Hi there. I want to request the ability to import data into an instance. Specifically, I am hoping for a way to add historical data to a new instance that is monitoring the same objects, with the same metrics labeled as the exact same datapoints, just the source is different. In our case we see a need to create a new datasource which captures the same data with our old devices and a bunch of new ones, and more in the future. The old datasource used SNMP for monitoring, and we wish to replicate that into the new datasource, but make it all API calls via script, since the new ones do not support SNMP. For proper monitoring and troubleshooting of the devices we need to have the historical data for the old instance of old devices, while being in the same datasource as the new ones. For this very reason, we would like to see the ability to add historical data to a new instance after it has been exported from a separate and old instance, especially if the datapoint names match. I have a feeling this particular case study might be relevant to other users as well.
We receive requests from customers every now and then asking whether we could display the number of devices/instances dynamically on a widget, either through a Big Number Widget or Custom Graph Widget. An ancestral practice involves creating a complex datapoint with a value of 1, and then aggregate the sum of this datapoint on the widget to retrieve the total number of devices/instances. This could be tedious as it involves changes made on the DataSource level. There’s good news, though - We have modernized and simplified this method after making a breakthrough on a recent ticket utilizing the following neat and simple method, and we’d like to share this idea with our users: On a high-level, the quintessence of this stratagem is as follows: 1) Identify a non-zero datapoint where you'd like to see it's devices/instance count 2) Configure an Aggregate SUM of this datapoint e.g. AggregateSUM 3) Configure an Aggregate AVERAGE of this datapoint e.g. AggregateAVG 4) Create a Virtual Datapoint with the following expression: AggregateSUM/AggregateAVG Note: Datapoint with NaN will not be counted as a device or instance in the process of aggregation. Example of device count configuration:- Example of instance count configuration:-
I'm attempting to create a report for our management that would show hostname, winvolume usage instances, capacity of volume, current usage of volume, percent used of volume, groups host belongs to, current effective threshold (global/group/host/instance), current severity of alert (if any), alert acked, instance in sdt, alerting disabled effectively (group/host/instance) Most of that is retrieved relatively easily, except for effective threshold. Can that be added to the api?
We need to be able to grant a user to be able to see only select or tagged instances of a datasource. For example VM statics inside a vcenter. We have Instance Groups with the tags by group or client. Need to be able to link users to see those. or a new security Tag we can add.
