HTTPOutNode

An HTTPOutNode caches the most recent data for each group it has received.

The cached data is available at the given endpoint. The endpoint is the relative path from the API endpoint of the running task. For example if the task endpoint is at /kapacitor/v1/tasks/<task_id> and endpoint is top10, then the data can be requested from /kapacitor/v1/tasks/<task_id>/top10.

Example:

    stream
        |from()
            .measurement('scores')
    // Get the most recent score for each player per game.
    // Not likely that a player is playing two games but just in case.
            .groupBy('game', 'player')
        |window()
            .period(10s)
            .every(5s)
        |top('value', 10)
        //Publish the top 10 results over the last 10s updated every 5s.
        |httpOut('top10')

Beware of adding a final slash ‘/’ to the URL. This will result in a 404 error for a task that does not exist.

Note that the example script above comes from the scores example. See the complete scores example for a concrete demonstration.

Chaining Methods

Chaining Methods

Chaining methods create a new node in the pipeline as a child of the calling node. They do not modify the calling node. Chaining methods are marked using the | operator.

Alert

Create an alert node, which can trigger alerts.

node|alert()

Returns: AlertNode

Bottom

Select the bottom num points for field and sort by any extra tags or fields.

node|bottom(num int64, field string, fieldsAndTags ...string)

Returns: InfluxQLNode

Combine

Combine this node with itself. The data are combined on timestamp.

node|combine(expressions ...ast.LambdaNode)

Returns: CombineNode

Count

Count the number of points.

node|count(field string)

Returns: InfluxQLNode

CumulativeSum

Compute a cumulative sum of each point that is received. A point is emitted for every point collected.

node|cumulativeSum(field string)

Returns: InfluxQLNode

Deadman

Helper function for creating an alert on low throughput, a.k.a. deadman's switch.

  • Threshold – trigger alert if throughput drops below threshold in points/interval.
  • Interval – how often to check the throughput.
  • Expressions – optional list of expressions to also evaluate. Useful for time of day alerting.

Example:

    var data = stream
        |from()...
    // Trigger critical alert if the throughput drops below 100 points per 10s and checked every 10s.
    data
        |deadman(100.0, 10s)
    //Do normal processing of data
    data...

The above is equivalent to this Example:

    var data = stream
        |from()...
    // Trigger critical alert if the throughput drops below 100 points per 10s and checked every 10s.
    data
        |stats(10s)
            .align()
        |derivative('emitted')
            .unit(10s)
            .nonNegative()
        |alert()
            .id('node \'stream0\' in task \'{{ .TaskName }}\'')
            .message('{{ .ID }} is {{ if eq .Level "OK" }}alive{{ else }}dead{{ end }}: {{ index .Fields "emitted" | printf "%0.3f" }} points/10s.')
            .crit(lambda: "emitted" <= 100.0)
    //Do normal processing of data
    data...

The id and message alert properties can be configured globally via the 'deadman' configuration section.

Since the AlertNode is the last piece it can be further modified as usual. Example:

    var data = stream
        |from()...
    // Trigger critical alert if the throughput drops below 100 points per 10s and checked every 10s.
    data
        |deadman(100.0, 10s)
            .slack()
            .channel('#dead_tasks')
    //Do normal processing of data
    data...

You can specify additional lambda expressions to further constrain when the deadman's switch is triggered. Example:

    var data = stream
        |from()...
    // Trigger critical alert if the throughput drops below 100 points per 10s and checked every 10s.
    // Only trigger the alert if the time of day is between 8am-5pm.
    data
        |deadman(100.0, 10s, lambda: hour("time") >= 8 AND hour("time") <= 17)
    //Do normal processing of data
    data...
