MQTT Collector

The current MQTT collector is based in Sparkplug B specification, wich is not easy to implement in a PLC environment.

Please, in the near future, consider a simple MQTT payload like this:

Payload = {

                    "timestamp": 123456789,



                                            "name": "Variable1",

                                            "value": 1234,

                                            "type": "Int32"


                                            "name": "Variable2",

                                            "value": 5678,

                                            "type": "Int32"




Whit this flexibility we will be able to integrate more IoT metrics to the Canary Historian.

Best regards.

  • Hi josorio ,

    Starting in v22.0, the MQTT Collector will be able to consume a JSON payload. See our Roadmap for more details.
