Extractor metrics

This section contains the full list of available metrics from the extractor, grouped by general purpose. For information on the different types of metrics, see the official prometheus documentation here. In general, Counter starts at zero and increases during a run of the extractor, Gauge may change freely, Summary calculates a running average of observations and Histogram contains counts of different measurement sizes, distributed in buckets.

Source system

opcua_versionCounterValue always 0, help string contains version of extractor.
opcua_connectsCounterCounts the number of times the extractor has connected to the OPC UA server.
opcua_connectedGauge1`if the extractor is connected to the server,0` otherwise. Can be used to track extractor connectivity, together with prometheus heartbeat.
opcua_attribute_requestsCounterNumber of Read service calls made to the OPC UA server.
opcua_subscriptionsGaugeNumber of data-variables currently subscribed to.
opcua_history_readsCounterNumber of HistoryRead calls made to the OPC UA server.
opcua_browse_operationsCounterNumber of Browse service calls made to the OPC UA server.
opcua_attribute_request_failuresCounterNumber of times calls to the Read service has failed.
opcua_history_read_failuresCounterNumber of times calls to the HistoryRead service has failed.
opcua_browse_failuresCounterNumber of times calls to the Browse service has failed.
opcua_bad_datapointsCounterNumber of datapoints with a Bad status code received from the server.
opcua_bad_eventsCounterNumber of events skipped due to bad fields.


opcua_start_timeGaugeStart time for the extractor, in milliseconds since 1/1/1970
opcua_extractor_startingCounter1 if the extractor is in the process of starting, 0 otherwise.
opcua_tracked_assetsCounterNumber of OPC UA nodes that have been mapped to destination assets.
opcua_tracked_timeseriesCounterNumber of OPC UA nodes that have been mapped to destination timeseries.
opcua_num_pushesCounterIncrements by 1 for each push of datapoints and events to destinations.
opcua_streaming_delay_datapointsSummaryEstimated time it takes for datapoints to go from the source system to the extractor. Relies on clocks being synchronized between extractor machine and source machines.

With this, average time to CDF can be calculated as (1 / rate(opcua_num_pushes)) / 2 + opcua_streaming_delay_data
opcua_streaming_delay_eventsSummarySimilarly for events, time from source system to extractor. Note that this uses the Time property, which may be set by the server in some cases, or be generated in the past.
opcua_array_points_missedCounterNumber of points missed due to nodes reporting too large arrays.
opcuanode[node name]Gauge(s)The value of nodes in the OPC UA server hierarchy, if configured.

opcua_event_pushes_cdfCounterNumber of times events have been pushed to CDF.
opcua_event_push_failures_cdfCounterNumber of failed pushes of events to CDF.
opcua_node_ensure_failures_cdfCounterNumber of times trying to create nodes in Clean or Raw have failed completely.
opcua_skipped_events_cdfCounterNumber of events skipped due to issues or because they already exist.

extractor_utils_cdf_login_requestsSummaryNumber and duration of requests to /login/status
