SteelCentral Metrics API gives scripts and program access to some of the information that is available in the AppInternals UI. This video is based on a workshop that was delivered a while back, it shows the usage of the AppInternals REST API with some common examples. I have added a Postman .JSON file (based on the wonderful work of Jon Hodgson) that can be used to follow the video example or can be used as a starter project.
A couple of things you can try to test when you are using these examples:
- Try to set "include_timeseries": true, to see time series data.
- After setting timeseries to true, change the bucket size "bucket_width_secs": 300, to see time series in 5 minutes timeseries instead of 1 minute time series. Hint, 15 minutes time frame and 5 minutes buckets you should get 3 results instead of 15.
- Change transaction type ID instance name to 21 to see the orders transaction, change application ID instance name to 2 to see data for the Tomcat application.
For the most updated information about SteelCentral REST API please refer to the documentation.
I hope you find this video and Postman JSON file useful.
