InfrastructureEvent

InfrastructureEvent describes changes (deltas) that occur in a system's live state. When an inventory or system state is added, removed, or changed, Infrastructure will produce an InfrastructureEvent that logs that activity.

Total attributes in this event: 13

Attribute name Summary
category A New Relic category used to organize events in the UI. For example: automation, notification, and service.
changedPath The fully specified name of the item that changed. This is constructed by taking the source and adding one or more additional path elements that uniquely identify the item that changed.
changeType A simple classification of the type of change made to the entity: added, modified, or removed.
deltaId Delta refers to a recorded change in the system. The deltaId is a number used by New Relic to organize incoming inventory change data.
eventId The unique ID of the event, generated by New Relic.
format The type of infrastructure event. Each format type includes attributes that may be used to render the event in the UI.
newStatus The new agent status: disconnected or connected.
newValue If a change is made to the entity, this attribute contains the new value of the inventory that was changed. This will have no value if no change has been made. The value will display approximately 4K bytes of data.
oldValue If a change is made to the entity, this attribute contains the old value of the inventory that was changed. This will be blank if no change has been made.
provider For integrations that use generic event types (like the DatastoreSample event), the provider value specifies the source of the data (the service, or a sub-category of data from that service). Read more.
source The fully specified origin of this inventory item. This is typically in the form category/plugin, where plugin is the generic word used for the tool that gathered this data.
summary A summary of the change that happened. Uses a human-friendly string, such as Agent disconnected.
violationUpdateType The type of change to the violation: For example: open or closed.
