Using the Cloud SDK

Querying using the Cloud SDK

The primary programmatic way data scientists query for telemetry data is via the Cloud SDK, a lightweight Python module which can interact with the query API. It can be installed with pip3 install formant.

See the section on querying for telemetry data from our full guide to the Cloud SDK

Example script

Here's an example of how telemetry data can be queried with the Cloud SDK. Check out the full guide for more examples and explanation.

from import Client as FormantClient

if __name__ == "__main__":
    # to authenticate set FORMANT_EMAIL and FORMANT_PASSWORD
    # environment variables for an existing service account
    fclient = FormantClient()

    result = fclient.query(
            "start": "2021-02-22T23:59:00.000Z",
            "end": "2021-02-23T00:00:00.000Z",
            "deviceIds": ["2c18bc8b-c5e4-4ea0-8886-a8363d185597"],
            "names": ["$", "$.host.cpu"],
