Add Metrics to a Server

Last modified: October 12, 2021


Overview

You can use the 360 Monitoring API to add metrics to a server. This can be useful to post statistics to our API from inside your applications (for example, error counts).

CURL with PHP

The following example code demonstrates how to add metrics with PHP via CURL:

<?php
$timestamp = time();
$api_token = '3318e3223ac57e7aa5269a4aaf1abc1a2';
$server_id = '5aafddba3a2bbd3ae5230aa30';
// Creating 5 data points of the last 5 minutes.
$data_points[] = array($timestamp, 45);
$data_points[] = array($timestamp-60, 42);
$data_points[] = array($timestamp-120, 49);
$data_points[] = array($timestamp-180, 55);
$data_points[] = array($timestamp-240, 95);
$payload['metrics'][] = array("metric" => "motherboard.temp", "points" => $data_points);
//Submit several metric sets at once...
//$payload['metrics'][] = array("metric" => "motherboard.fanspeed", "points" => $data_points);
$ch = curl_init('https://api.eu.monitoring.platform360.io/v1/server/'.$server_id.'/store?token='.$api_token);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($payload));
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
'Content-Type: application/json',
'Content-Length: ' . strlen(json_encode($payload)))
);
$result = curl_exec($ch);
echo $result;
?>

CURL via command line

The following example code demonstrates how to add metrics via CURL on the command line:
curl -X POST -H "Content-type: application/json" -d "{ \"metrics\" :[{\"metric\":\"motherboard.temp\",\"points\":[[1523439139, 20],[1523439339, 40],[1523439539, 70]]}]}" https://api.eu.monitoring.platform360.io/v1/server/5aafddba3a2bbd3ae5230aa30/store?token=3318e3223ac57e7aa5269a4aaf1abc1a2
