I'm wondering if EPA supports sending a date as metric parameter, the reason for this is that I need record some metric in specific time
<metric type="LongAverage" name="metricName" value="value" time= "Date"/>"
You could format the date as unix time before sending it then it would just be regarded as an integer type value
Hi Mike, thanks for your answer, but I still have a doubt, does Wily would record this metric in a espefic hour? In example my EP Agent run with a 5 minutes frequency, and if it runs in 11:03, could I take this metric and put it into 10:59:59? thats is my truly trouble
Mike, could you show me how do you do that, please?. Thanks
This link shows how to do it using a linux/unix command
date - convert timestamp to epoch with bash builtin printf - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
That is exactly what I do.
The timestamp value described in the guide can only be used for creating a transaction trace or error event message.
Did Mike's reply help answer your question? If so, let us know so we can mark this question as answered.
