    Lynxari IoT Platform IoT Platform

    Lynxari MySQL Application

    Install

    $> npm install @agilatech/lynxari-mysql-application
    

    Install in the same directory in which lynxari is installed. Create a config.json file to suit.

    Purpose

    The purpose of this application is to store device data outputs to MySQL databases. It queries the system for device data properties and streams, and responds whenever data appears. Using the configuration to guide its behavior, it writes the results to a database table.

    Usage

    This application runs on the Agilatech® Lynxari IoT platform. As such, it is not applicable for other environments.

    To use it with Lynxari, simply insert its object definition as an element in the apps array in the applist.json file. On startup, the Lynxari server reads applist.json and starts all applications found there.

    A config.json configuration file must be present in the module's main directory. For this module, that will be within the Lynxari home directory in node_modules/@agilatech/lynxari-mysql-application/config.json

    Configuration

    The config.json file defines two arrays, the devices and the connections. The devices array defines the devices and their values to be saved. Each device definition is an object with the following elements:

    1. name : The name of the device -- this is used to query the platform for a connected device of the name. The query will fail if the name is not found. Also, a directory of this name will be created under the path for the data files.
    2. database : The name of the database to use.
    3. table : The name of the table in which to store the values.
    4. insertDelay : The amount of time in milliseconds which will pass waiting for other values to arrive. The purpose of this is to aggregate an insert statement with multiple values into one. It is usually preferable to insert three values in three different columns in a single INSERT rather than perform three separate inserts.
    5. storeType : One of 'insert' or 'update'. 'insert' creates a new row for every storage, where update replaces the last row.
    6. uniqueId : Allows inserts and updates to be specified by one or more identifiers. The motivation for this parameter is to allow a single db table to be used for multiple different data feeds. uniqueId must be an object, with the keys being identical to table columns, and the values the unique identifier. For INSERT statements, the unique identifiers are added to the column name and value lists. For UPDATE statements, each unique key and value are added as a WHERE statement. At this time, if more than one key:value pairs are specified, then the WHERE clause ANDs them all together. An OR operator may be added in the future.
    7. values : An array of values to store. These values are the names of the monitored values or value streams on the device.
    8. columns : An array of files in which to store the values. This array should correspond to the values array, in that it should contain the same number of elements, and the indicies for values aligns with those of the files (i.e. the 2nd value element will be sotred in the 2nd file element).

    There is no limit to the number of device objects which may appear in the devices array.

    The connections array defines the databases on which the device tables are stored. There may be any number of connections, but all connections are mirrors of one another -- in other words, there is currently no way to store only certain device values on certain databases for certain connections. Each connection may contain the following parameters:

    1. host : The hostname or IP address on which the database server is running.
    2. user : The username to authenticate with.
    3. password : The password for the above user.
    4. port : The unix port number to connect to. Defaults to 3306 if not given.
    5. socketPath : The path to a unix domain socket to connect to. If used, host and port are ignored, and localhost is assumed.

    The config.json file must be valid JSON.

    A sample config file:

          "insertDelay":0,
          "uniqueId":{"serial": 24562571},
          "values":["value"],
          "columns":["value"]
        },
        {
          "name":"WIND",
          "database":"wxstation",
          "table":"wind",
          "insertDelay":1000,
          "storeType":"update",
          "values":["speed_mps", "direction_deg"],
          "columns":["speed", "direction"]
        }
      ],
      "connections":[
        {

        },
        {
          "host":"mysql.example.com",
          "user":"billybob",
          "password":"7fjH4Uh6F83JUtE2xGWq"
        }
