Archippe is a data persistence micro service for pelops. It uses influxdb to store incoming values and publishes the history a series upon request.

Project description

Archippe is a data persistence micro service for pelops. It uses influxdb to store incoming values and publishes the history a series upon request.

For example, archippe should store all values from topic \room\temperature. For this purpose a series with the same name is used in influxdb. To retrieve data a message must be sent to \dataservice\request\room\temperature. The message can either be a single float or a simple json structure. In the first case, the float value defines the time span in seconds (from=now()-floatvalue, to=now()). The json structure consists of two timestamps and group-by in seconds (optional): {"from": "2009-11-10T22:00:00Z",  "to": "2009-11-10T23:00:00Z", "group-by": 60} (timestamp are inclusive: where t<=to and t>=from; time format is %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%fZ, group-by must be integer). The result from the query will be published to \dataservice\response\room\temperature. It contains a list of a values and their timestamp that are available for the given period: [{"time": 10, "value": 0.1}, {"time": 11, "value": 0.2},  ...].

Request json-message:

{
    "from": "2009-11-10T22:00:00Z",
    "to": "2009-11-10T23:00:00Z",
    "group-by": 60  # optional (equal to 0)
}

Response json-message:

{
    "first": "2009-11-10T22:00:01Z",
    "last": "2009-11-10T22:59:23Z",
    "len": 49,  # entries in data list
    "topic": "/test/example",
    "version": 2,  # version of the response format
    "group-by": 0,
    "data": [
        {"time": "2009-11-10T22:00:01Z", "value": 17.98},
        {"time": "2009-11-10T22:01:50Z", "value": 13.98},
        {"time": "2009-11-10T22:03:00Z", "value": 11.98},
        ...
        {"time": "2009-11-10T22:59:23Z", "value": 20.0}
    ]
}

In pelops exists a HistoryAgent-class that implements a client side interaction with this dataservice. A usage example can be found in nikippe - the charts CircularChart and SequentialChart rely on HistoryAgent to keep track of old data.

Pelops Overview

Pelops Overview

Archippe is part of the collection of mqtt based microservices pelops. An overview on the microservice architecture and examples can be found at (http://gitlab.com/pelops/pelops).

For Users

Installation Core-Functionality

Prerequisites for the core functionality are:

sudo apt install python3 python3-pip

Install via pip:

sudo pip3 install archippe

To update to the latest version add --upgrade as prefix to the pip3 line above.

Install via gitlab (might need additional packages):

git clone git@gitlab.com:pelops/archippe.git
cd archippe
sudo python3 setup.py install

This will install the following shell scripts: * archippe

The script cli arguments are: * ‘-c’/’–config’ - config file (mandatory) * ‘–version’ - show the version number and exit

influxdb

Installation

Install influx database and client. For example in ubuntu to install them use:

sudo apt install influxdb influxdb-client

and start the influx client with ìnflux.

Configuration

We need to create a database (archippe), an admin user, and a non-admin user with write access to this database.

Within the influx client:

create database archippe
use archippe
create user admin with password 'supersecret' with all privileges
create user pelops with password 'secret'
grant all on archippe to pelops
exit

YAML-Config

A yaml [1] file must contain four root blocks:

  • mqtt - mqtt-address, mqtt-port, and path to credentials file credentials-file (a file consisting of the entry mqtt with two sub-entries mqtt-user, mqtt-password) [2]
  • logger - which log level and which file to be used
  • influx - influx-address, influx-port, and path to credentials file credentials-file (a file consisting of the entry influx with two sub-entries influx-user, influx-password) [3]
  • data-persistence
    • topics - list of topics that should be persisted and their types
    • prefix - prefix for each topic to request historic data
    • response - prefix for each topic to publish historic data
mqtt:
    mqtt-address: localhost
    mqtt-port: 1883
    credentials-file: ~/credentials.yaml
    log-level: INFO

influx:
    influx-address: homebase.w.strix.at
    influx-port: 8086
    credentials-file: ~/credentials.yaml
    database: archippe  # influx database
    log-level: INFO

logger:
    log-level: DEBUG
    log-file: archippe.log

data-persistence:
    topics:  # list of topics that should be persisted
        - topic: /test/temperature
          type: float  # float, integer, string, boolean
        - topic: /test/humidity
          type: float  # float, integer, string, boolean
    topic-request-prefix: /dataservice/request  # prefix for each topic to request historic data
    topic-response-prefix: /dataservice/response  # prefix for each topic to publish historic data

systemd

  • add systemd example.

For Developers

Getting Started

This service consists of two classes DataPersistence and Topic. For each topic that should be peristet an instance of Topic is created in DataPersistence.

Changes in the yaml structure must be mirrored in archippe/schema.py. It is a json-schema that verifies the provided yaml.

Todos

  • none currently planed

Misc

The code is written for python3 (and tested with python 3.5 on an Raspberry Pi Zero with Raspbian Stretch).

Merge requests / bug reports are always welcome.

[1]Currently, pyyaml is yaml 1.1 compliant. In pyyaml On/Off and Yes/No are automatically converted to True/False. This is an unwanted behavior and deprecated in yaml 1.2. In copreus this autoconversion is removed. Thus, On/Off and Yes/No are read from the yaml file as strings (see module baseclasses.myconfigtools).
[2]Mqtt and influx credentials can be stored in one file.
[3]Mqtt and influx credentials can be stored in one file.
