, assume a measurement for the below metric is received by Monasca:

cpu.idle_perc{service=nova,hostname=nova1}

This metric does not have the service=monitoring dimension, so it will not match the Alarm Definition and no Alarm will be created or metric added to an existing alarm.

An Alarm will only get created when measurements are seen for metrics that match all subexpressions in the Alarm Definition. If match_by is set, then each metric must have a value for at least one of the values in match_by. If match_by is not set, only one Alarm will be created for an Alarm Definition.

The value of the match_by parameter can also be a list, for example, hostname,device. In that case, Alarms will be created and metrics added based on all values of match_by.

For example, assume the Alarm Definition with the expression max(disk.space_used_perc{service=monitoring}) > 90 and match_by set to hostname. This will create one alarm for each system that contains all of the metrics for each device. If instead, the match_by is set to hostname,device, then a separate alarm will be created for each device in each system.

To illustrate, assume a measurement for each of these four metrics is received by Monasca:

disk.space_used_perc{device:/dev/sda1,hostname=mini-mon}
disk.space_used_perc{device:tmpfs,hostname=mini-mon}
disk.space_used_perc{device:/dev/sda1,hostname=devstack}
disk.space_used_perc{device:tmpfs,hostname=devstack}

Given the expression max(disk.space_used_perc) > 90 and match_by set to hostname, this will create two alarms:

Alarm 1 - Metrics: disk.space_used_perc{device:/dev/sda1,hostname=mini-mon}, disk.space_used_perc{device:tmpfs,hostname=mini-mon}
Alarm 2 - Metrics: disk.space_used_perc{device:/dev/sda1,hostname=devstack}, disk.space_used_perc{device:tmpfs,hostname=devstack}

If instead, match_by is set to hostname,device, then four alarms will be created:

Alarm 1 - Metrics: disk.space_used_perc{device:/dev/sda1,hostname=mini-mon}
Alarm 2 - Metrics: disk.space_used_perc{device:tmpfs,hostname=mini-mon}
Alarm 3 - Metrics: disk.space_used_perc{device:/dev/sda1,hostname=devstack}
Alarm 4 - Metrics: disk.space_used_perc{device:tmpfs,hostname=devstack}

The second value of match_by will create an Alarm for each device. For each device that fills up, a separate Alarm will be triggered. The first value of match_by will give you less Alarms to display in the dashboard but if an Alarm has already triggered for one device and another device fills up, the Alarm won't be triggered again.

If desired, an Alarm Definition can be created that exactly matches a set of metrics. The match_by should not be set. Only one Alarm will be created for that Alarm Definition.

Alarms have a state that is set by the Threshold Engine based on the incoming measurements.

  • UNDETERMINED - No measurements have been received for at least one of the subexpressions in any period for a least 2 * periods (see below for definition of period and periods
  • OK - Measurements have been received and the Alarm Definition Expression evaluates to false for the given measurements
  • ALARM - Measurements have been received and the Alarm Definition Expression evaluates to true for the given measurements

The Alarms are evaluated and their state is set once per minute.

Alarms contain three fields that may be edited via the API. These are the alarm state, lifecycle state, and the link. The alarm state is updated by Monasca as measurements are evaluated, and can be changed manually as necessary. The lifecycle state and link fields are not maintained or updated by Monasca, instead these are provided for storing information related to external tools.

Deterministic or non-deterministic alarms

By default all alarm definitions are assumed to be non-deterministic. There are 3 possible states such alarms can transition to: OK, ALARM, UNDETERMINED. On the other hand, alarm definitions can be also deterministic. In that case alarm is allowed to transition only: OK and ALARM state.

Following expression avg(cpu.user_perc{hostname=compute_node_1}) > 10 means that potential alarm and transition to ALARM state is restricted to specific machine. If for some reason that host would crash and stay offline long enough, there would be no measurements received from it. In this case alarm will transition to UNDETERMINED state.

On the other hand, some metrics are irregular and look more like events. One case is metric created only if something critical happens in the system. For example an error in log file or deadlock in database. If non-deterministic alarm definition would be created using expression count(log.error{component=mysql}) >= 1), that alarm could stay in UNDETERMINED state for most of its lifetime. However, from operator point of view, if there are no errors related to MySQL, everything works correctly. Answer to that situation is creating deterministic alarm definition using expression count(log.error{component=mysql}, deterministic) >= 1.

The deterministic alarm's main trait is preventing from transition to UNDETERMINED state. The alarm should be OK if no data is received. Also such alarms transition to OK immediately when created, rather than to UNDETERMINED state.

Finally, it must be mentioned that alarm definition can be composed of multiple expressions and that deterministic is actually part of it. The entire alarm definition is considered deterministic only if all of its expressions are such. Otherwise the alarm is non-deterministic.

For example:

avg(disk.space_used_perc{hostname=compute_node_1}) >= 99
    and
count(log.error{hostname=compute_node_1,component=kafka},deterministic) >= 1

potential alarm will transition to ALARM state if there is no usable disk space left and kafka starts to report errors regarding inability to save data to it. Second expression is deterministic, however entire alarm will be kept in UNDETERMINED state until such situation happens.

On the other hand, expression like this:

avg(disk.space_used_perc{hostname=compute_node_1},deterministic) >= 99
    and
count(log.error{hostname=compute_node_1,component=kafka},deterministic) >= 1

makes entire alarm deterministic. In other words - all parts of alarm's expression must be marked as deterministic in order for entire alarm to be considered such. Having definition like one above, potential alarm will stay in OK state as long as there is enough disk space left at compute_node_1 and there are no errors reported from kafka running at the same host.

Alarm Definition Expressions

The alarm definition expression syntax allows the creation of simple or complex alarm definitions to handle a wide variety of needs. Alarm expressions are evaluated every 60 seconds.

An alarm expression is a boolean equation which is used to evaluate the state of an alarm based on the received measurements. If the expression evaluates to true the state of the alarm to be set to ALARM. If it evaluates to false, the state of the alarm will be set to OK.

Syntax

At the highest level, you have an expression, which is made up of one or more subexpressions, joined by boolean operators. Parenthesis can be used around groups of subexpressions to indicated higher precedence. In a BNF style format where items enclosed in [] are optional, '*' means zero or more times, and '|' means or.

<expression>
    ::= <subexpression> [(and | or) <subexpression>]*

More formally, taking boolean operator precedence into account, where 'and' has higher precedence than 'or', results in the following.

<expression>
  ::= <and_expression> <or_logical_operator> <expression>
  | <and_expression>

<and_expression>
  ::= <sub_expression> <and_logical_operator> <and_expression>
  | <sub_expression>

Each subexpression is made up of several parts with a couple of options:

<sub_expression>
    ::= <function> '(' <metric> [',' deterministic] [',' period] ')' <relational_operator> threshold_value ['times' periods]
    | '(' expression ')'

Period must be an integer multiple of 60. The default period is 60 seconds.

Expression is by default non-deterministic (i.e. when expression does not contain deterministic keyword). If however deterministic option would be desired, it is enough to have deterministic keyword inside expression.

The logical_operators are: and (also &&), or (also ||).

<and_logical_operator> ::= 'and' | '&&'
<or_logical_operator> ::= 'or' | '||'

A metric can be a metric name only or a metric name followed by a list of dimensions. The dimensions further qualify the metric name.

<metric>
  ::=  metric_name
  | metric_name '{' <dimension_list> '}'

Any number of dimensions can follow the metric name.

<dimension_list>
  ::= <dimension>
  | <dimension> ',' <dimension_list>

A dimension is simply a key-value pair.

<dimension>
  ::= dimension_name '=' dimension_value

The relational_operators are: lt (also <), gt (also >), lte (also <=), gte (also >=).

<relational_operator>
  ::= 'lt' | '<' | 'gt' | '>' | 'lte' | '<=' | 'gte' | '>='

The list of available statistical functions include the following.

<function>
  ::= 'min' | 'max' | 'sum' | 'count' | 'avg' | 'last'

where 'avg' is the arithmetic average and last is the single most recent value of the metric. When using the last function, the values for 'period' and 'periods' will be ignored. Note, threshold values are always in the same units as the metric that they are being compared to.

Simple Example

In this example the metric uniquely identified with the name cpu.system_perc and dimension hostname=host.domain.com is compared to the threshold 95.

cpu.system_perc{hostname=host.domain.com} > 95

More Complex Example

In this example the average of the same metric as in the previous example is evaluated over a 120 second period for 3 times so that the expression will evaluate to true if the average is greater than 95 for a total of 360 seconds.

avg(cpu.system_perc{hostname=host.domain.com}, 120) > 95 times 3

Note that period is the number of seconds for the measurement to be done on. They can only be in a multiple of 60. Periods is how many times in a row that this expression must be true before triggering the alarm. Both period and periods are optional and default to 60 and 1 respectively.

Functions work on all metric measurements during the period time frame.

  • min (returns the minimum of all the values)
  • max (returns the maximum of all the values)
  • sum (returns the sum of all the values)
  • count (returns the number of metric observations)
  • avg (returns the average of all the values)
  • last (returns the single most recent value, ignores values for 'period' and 'periods')

The metric is a complex identifier that says the name and optional dimensions.

Compound alarm example

In this example a compound alarm expression is evaluated involving two thresholds.

avg(cpu.system_perc{hostname=hostname.domain.com}) > 90 or avg(disk_read_ops{hostname=hostname.domain.com, device=vda}, 120) > 1000

Deterministic alarm example

In this example alarm is created with one expression which is deterministic

count(log.error{}, deterministic) > 1

Non-deterministic alarm with deterministic sub expressions

In this example alarm's expression is composed of 3 parts where two of them are marked as deterministic. However entire expression is non-deterministic because of the 3rd expression.

count(log.error{}, deterministic) > 1 or count(log.warning{}, deterministic) > 1 and avg(cpu.user_perc{}) > 10

Changing Alarm Definitions

Once an Alarm Definition has been created, the value for match_by and any metrics in the expression cannot be changed. This is because those fields control the metrics used to create Alarms and Alarms may already have been created. The function, operator, period, periods and any boolean operators can change, but not the metrics in subexpressions or the number of subexpressions. All other fields in an Alarm Definition can be changed.

The only option to change metrics or match_by is to delete the existing Alarm Definition and create a new one. Deleting an Alarm Definition will delete all Alarms associated with it.

Notification Methods

Notification methods are resources used to specify a notification name, type and address that notifications can be sent to. After a notification method has been created, it can be associated with actions in alarm definitions, such that when an alarm state transition occurs, one or more notifications can be sent.

Currently, notification method types of email, PagerDuty and webhooks are supported. In the case of email, the address is the email address. In the case of PagerDuty, the address is the PagerDuty Service API Key. In the case of a webhook, the address is the URL of the webhook.

Common Request Headers

This section documents the common request headers that are used in requests.

Common Http Request Headers

The standard Http request headers that are used in requests.

  • Content-Type - The Internet media type of the request body. Used with POST and PUT requests. Must be application/json.
  • Accept - Internet media types that are acceptable in the response. Must be application/json.
  • X-Requested-With (optional) - Which headers are requested to be allowed. Filled in by browser as part of the CORS protocol.
  • Origin (optional) - The origin of page that is requesting cross origin access. Filled in by browser as part of the CORS protocol.

Non-standard request headers

The non-standard request headers that are used in requests.

  • X-Auth-Token (string, required) - Keystone auth token

Common Responses

The Monasca API utilizes HTTP response codes to inform clients of the success or failure of each request. Clients should use the HTTP response code to trigger error handling if necessary. This section discusses various API error responses.

  • 200 - A request succeeded.
  • 201 - A resource has been successfully created.
  • 204 - No content
  • 400 - Bad request
  • 401 - Unauthorized
  • 404 - Not found
  • 409 - Conflict
  • 422 - Unprocessable entity

Paging

The Monasca API implements a paging mechanism to allow users to 'page' through result sets returned from the API. The paging functionality is limited to resources that return unbounded lists of results. This permits the user to consume as much data from the API as is needed without placing undo memory consumption burdens on the Monasca API Server. The paging mechanism is accomplished by allowing the user to specify an offset and a limit in the request URL as query parameters.

For example:

"http://192.168.10.4:8070/v2.0/metrics/measurements?offset=2015-03-03T05%3A21%3A55Z&limit=1000&name=cpu.system_perc&dimensions=hostname%3Adevstack&start_time=2014-07-18T03%3A00%3A00Z"

Results sets that would otherwise return more results if there had not been a limit will include a next link with the offset prepopulated. The user only need use the next link to get the next set of results.

If no limit is specified in the request URL, then a server-wide configurable limit is applied.

Offset

Offsets can be either identifier offsets, timestamp offsets or combinational offsets that have an identifier part and timestamp part. The identifier can be an integer or string (including hexadecimal numbers). The use of either integer, string, timestamp or combination is determined by the resource being queried.

For example, an integer offset would look like this:

offset=999

Integer offsets are zero based.

A string offset would look like this:

offset=c60ec47e-5038-4bf1-9f95-4046c6e9a759

A hexadecimal string offset would look like this:


offset=01ce0acc66131296c8a17294f39aee44ea8963ec

A timestamp offset would look like this:

offset=2104-01-01T00:00:01Z

A dimension value offset would look as follows:

offset=dimensionValue2

A combinational offset with hexdecimal id would look as follows:

offset=01ce0acc66131296c8a17294f39aee44ea8963ec_2104-01-01T00:00:01Z

Different resources use different offset types because of the internal implementation of different resources depends on different types of mechanisms for indexing and identifying resources. For example, the offset in measurement resources contains both ID and timestamp. The type and form of the offsets for each resource can be determined by referring to the examples in each resource section below.

The offset is determined by the ID and/or timestamp values of the last element in the result list. Users wishing to manually create a query URL can use the ID and/or timestamp of the last element in the previously returned result set as the offset. The proceeding result set will return all elements with an ID greater than the ID in the offset, and if the offset is two-part, also all the elements with the same ID as that in the offset and having a timestamp later than the timestamp value in the offset. The automatically generated offset in the next link does exactly this; it uses the ID and/or timestamp in the last element.

The offset can take the form of an integer ID, string ID, timestamp, or a combination of both ID and timestamp, but the user should treat the offset as an opaque reference. When using offsets in manually generated URLs, users enter them as strings that look like integers, timestamps, or strings. Future releases may change the type and form of the offsets for each resource.

Limit

The Monasca API has a server-wide default limit that is applied. It is hard-coded to 10,000 entries. Users may specify their own limit in the URL, but the server-wide limit may not be exceeded, e.g.:

limit=5000

JSON Results

All Monasca API results are in the form of JSON. For resources that return a list of elements, the JSON object returned will contain a 'links' array and an 'elements' array.

The 'links' array will contain a 'self' element that is the original URL of the request that was used to generate the result. The 'links' array may also contain a 'next' element if the number of elements in the result would exceed the query limit. The 'next' link can be used to query the Monasca API for the next set of results, thus allowing the user to page through lengthy data sets.

The 'elements' array will contain the items from the resource that match the query parameters. Each element will have an 'id' element. The 'id' element of the last item in the elements list is used as the offset in the 'next' link.

For example:

{
    "links": [
        {
            "rel": "self",
            "href": "http://192.168.10.4:8070/v2.0/metrics&limit=2"
        },
        {
            "rel": "next",
            "href": "http://192.168.10.4:8070/v2.0/metrics?offset=1&limit=2"
        }
    ],
    "elements": [
        {
            "id": 0,
            "name": "name1",
            "dimensions": {
                "key1": "value1"
            }
        },
        {
            "id": 1,
            "name": "name2",
            "dimensions": {
                "key1": "value1"
            }
        }
    ]
}

The Monasca ApI comes with a built-in healthcheck mechanism. It is available in two flavours, both accessible under /healthcheck endopoint.

Complex check

The complex check not only returns a response with success code if Monasca API is up and running by it also verifies if dependant components , such as Kafka, Alarm database (MariadDB/MySQL, PostgreSQL), Metrics database (Cassandra, InfluxdDB) are healthy too.

Monasca API will respond with following codes:

  • 200 - both API and external components are healthy.
  • 503 - API is running but problems with peripheral components have been spotted.

Example: curl -XGET 192.168.10.6:8070/healthcheck

Peripheral checks

  • Kafka is considered healthy if connection to broker can be established and configured topics can be found.
  • Alarm Database (MariaDB/MySQL, PostgreSQL) is considered healthy if connection to database can be established and sample query can be executed.
  • Time Series Database (TSDB) is considered healthy if: InfluxDB is set health check is verified according to the InfluxDB documentation (/ping), Cassandra is set health check is verified through new connection to the database.

Simple check

The simple check only returns response only if Monasca API is up and running. It does not return any data because it is accessible only for HEAD request. If the Monasca Api is up and running the following response code: 204 is expected.

Example: curl -XHEAD 192.168.10.6:8070/healtcheck

Metrics

The metrics resource allows metrics to be created and queried. The X-Auth-Token is used to derive the tenant that submits metrics. Metrics are stored and scoped to the tenant that submits them, or if the tenant_id query parameter is specified and the tenant has the monitoring-delegate role, the metrics are stored using the specified tenant ID. Note that several of the GET methods also support the tenant_id query parameter, but the monasca-admin role is required to get cross-tenant metrics, statistics, etc..

Create Metric

Create metrics.

POST /v2.0/metrics

Headers

  • X-Auth-Token (string, required) - Keystone auth token
  • Content-Type (string, required) - application/json

Path Parameters

None.

Query Parameters

  • tenant_id (string, optional, restricted) - Tenant ID to create metrics on behalf of. This parameter can be used to submit metrics from one tenant, to another. Normally, this parameter is used when the Agent is being run as an operational monitoring tenant, such as monitoring OpenStack infrastructure, and needs to submit metrics for an OpenStack resource, such as a VM, but those metrics need to be accessible to the tenant that owns the resource. Usage of this query parameter is restricted to users with the monitoring-delegate role.

Request Body

Consists of a single metric object or an array of metric objects. A metric has the following properties:

  • name (string(255), required) - The name of the metric.
  • dimensions ({string(255): string(255)}, optional) - A dictionary consisting of (key, value) pairs used to uniquely identify a metric.
  • timestamp (string, required) - The timestamp in milliseconds from the Epoch.
  • value (float, required) - Value of the metric. Values with base-10 exponents greater than 126 or less than -130 are truncated.
  • value_meta ({string(255): string}(2048), optional) - A dictionary consisting of (key, value) pairs used to add information about the value. Value_meta key value combinations must be 2048 characters or less including '{"":""}' 7 characters total from every json string.

The name and dimensions are used to uniquely identify a metric.
