Every collector has an instance from where the data is coming from. This section includes examples of mapping from Metricbeat to VMware Telco Cloud Operations mapping.

Metricbeat Mapping

Metricbeats is one format used to map external data into the VMware Telco Cloud Operations. Once Kafka collects the data for Metricbeat, the data is published to the Destination topic. The pipeline reads the Destination topic and ingests the data into the metric store. The following graphic shows all the parameters that can be mapped to VMware Telco Cloud Operation mapping.

The following table helps you to map the parameters from Metricbeat into the VMware Telco Operations Mapping:
VMware Telco Cloud Operations Mapping Metricbeat
Instance $.agent.name The agent name in Metricbeat can be mapped to the Instance in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Timestamp $.@timestamp The @timestamp in Metricbeat can be mapped to the Timestamp in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Processed Timestamp $.@timestamp The @timestamp in Metricbeat can be mapped to the Timestamp in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Metrics $.system.* The * means that you can take all the metrics and match them to your system. Metricbeat uses the service parameter to map to Metrics in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Metric Type $.metricset.name This parameter will create an index for the services. Meaning, you can enter the name of the service into the Metric Type $.metricset.name in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
DataSource $.host.ip[0] The DataSource is the IP address where the data is coming from. In Metricbeat the IP address is coming from the host. The first IP address under the host is mapped into the DataSource $.host.ip[0] in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Device Type Host This is the host in Metricbeat and is mapped into Host in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Device Name $.host.hostname In Metricbeat the hostname is listed under host and is mapped to Device Name $.host.hostname in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Entity Type $.agent.type In Metricbeat the agent type is mapped to the Entity Type $.agent.type in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Entity Name $.agent.name In Metricbeat the agent type is mapped to the Entity Name $.agent.name in the VMware Telco Operations mapping.
Tags $.host In Metricbeat the tags under the host can be mapped here.
