  • Hey, something I recently ran into! Your data is not formatted correctly:

    BatchScript Data Collection | LogicMonitor

    Your error is complaining about the fact that your output does not conform to the following format:

    data: {
    instance1: {
    values: {
    "key1": value11,
    "key2": value12
    instance2: {
    values: {
    "key1": value21,
    "key2": value22

    At least, I’m about 90% certain that’s what it’s complaining about.

  • What LogicModule/DataSource is this from? Something built into LM or something you coded yourself?

  • I was worng to use BatchScript and Script. It worked by Script not BatchScript.



  • It would seem this probably needs to be a multi-instance datasource using ##WILDVALUE## in the key to pull the data out. That way you don’t have to transform the output and you don’t have to hard code the “cloudConnectorHeapKB” into a datapoint. It will also make it so that you can have just the one datapoint for “free”.

  • Yep -- you aren’t able to use BatchScripts for _non-multi-instance datasources_. Found that out the hard way after one of my users was having this same problem. Forgot that was part of it, also.
