    Hello , 
    I have nextract_plus script (from Mr nmon) , with python 3 installed (on Aix) with requests packages.

    I also configure influxdb and Grafana.

    When i run the script on hmc config , i got this message .

    Any suggestions ?

    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"
