    Hello ,

    From error message it is clear that request module is not found. 
    Can you verify if request module is installed. You can try importing that on python3 prompt.

    Hopefully, you got this working and Sanket is right. comes with nextract_plus.
    Put it in the same directory as nextract_plus

    Actually, I have them both in the same directory and run from that directory.

    Please upgrade to nextract plus version 41  - it is much better.
    Downloadable from here:

    Cheers, Nigel

    Hi, I used a nextrac 41 with influxdb version1, now I've a update for version 2, and I received this message of error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/opt/hmc/", line 110, in <module>
        client = InfluxDBClient(iurl, iorg, itoken)
    NameError: name 'iurl' is not defined

    This is a part of the conf:

    "comment1": "Valid setting for output_influx = 0 (off), 1 or 2",
    "output_influx": 2,
    "comment3": "InfluxDB 2.x options",
    "iurl": "",
    "ibucket": "hmc",
    "iorg": "hmc",
    "itoken": "WWT5QNUKdYE7CcFv_IPcrIEyrvMqw_K0akg1MA==",
    "comment4": "other parameters are ignored"

    Perhaps a mismatch between the InfluxDB version and the InlfuxDBClient python module.

    I think you might be using the InfluxDBClient Python module version 1 which communicates with InfluxDB version 1

    client = InfluxDBClient('localhost', 8086, 'root', 'root', 'example')

    Note: the port number 8686 parameter among the others

    to attempt to talk to InfluxDBClient Python module version 2 which communicates with InfluxDB version 2

    client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org")

    Note the url, token and org parameters

    Cheers, Nigel

    Hello! Facing an issue with the nextract_plus script on AIX, Python 3, and requests packages. Configured InfluxDB and Grafana. Encountering an error during HMC config. Any suggestions or insights to troubleshoot this would be greatly appreciated for neotonics reviews!
