Hi all folks,
in the past we use the CLWorkstation interface/api to retrieve some data from the EMs, but now (with APM 10.5.1) we switched to the new SOAP interface/api (via introscope-web-services/services/MetricsDataService).
My questions, are there some usefull general migration hints and tips available.
Where can I get the values for the "value count" and the "value", "min", "max" from, all the time I try to retrieve some data I get the "value" only.
Thanks for any help,
I found these two KBs. But you said 10.5.1 so will likely not apply
Hiko_Davis Guenter_Grossberger SrikantN any other suggestions?
Hi Hal German,
I spent some time to check the Tec Docs also, I think the SOAP request API I'm interresting in was never implemented but specified for Introscope 9.5.0, see TEC613492, "9.5 Introscope Webservices API: no support for getExtendedMetricData Operation for the Metrics Data Web Service".
In general I have no problems to handle the SOAP API, I get some data, but I missed some data I got via the CLWorkstation API in the past.
And I missed some general Hints and Tips about the performance tuning for the EM. Sometimes we send a request to an EM and get now answer, but a second SOAP API request works well and retrieve some data.
Thanks for the Tec Doc links,
Thanks Lutz. I asked others internally to respond. Hopefully they will .
is there a specific reason you want to use the web service? In APM 10.5 we introduced APM SQL as a simple, elegant and more efficient way to query metric data: CA APMSQL Cookbook - CA Application Performance Management - 10.5 - CA Technologies Documentation
Please give that a try!
Hi Guenter Grossberger,
yes, I know the new APMSQL API. But the APMSQL API is not available for AIX EMs today (even so, I use it) on the one hand, on the other the APMSQL API is available on systems are using a DB only, but we don't use a DB in general. We use a PostgreSQL DB with some EMs only (with AIX).
That's the reason,
Guenter_Grossberger is away this week. I will mention your inquiry to others to try to get an answer.
