What is the Knowledge Graph?
Knowledge graph uses a graph-structured data model to store descriptions of objects within your tools, so SquaredUp knows where to access your data. The knowledge graph shows all the objects (known as vertices) and their relationships to each other (edges) as a kind of map. Objects and relationships are indexed when a data source is added.
The knowledge graph does not store time-series data like metrics, logs, and traces, or operational data like alerts, incidents, and releases. This data is instead streamed on-demand from the data source APIs when it’s needed.
For example, when a dashboard shows a performance metric, or when a monitor evaluates health based on alerts from other tools, this data is queried directly from the tools and platforms you’ve integrated. Data available from those entry points are called ‘data streams’ which are defined by each data source.
|Term||Description||Term used in JSON schema||Other terms|
|Object||An entity that can be described, such as a server, group, person etc.|
|node, entity, vertex object and item|
|Relationship||This is the line between two objects that defines the relationship between them.||Edge||label, connection, edge object and link|
Where do I find the knowledge graph?
There are different places where you can see the knowledge graph:
Clicking on the Map tab in a workspace shows you the knowledge graph on a workspace-to-workspace level. You'll see all other workspaces your current workspace has a relationship to. See Map for more information.
When you are looking at an object, you'll see the knowledge graph on an object-to-object level under Graph. It shows you all the other objects this object has a relationship to. The labels on the links tells you what kind of relationship it is. Those links can either be there automatically when they came from a data source or they can be created by you via a custom correlation. See Map for more information.
When you are searching for anything and hover over the result, you'll see the knowledge graph for it. Based on what you searched for (a workspace, a dashboard, an object) you'll see a knowledge graph based on that level.
