Withdraw of the 6.9.2 Release

Unfortunately, due to critical issues identified with version 6.9.2, we have decided to remove it and ensure it's no longer available for download. These issues impacted the ability to install or upgrade but none were security-related. We are diligently working to resolve these issues and are planning to release an updated version 6.9.3 in early May.

What if you've already upgraded?

For customers who have already upgraded to 6.9.2, no immediate action is required, as none of these issues are security-related. Once it's available, you will still be able to upgrade to 6.9.3 as normal. We appreciate your patience and trust as we continue to enhance our software to better serve you. Thank you for your understanding.

Runtime - Performance Metrics

This section is for searching for live objects being monitored by Opsview. This is in the Runtime database, hence the URL path is /rest/runtime/{objecttype}.

URL: /rest/runtime/performancemetric.

Requires authentication - requires VIEWALL or VIEWSOME permission.

Access Control Copied

VIEWALL allows all performance data to be returned. VIEWSOME allows performance data to be returned for objects where permission has been granted for the service based on the access object selection.

Requesting Performance Metrics Copied

Performance metrics consist of a name of the format:


For example, a fully qualified metric name is opsview::Opsview NDO::ndo_file_backlog.




This will only return items that have performance data. If you want to search for all hosts, use /rest/runtime/host.

Example response for type=host:

       "rows" : "13",
       "list" : [
       "total" : "41"

Example response for type=service:

       "rows" : "6",
       "list" : [
       "total" : "48"

Example response for type=metric:

       "rows" : "2",
       "list" : [
       "total" : "279"

Example response for type=hostgroup&format=object:

       "list" : [
             "id" : "4",
             "name" : "Opsview,UK,Leaf,"
             "id" : "2",
             "name" : "Opsview,UK,Monitoring Servers,"
             "id" : "5",
             "name" : "Opsview,UK2,Leaf2,"
       "rows" : "3",
       "total" : "3"

Example response for type not set (ie, the fully qualified metric name):

       "list" : [
       "rows" : "14",
       "total" : "455"
