Topology - script API
Functions for accessing the topology.

Function query

Query the topology at any point in time. Builder methods available for extracting components, relations and comparing topological queries.

Topology.query(query: String)
Copied!
Args:
Returns:
AsyncScriptResult[TopologyScriptApiQueryResponse]
Builder methods:
  • at(time: Instant or Timeslice) - specifes a time for which the query should be executed.
    • Use an instant to query for transactions that started at a specific timestamp including at any point in the past.
    • Use the currentTimeslice to query for all transactions currently started or in progress.
  • repeatAt(time: Instant) - repeats the same query but at a different exact time.
  • diff(queryResult: TopologyScriptApiQueryResponse) - compares this query with another query. A query should be the result of a call to this function.
  • diffWithPrev(queryResult: TopologyScriptApiQueryResponse) - compares this query with the last query in the chain. A query should be the result of a call to this function. This builder method is only available after the diff builder method was called.
  • components() - returns a summary of the components. After this builder method no more builder methods can be called.
  • fullComponents() - returns the component with all their data. After this builder method no more builder methods can be called.
  • problems() - returns problems for a given query along with the root cause and its contributing problems.
  • relations() - returns a summary of the relations. After this builder method no more builder methods can be called.
  • fullRelations() - returns the relations with all their data. After this builder method no more builder methods can be called.
Examples:
  • Get the test environment:
    1
    Topology.query('environments in ("test")')
    Copied!
  • Get the test environment yesterday:
    1
    Topology.query('environments in ("test")').at('-1d')
    Copied!
  • Get test environment one hour ago, two hours ago and three hours ago.
    1
    Topology.query('environments in ("test")').at('-1h').repeatAt('-2h').repeatAt('-3h')
    Copied!
  • Get the component that differ between the test and production environment:
    1
    Topology.query('environments in ("test")').diff(Topology.query('environments in ("production")')).components()
    Copied!
  • Get the difference between the test environment one week ago and now:
    1
    def q = 'environments in ("test")'
    2
    Topology.query(q).at('-1w').diff(Topology.query(q))
    Copied!
  • Get all the names of components from the test environment using thenCollect:
    1
    Topology.query('environments in ("test")')
    2
    .components()
    3
    .thenCollect { it.name }
    Copied!
  • Get the first root problem's first failing check - likely a major root cause of a problem in the queried topology:
    1
    Topology
    2
    .query('environments in ("test")')
    3
    .problems()
    4
    .then{ problems ->
    5
    problems.isEmpty()? null : problems[0].failingCheckNames[0]
    6
    }
