However one thing you can try:

You can make the following API call to query individual Host metrics for a specific time range.

example:

# curl -v "http://amb25102.example.com:6188/ws/v1/timeline/metrics?metricNames=bytes_in._rate._avg&hostname=&appId=HOST&instanceId=&startTime=1451630974&endTime=1519110315"

.

However in this case you will need to keep changing the metrics name like "byte_in" ....

The time range you can take longer like "1451630974" means starting from 1 Jan 2016 , till "1519110315" means now.

NOTE: However as mentioned earlier there is no Single API call that can be used to fetch all the AMS collector data.

There is not Rest API call which can be used to capture the whole Metrics Monitors/Collectors Data in form of a file.

However you can query these data from the AMS collector Hbase database using utilities like sqlline as desceribed in

As mentioned on the other thread: https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/172151/data-source-for-ambari-metrics-collector.html?chi...

is there some way I can get data what metrics monitor collect system-level metrics and publish to the Metrics Collector.

other than using sqlline .

where does metrics monitor collects system level metrics ?

You can use Grafana to get the Host Level metrics which are sent by Ambari Metrics Monitor to Ambari Metrics Collector, By creating a custom dashboard. (Still it will be in form of Graph and not a single file with whole data)

Like: In following case i created a New Dashboard with "HOST" metrics and the metrics name is "byte_in" with Aggregator as "avg"

Re: ambari rest api for metrics

@Jay Kumar SenSharma

can you please brief about all metricsNames AMS has or location for the same where I can check ?

Some of the metrics list you can find here that are exposed to the AMS collector:

For All kind of metrics:

https://github.com/apache/ambari/tree/release-2.6.1/ambari-server/src/main/resources/common-services...

.

For particularly host specific metrics names you can refer to:

https://github.com/apache/ambari/blob/release-2.6.1/ambari-server/src/main/resources/common-services...

Hi Jay,

curl -v "http://amb25102.example.com:6188/ws/v1/timeline/metrics?metricNames=bytes_in._rate._avg&hostname=&appId=HOST&instanceId=&startTime=1451630974&endTime=1519110315"

This rest api not working for For All kind of metrics:.

I have replaced bytes_in._rate._avg to master.Server.numDeadRegionServers

curl -v "http://amb25102.example.com:6188/ws/v1/timeline/metrics?metricNames=master.Server.numDeadRegionServers&hostname=&appId=HOST&instanceId=&startTime=1451630974&endTime=1519110315"

but not able to get the metrics results .
