JSON Schemas for Replies to REST API calls

All of these schemas inherit from the UNIS network resource schema with the exception of the opsconfig schema.

Schema usage example

Some example usages of the above schemas follow. These examples assume the following (fictitious) local datastore URLs. These are arbitrary, and any place they appear, they can be replaced by whatever name the deployers prefer. For simplicitly, we show one local datastore per aggregate here, but the architecture does not require that --- it would be perfectly fine to have one datastore for relational metadata and one for the data itself, or one for certain types of relational metadata and one for others.

  • https://datastore.geni.net/: datastore containing configuration data for operational monitoring
  • https://datastore.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com/: datastore for gpo-ig aggregate
  • https://datastore.ch.geni.net/: datastore for ch.geni.net authority
  • https://datastore.externalchecks.geni.net/: datastore for external checks in the monitoring framework (e.g. inter-aggregate pings, AM external availability)

Bulk Data Queries

Queries on multiple eventTypes and object ID's will be presented in a list format. Here is an example query for event types cpu utilization and active memory utilization for nodes pc1 and pc2 of instageni-bbn. Also it is advised to provide timestamp filters with data queries. Here is the format for timestamp filters .

Example call:

https://datastore.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com/data/?q={"filters":{"eventType": ["ops_monitoring:mem_used","ops_monitoring:cpu_util"],"ts":{"gte":1391192225475202,"lt":1391192225480000},"obj":{"type":"node","id":["instageni.gpolab.bbn.com_node_pc1","instageni.gpolab.bbn.com_node_pc2"]}}}}

Data about operational monitoring configuration

Operational monitoring configuration data tells collectors where to find local datastores, and includes relevant metadata (like URNs and metadata about datastore or aggregate types) that collectors can use to decide which datastores to query. It is described using the opsconfig schema. Examples:

  • geni-prod: a hypothetical config datastore listing production aggregates and authorities:
