SignalFx Developers Guide

Retrieving Metrics and Metadata

The data retrieval APIs get metrics, MTS, dimensions, custom properties, and tags from SignalFx. In most cases, SignalFx has APIs for retrieving data based on search criteria as well as APIs for retrieving data based on an ID such as a metric name or metric time series ID.

SignalFx also has APIs for retrieving information such as events, integrations, organizations, and so forth. In general, SignalFx provides a "get" API for each type of information it stores. To learn about these APIs, refer to the section that describes the feature. For example, to learn about the APIs that retrieve integrations information, see Working with Integrations.
