The Controller Metrics and Events API allows you to retrieve metric data information and information on various types of activities in your monitored environment, including Controller events. Additionally, you can configure how long you retain metrics.

The AppDynamics Dexter Data Extraction Enhanced Reporting extension provides an alternative to using a REST client to get metric data. The tool makes AppDynamics data queryable in the manner of a data warehouse. See the extension page on the AppDynamics Community Exchange for more information.

Retrieve Metric Hierarchy

Returns information about the metric tree structure. In the response, if a child element is a container item, its type value is folder. Otherwise the type tag for the child element is leaf

The API retrieves the first generation of child elements. You can expand only the children of the folder type.

Format 

GET /controller/rest/applications/application_name/metrics

Input parameters

Parameter Name

Parameter Type

Value

Mandatory

application_name

URI

The name or ID of the business or EUM (browser/mobile/IoT) application. Use the call to get the application ID in the Application Model API.

Retrieve Metric Data

The metric data method lets you get values generated for metrics. To use the method, you need to specify these parameters to the API:

  • The path of the metric to retrieve.
  • The time frame for the data.

The easiest way to learn how to construct the metric path and time range-related parameters is by using the Controller UI. When you right-click on the metric in the Metric Browser, a menu option appears for copying the full REST URL for the metric. The copied URL includes the path to this metric and time range selected in the UI.  

To test the path, paste the result directly into the URL field of a browser in which an authenticated session to the Controller UI is active.

Certain clients, such as most web browser, can also accept and properly encode the full path value as the metric path parameter. You can see the full path by hovering over the metric in the tree or copy it using the Copy Full Path option in the right-click menu. For reading clarity, certain examples below are shown with the full path value rather than the fully encoded URL value. If you test calls with the full path yourself, be sure to avoid having a pipe character appear at the start or end of the path. 

The following sections provide additional details and examples for the metric data method:

Format

GET /controller/rest/applications/application_name/metric-data

Input Parameters

Parameter Name

Parameter Type

Value

Mandatory

metric-pathQueryThe path to the metric in the metric hierarchy.Yes

rollup

Query

By default, the values of the returned metrics are rolled up into a single data point (rollup=true). To get separate results for all values within the time range, set the rollup parameter to false in the query.

No

Additional mandatory parameters for specifying time ranges are described in Using Time Ranges. 

Example

Metric Response Values

Metrics results include the following fields:

NameDefinition
currentValue for the current minute. Used only when the time rollup type used by the Controller is current.
countNumber of times the agent collected the metric over the selected time period.
min, maxThe minimum and maximum values reported across the selected time period. These are not used for all metric types.
occurrencesNumber of data samples taken by the Controller to calculate the standard deviation.
standardDeviationIntermediate values calculated by the Controller during time rollup used to calculate standard deviation. See Dynamic Baselines for information on how this value is calculated.
startTimeInMillisThe startTimeInMillis is the start time of the time range to which the result metric data applies, in UNIX epoch time.
sumTotal accumulated value for the metric over the selected time period.
useRangeUsed internally by the Controller to process the metric.
valueThe "value" value is one of the following for all metric values reported across the configured evaluation time length:
  • arithmetic average, if the metric time rollup type is average
  • sum, if the metric time rollup type is sum
  • latest, if the metric time rollup type is current

min and max values are not available for any count- or sum-based metric except when the metric is rolled up to hourly or daily data points. Count- and sum-based metrics include errors per minute, calls per minute, and so on.

Using Wildcards

When you copy the REST URL in the Metric Browser, you get the path to a specific metric within a specific application and tier. Alternatively, you can use wildcard characters in one or more the steps in the URL path get metric data for entities, including multiple business transactions, tiers, or nodes. 

The following format examples show where to put wildcard characters in various metric paths to achieve particular results. For reading clarity, these format examples use the "full path" for the metric (rather than the REST URL). For a full working example, click the expanding link under each format listing:

By default, metric data is rolled up for the time frame you request. You can set the rollup parameter to false to get all data points within the time frame. For example:

curl --user user1@customer1:secret "http://demo.appdynamics.com/controller/rest/applications/ECommerce_E2E/metric-data?rollup=false&metric-path=Overall%20Application%20Performance%7CAverage%20Response%20Time%20%28ms%29&time-range-type=BEFORE_NOW&duration-in-mins=15"

Calling metric data with rollups disabled can result in a considerable number of results.

It is important to note that a limit exists on the amount of data that can be returned for the metric data method. The maximum result is 200 metrics.

Using Time Ranges

You can fetch metric data for any time range, including for a range between specific points (for example, from 2:00 to 2:15 pm Monday) or for a relative time range (the last 15 minutes).

Time-based input parameters for the metric data API method let you specify a time range in several ways, as described in the following table. 

Time Range Input Parameters

Parameter Name

Parameter Type

Value

Mandatory

time-range-type

Query

Possible values are:

  • BEFORE_NOW: To use this value, you must also specify the "duration-in-mins" parameter. 
  • BEFORE_TIME: To use this value, you must also specify the "duration-in-mins" and "end-time" parameters. 
  • AFTER_TIME: To use this value, you must also specify the "duration-in-mins" and "start-time" parameters. 
  • BETWEEN_TIMES: To use this value, you must also specify the "start-time" and "end-time" parameters. The "BETWEEN_TIMES" range includes the start- time and excludes the end-time.

Yes

duration-in-mins

Query

Duration (in minutes) to return the metric data.

If time-range-type is BEFORE_NOW, BEFORE_TIME, or AFTER_TIME

start-time

Query

Start time (in milliseconds) from which the metric data is returned in UNIX epoch time.

If time-range-type is AFTER_TIME or BETWEEN_TIMES

end-time

Query

End time (in milliseconds) until which the metric data is returned in UNIX epoch time.

If time-range-type is BEFORE_TIME or BETWEEN_TIMES 

Examples

Most examples on this page use the past 15 minutes as the request time range. The following format examples show other ways you can define the time range for the request. 

  • Time range of the 15 minutes after December 19, 2015 5:40:00 AM GMT:

    ?time-range-type=AFTER_TIME&start-time=1450532400000&duration-in-mins=15
  • Time range of the 15 minutes before December 19, 2015 6:00:00 AM GMT.

    ?time-range-type=BEFORE_TIME&end-time=1450533600000&duration-in-mins=15
  • Time range between December 19, 2015 6:00:00 AM GMT and December 19, 2015 6:30:00 AM GMT:

    ?time-range-type=BETWEEN_TIMES&start-time=1450533600000&end-time=1450535400000

Retrieving All Other Traffic Business Transaction Metrics

The All Other Traffic business transaction is a type of business transaction that aggregates traffic for new transactions once the business transaction registration limits are reached. See Business Transactions for more about the All Other Traffic business transactions.  

The All Other Traffic business transaction uses a special identifier in API URI paths, _APPDYNAMICS_DEFAULT_TX_ The following example shows an example of retrieving the average CPU used by the All Other Traffic business transaction:

curl --user user1@customer1:secret "http://demo.appdynamics.com:8090/controller/rest/applications/ACME%20Book%20Store%20Application/metric-data?metric-path=Business%20Transaction%20Performance%7CBusiness%20Transactions%7CECommerce%20Server%7C_APPDYNAMICS_DEFAULT_TX_%7CAverage%20CPU%20Used%20%28ms%29&time-range-type=BEFORE_NOW&duration-in-mins=15"

Retrieve Controller Audit History

The Controller audit history is a record of the configuration and user activities in the Controller configuration. The ControllerAuditHistory API method returns the audit log for the time range specified. The output format can be JSON or CSV. This information is the same as that found in the audit.log file. See Platform Log Files for more information.

Format

GET /controller/ ControllerAuditHistory?startTime=<start-time>&endTime=<end-time>&include=<field>:<value>&exclude=<field>:<value>

Input parameters

Parameter Name

Parameter Type

Value

Mandatory

start-time

Query

Start time in the format: "yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSZ"

Yes

end-time

Query

End time in the format: "yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSZ"

Yes

time-zone-idQueryTime zoneNo
includeQueryRestricted information in the Controller audit historyNo
excludeQueryRestricted information in the Controller audit historyNo

To control the size of the output, the range between the start-time and end-time cannot exceed twenty-four hours. For periods longer than 24 hours, use multiple queries with consecutive time parameters.

Multiple filters of the same type are allowed. The backend API treats include filters with the same <field> with relationship "OR", and filters with different <field> with relationship "AND". There is no direct interaction between include and exclude filters.

Each filter needs to be a parameter, e.g. include=filterName1:filterValue1&include=filterName2:filterValue2. See the below examples.
