SPM REST API | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps #API]

One feature of SPM Alerts HTTP API that we do want to call out here is the Alert Creation Designer

by Mick Emmett

By popular demand…we’ve just added some new goodness to SPM with the SPM REST API.  This new API lets you:

  • create SPM Apps for monitoring (e.g. generate a new SPM App + its token during deployment)
  • list all available metrics and charts for a specific App
  • list all alerts defined for some app (threshold, anomaly or heartbeat)
  • create new alerts (of any type: heartbeat, threshold, anomaly)
  • enable/disable or delete individual alerts

As you can tell from the above, we started by exposing APIs for SPM Alerts first.  Of course, we’ll be expanding the API to expose more SPM functionality, as well as Logsene. You can see all the details — including Listing Alerts, Creating, Disabling and Deleting Alerts, Metrics API, and more are on our wiki.

Alert Creation Designer

One feature of SPM Alerts HTTP API that we do want to call out here is the Alert Creation Designer.  The easiest way to prepare alert rules to be used in API calls is by using the Create Alert dialog available in SPM.

In the example below we use Solr’s req. count metric, whose chart is under the Req. Rate & Latency report, as shown in the screenshot below.

Req Rate Latency

Above every chart in SPM there is a little pull-down menu.  From there simply click on the Create Alert option to open the Alert dialog seen below.  A new “Show API Call” link is shown at the bottom of the dialog. Once clicked, it displays the API call as a “curl” command line. You can modify attributes shown in the dialog and update the API call details by clicking on the little Refresh icon.  Once you’re happy with alert rule parameters you can copy the curl command and execute it from the terminal.

Finally, for Heartbeat Alerts, you would just click on Heart icon on any report (as displayed below) to open a similar dialog:

Heartbeat

Typically, you would prepare your alert templates this way once, and then just tweak them remotely (for example, just use different token parameter to get it applied to your other apps, adjust metric names, thresholds, etc.).

Would this make your life easier?

If this functionality looks like it will make managing alerts more efficient, then check out a Free 30-day SPM trial by signing up.  There’s no commitment and no credit card required.  SPM monitors a ton of applications, like Elasticsearch, Solr, Hadoop, Spark, HBase, Kafka, Storm, Cassandra, Node.js & io.js, and more.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations.
