Actual Total metric

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Actual Total metric

    Posted Dec 07, 2016 02:58 PM

    I'm trying get a metric for the actual total number of invocations of an IIB9 flow over a period of time, instead of total number per Interval. I would think this would be simply possible but I cannot find a way to produce this metric.


    Im guessing a calculator will be required. I have tried to us the Management Module calculators but it doesnt seem to actually sum up the values. If a java script calculator is required then I will definitely request help on that.


    If it is possible to due with a report that would be great.


    Any help is appreciated here...

    A calculator would be required.


    Can you share a screenshot of what you would like to add up?  Over how long of a period of time would you want to add?  


    I would say a javascript calculator would be your best bet and not a regular calculator.

    Thanks for the response and any help you may provide.... Here is a last 1 week view of Message Flow Invocations Total for a particular flow. I would like to be able to get an actual total # of Invocations for the last week instead of Total per Interval. I actually found a couple very complex ways to do this (reports + shell script or MM calc + reports) but a java script calculator would be ideal. Maybe it could reset its count based on a variable I could change like Duration could be 1 Week or 1 Day or something... So the counter would just keep adding up instead of resetting each interval...

    If you want the count per week, the javascript calculator would be the best route to go.

    My thoughts exactly. I came here in hopes to get help with that. Development is not my strong suite...


    I just noticed the Count column in the standard report templates. I cant seem to find any documentation on this but it appears this does show the total. I always thought is was the number of data points taken...

    The count column in the report is the total value of the metric that you are reporting on in the time frame specified in the report.

    Dear Jordan:

    The original question was "is a calculator required?" Matt has confirmed yes and provided additional pointers. Specific assistance on building and debugging a calculator should be a discussion not a question. I posted a note in our internal APM community asking for someone to respond further. You may continue to post questions and comments but this is getting into a non-Support area and other non-Support Subject matter experts will need to assist.

    Thanks Hal,

    We can close everything related to this post now. I have given what I have to the customer and that will have to be good enough.


    Thanks again to all that reply...

    you can use Command Line Workstation to export the data to a csv file. Set the time interval as high as possible (e.g. 1 day) and then summarize in Excel: https://docops.ca.com/ca-apm/10-5/en/using/apm-command-line-workstation/clw-command-reference#CLWCommandReference-ExtractPersistentDatafromSmartStor(WithinaTimeRange)


    E.g. java -Xmx128M -Duser=${EM_USER} -Dpassword=${EM_PWD} -Dhost=${EM_HOST} -Dport=${EM_PORT} -jar CLWorkstation.jar "get historical data from agents matching (.*weblogic.*) and metrics matching (Servlets:Responses Per Interval) between \"2016-10-12 00:00:00\" and \"2016-10-19 00:00:00\" with frequency of 86400 seconds" > data.csv
