MOI raw metric data collection in JSON format from Kafka OI-TIMESERIES-RAW-PAYLOAD-RECORDS topic


Article ID: 242393


Updated On:


Mainframe Operational Intelligence


Attached is a script ( for raw TSD JSON data collection from the Kafka queue via the OI-TIMESERIES-RAW-PAYLOAD-RECORDS topic.  This is the Time Series Data(TSD) in JSON format that is being received by MOI for ingestion so it is the actual metric data values. 

This script is designed to collect only five minutes of metric data for reloading and analysis by MOI Engineering.


Release:   2.1


Instructions to capture the metric JSON data:

     *  Download the script to the MOI appliance into the /tmp directory.

     *  Execute the following Linux commands on the MOI Appliance:

                chmod +x


The script will collect TSD JSON data for 5 minutes and then terminate on its own. Once the script completes the data collection,  it creates a 'tsd.json' file in the /tmp directory. 

Please upload the resulting 'tsd.json' file to MOI Support via a Support Case.   Please also upload a screenshot of the collection script output for verification by MOI Engineering.

Here is a sample of the JSON data being collected:
