Observability

The Observability capability is enabled by the following components of Sunbird Observ-
Telemetry Service - Telemetry Service is a microservice that is capable of processing one or more events received from clients. Developed in NodeJS, telemetry service has processed more than 2 billion events per day.

What is Telemetry?

The word ‘Telemetry’ is derived from its Greek etymological roots, tele - remote and metron - measure.
Telemetry V3 Event Structure
All events follow a common data structure, though the event data structure (“edata”) differs for each event. The complete data structure is as follows:
{
// About the event
"eid": , // Required. TODO: Shall we rename it to "verb" ??
"ets": , // Required. Epoch timestamp of event (time in milli-seconds. For ex: 1442816723)
"ver": , // Required. Version of the event data structure, currently "3.0"
"mid": , // Required. Unique message ID. Used for deduplication, replay and update indexes
// Who did the event
"actor": { // Required. Actor of the event.
"id": , // Required. Id of the actor. For ex: uid incase of an user
"type": // Required. User, System etc.
},
// Context of the event
"context": { // Required. Context in which the event has occured.
"channel": , // Required. Channel which has produced the event
"pdata": { // Optional. Producer of the event
"id": , // Required. unique id assigned to that component
"pid": , // Optional. In case the component is distributed, then which instance of that component
"ver": // Optional. version number of the build
},
"env": , // Required. Unique environment where the event has occured.
"sid": , // Optional. session id of the requestor stamped by portal
"did": , // Optional. uuid of the device, created during app installation
"cdata": [{ // Optional. correlation data
"type":"", // Required. Used to indicate action that is being correlated
"id": "" // Required. The correlation ID value
}],
"rollup": { // Optional. Context rollups
"l1": "",
"l2": "",
"l3": "",
"l4": ""
}
},
// What is the target of the event
"object": { // Optional. Object which is the subject of the event.
"id": , // Required. Id of the object. For ex: content id incase of content
"type": , // Required. Type of the object. For ex: "Content", "Community", "User" etc.
"ver": , // Optional. version of the object
"rollup": { // Optional. Rollups to be computed of the object. Only 4 levels are allowed.
"l1": "",
"l2": "",
"l3": "",
"l4": ""
}
},
// What is the event data
"edata": {} // Required.
// Tags
"tags": [] // Optional. Encrypted dimension tags passed by respective channels
}
Note:
  • All events have the same structure with only differences in edata structures.
  • All events have unique event codes i.e., (IDs).
  • All events are as per platform schema

Telemetry Spec
  • Start - This method initializes the capture of telemetric data associated with the start of user's action
  • Impression - This method is used to capture telemetry for user visits to a specific page.
  • Interact - This method is used to capture user interactions on a page. For example, search, click, preview, move, resize, configure
  • Assess - This method is used to capture user assessments that happen while playing content.
  • Response - This method is used to capture user responses. For example; response to a poll, calendar event, or a question.
  • Interrupt - This method is used to capture interrupts triggered during user activity. For example; mobile app sent to the background, call on the mobile, etc.
  • Feedback - This method is used to capture user feedback
  • Share - This method is used to capture everything associated with sharing. For example; Share content, telemetry data, link, file, etc.
  • Audit - This method is used to log telemetry when an object is changed. This includes life-cycle changes as well
  • Error - This method is used to capture when users face an error
  • Heartbeat - This method is used to log telemetry for heartbeat events to denote that the process is running
  • Log - This method is used to capture generic logging of events. For example; capturing logs for API calls, service calls, app updates, etc.
  • Search - This method is used to capture the search state i.e. when a search is triggered for content, item, assets, etc.
  • Metrics - This method is used to log telemetry for service business metrics
  • Summary - This method is used to log telemetry summary event
  • Exdata - This method is used as a generic wrapper event to capture encrypted or serialized data
  • End - This method is used to capture closure after all the activities are completed
