Export app and machine agent status by Rest Api

Hi All,

 

we have a requirement for a project:

 

1. we need to extract all tiers and node details and dump into a CSV file

2. we need the app and machine agent status (agent up, down or % availability) details in the extraction

 

can anyone suggest some Rest API to extract the required data?

 

Regards,

Mandar Kadam

Hi Mandar,

 

I found this AppD Docs page that I think might help. Let me know if it does.

Hi Ryan,

 

Thanks for the reply,

But i have this already and this doesn't serve my goal, i need the status of the nodes like machine and App agent status which we see in tiers and nodes section like agent is 80% up or 0%. 

i want that data.

 

i have found some thing like agent availability metric from metric browser but while execute the API call i get 

<metric-items></metric-items> as output, there should be some value which i see in metric browser in controller that should be displayed but its nothing there.

 

can u or some one here can help in this issue.

 

Regards,

Hi Mandar, 

Have you found a solution to this?

 

I'm also looking into this topic, where i wan't to output the "Agent Availability" metric to a file. 

 

Have you tried something like this? https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/Metric+and+Snapshot+API#MetricandSnapshotAPI-RetrieveMetr... 

 

Best regards,

Hi There

 

This is what i did, in 3 steps, you can use an automation tool, or just create a script that iterates through the apps,nodes and output it to a CSV.

 

1. Query Applications API to get the Application Names & IDs

https://<controller details>/controller/rest/applications?output=JSON

 

2. Query REST API to get Node Id's per application(Will output App Agent & Machine agent), example will get metrics for last 60 minutes

https://<controller details>/controller/rest/applications/<Application Name>/nodes?output=JSON&time-range-type=BEFORE_NOW&duration-in-mins=60

 

3. Use the IDs to query another API to output the availability you see in the UI

POST

https://<controller details>/controller/restui/v1/nodes/list/health/ids

 

Body of Request(Please replace start_time & end_time with the epoch times you require)

{"requestFilter":[<comma seperated list of node id's>],"resultColumns":["LAST_APP_SERVER_RESTART_TIME","VM_RUNTIME_VERSION","MACHINE_AGENT_STATUS","APP_AGENT_VERSION","APP_AGENT_STATUS","HEALTH"],"offset":0,"limit":-1,"searchFilters":[],"columnSorts":[],"timeRangeStart":<start_time>,"timeRangeEnd":<end_time>}

 

This will output the availability that you see in the UI, for the time period you selected

Hello Mario,

 

I don't know much about these issues, but I want to do the same thing as you want to do, but I don't know how. For example, I am getting internal server error while posting the 3rd step. I am using Postman. Can you help me in detail about this?Can you help me in detail about this? I share the screenshot.

 


I have one more question, I will be glad if you can help with this.
As an example, I am making a monthly report. My report criteria are as follows.

Call / Min> 10 + Response time> 3000ms

Call / Min <1 - 10
Response time <1000ms - 5000ms

Unfortunately, I could not pull these values ​​with the api and I have to manually write to excel one by one.example 2.picture

Hi Haluk

 

Let's focus on the first problem, querying the data

 

I can see from your Postman screenshot that you have no body defined for that query

 

You should have a payload as mentioned in my initial reply to which ID's you want to query as well as the Time range like below

 

{"requestFilter":[123456,234567],"resultColumns":["LAST_APP_SERVER_RESTART_TIME","VM_RUNTIME_VERSION","MACHINE_AGENT_STATUS","APP_AGENT_VERSION","APP_AGENT_STATUS","HEALTH"],"offset":0,"limit":-1,"searchFilters":[],"columnSorts":[],"timeRangeStart":145908524378,"timeRangeEnd":145908524578}

 

Can you validate or advise what payload you are adding to the query?

Hello Mario,

 

This is how I tried, but I want to remind you once again that I am very weak in this regard.
