I am having a little problem with writing my data from the http plugin. Let me explain it with that simple example:
My response is JSON that is formatted somewhat like that:
then my inputs.http config is:
[[inputs.http]] urls = [ "sample.url" ] method = "GET" timeout = "5s" data_format = "json" json_string_fields = ["text"] json_query = "data"
My problem is that it seems like that json_query property is causing data to be collected with the same timestamp. So even though -test run is showing all the desired results, only last one is being saved to influx.
Test output (notice the same last value (time)):
> http,host=somehost,text=“sample”,url=sample.url number=123 1537306096000000000
> http,host=somehost,text=“sample2”,url=sample.url number=456 1537306096000000000
Actual influxdb data (as previewed with influxDB shell):
somehost 456 sample2 sample.url 1537306096000000000
Desired result is to see both measuers, so in this case both sample and sample2 but I don’t know how to differ that timestamp, so it’s not overridden.
Thanks for the help in advance!
