ssid-schema - statistics store identifier schema




Each statistics store identifier (ssid) recognized by Oracle Solaris Analytics must conform to a schema defined using JSON. This schema is comprised of the component definitions found in /usr/lib/sstore/metadata/json-schema/.

Two tools are provided to assist with defining custom statistics:

  • soljsonfmt. Similar to pkgfmt, soljsonfmt formats your JSON in a consistent fashion.

  • soljsonvalidate. Checks your JSON against the schema found in /usr/lib/sstore/metadata/json-schema/.

On startup, sstored(8) validates all ssids found through static definitions in /usr/lib/sstore/metadata/json and /usr/lib/sstore/metadata/collections, as well as those found or added dynamically through providers such as kstat, dtrace, and userspace.
