API for for sending historical MTS to SignalFx
Sends historical MTS to SignalFx, overwriting any existing datapoints for the same time period. Be aware of the following when you use
- A single call to
/backfillcan only refer to a single MTS specified by its metric type, metric name, and dimensions.
- Use the API in "bulk" mode. It's designed to accept thousands of datapoints in each call, such as 1 hour of points with a resolution of one second or one day of points with a resolution of one minute.
- Timestamps for each datapoint must be monotonically ascending.
- A single call to
/backfillmust contain one or more hour-long groups of datapoints, with each hour starting one millisecond after the top of the hour and ending exactly at the top of the following hour.
- Avoid large gaps in the data, because the provided data replaces
all of the data in the equivalent time period of existing data. For
example, if you have one hundred datapoints for an MTS over one
hour, and you backfill with 20 datapoints for the same MTS over the
same hour, you're left with 20 datapoints.
/backfilldoesn't support the built-in
sf_hiresdimension that marks datapoints as high resolution.
The SignalFx ID for the organization that should receive the incoming data
Enum: "gauge" "counter" "cumulative_counter"
The metric type for the metric you're backfilling. Allowed values are
The name of the metric in the MTS that you're backfilling
Designates one of the dimension names that identify the MTS you're backfilling. Specify one parameter for each dimension, up to the limit of 36 dimensions.
The media type ("MIME type") of the request body. Must be set to `application/json'.
Authentication token. Must be an org token (referred to as an access token in the web UI)
Request Body schema: application/json
Backfill request, containing a stream of JSON objects separated by whitespace. The format of each object is described in the model.
Timestamp of the historical datapoint, expressed in Unix time. The values of
The metric value, as an integer or floating-point number
