New Relic data dictionary

This data dictionary lists and defines the attributes attached to New Relic events and other data objects (like Metric and Span data).

This dictionary does not contain data reported by Infrastructure integrations. To learn about that data, see the integration documentation.

StorageSample event represents a single storage device associated with a server. Each sample gathers descriptive information about the device, the type of file system it uses, and its current usage and capacity. New Relic samples this data every 20 seconds for each mounted file system and packages it into a StorageSample event, then sends the raw data to New Relic's collectors every 60 seconds.

Total attributes in this event: 39

Attribute name Summary
agentName The name of the agent (Infrastructure).
agentVersion The version of the New Relic Infrastructure agent.
avgQueueLen The average disk queue length derived from (Disk Transfers/sec) * (Disk secs/Transfer). Read more.
avgReadQueueLen The average disk read queue length derived from (Disk Reads/sec) * (Disk secs/Read). Read more.
avgWriteQueueLen The average disk write queue length derived from (Disk Writes/sec) * (Disk secs/Write) Read more.
criticalViolationCount The number of times that alert conditions violated critical thresholds, causing critical violations and opening incidents. If this attribute does not exist on the sample, it has zero violations.
currentQueueLen Length of the disk queue at the time of sampling. Read more.
device The device name.
diskFreeBytes The cumulative disk space that is free across all supported devices. (To find per-device values, use StorageSample events.)
diskFreePercent The cumulative disk emptiness percentage.
diskTotalBytes The cumulative total disk space on system.
diskUsedBytes The cumulative disk space used across all supported devices, in bytes.
diskUsedPercent The cumulative disk fullness percentage.
entityAndMountPoint A unique identifier concatenating the entityId and mountPoint attributes.
entityID New Relic's unique ID number for the entity that is reporting data. This is used by New Relic to distinguish between customers and their entities.
filesystemType The operating system's specific file system type. For example: xfs or ext4.
fullHostname The fully qualified (DNS) hostname.
hostname The short version of the entity's name.
inodesFree The number of free inodes. Read more.
inodesTotal The number of total available inodes. Read more.
inodesUsed The number of inodes in use. Read more.
inodesUsedPercent The number of inodes in use as a fraction of the total. Read more.
isReadOnly If the system is set to be read-only, this value will be true, otherwise false. These values are string literals, not booleans, to allow for faceting functionality in New Relic Insights.
kernelVersion The Linux kernel version, in string format. Read more.
linuxDistribution The name of the Linux distribution the server is using. Read more.
mountPoint The location of the device in the operating system's file system.
operatingSystem The operating system on which the agent is installed.
readBytesPerSecond The number of bytes read per second from the device during the last sampling period.
readIoPerSecond The average number of read I/O operations per second during the sampling period.
readUtilizationPercent The percent of totalUtilizationPercent dedicated to read I/O operations.
timestamp The time (date, hour, minute, second) at which the interaction occurred.
totalUtilizationPercent The percent of time spent waiting for read or write disk I/O operations.
warningViolationCount The number of times that alert conditions violated warning thresholds, causing warning violations.
windowsFamily The Windows family indicates whether the OS is a server or desktop targeted system. Read more.
windowsPlatform The full product name of the installed version of Windows. Read more.
windowsVersion The combined Windows version and build-number string of the OS. Read more.
writeBytesPerSecond The number of bytes per second written to the device during the last sampling period.
writeIoPerSecond The average number of write I/O operations per second during the sample period.
writeUtilizationPercent The percent of totalUtilizationPercent dedicated to write I/O operations.
