Protocol Integration

Network TCP datasources provide metrics such as round trip time (RTT), TCP retransmissions, number of packets, etc. for TCP requests and responses. Along with metrics, network TCP datasources also provide attributes such as protocol type, server port, etc. for TCP interactions.

Attributes

Below attributes can be used in filters and group by operations in analytics within alerts, dashboards, etc.

API Usage Name Description Value / Example
network.protocol Application layer protocol using TCP DNS, http, MYSQL, PGSQL, MEMCACHED, THRIFT, Unknown Protocol(s)
network.encrypted Encrypted networks kibibyte/s

There are some attributes that are common across the integrations. The description to the relevant attributes for this integration can be found here: shared attributes
