I am ingesting json data using log2metrics_json source type into a metrics index. Everything is working fine when the json is ingested from a file, but when the json is received over udp, I am getting errors like this:
INFO MetricSchemaProcessor [665036 typing] - channel confkey=source::udp:5514|host::126.96.36.199|log2metrics_json| has an event with no measure, will be skipped.
WARN IndexProcessor [664977 indexerPipe] - The metric event is not properly structured, source=5514, sourcetype=log2metrics_json, host=188.8.131.52, index=j2m. Metric event data without a metric name and preoperly formated numerical values are invalid and cannot be indexed. Ensure the input
metric data is not malformed, have one or more keys of the form "metric_name:<metric>" (e.g..."metric_name:cpu.idle") with corresponding floating point values. raw=
What could be the root cause? Why is there this error when the source is udp, but works fine when read from file?
