monitor/monitor.proto

MonitorConfig

Tells the monitor which target to open and provides additional parameters that might be needed to configure the target or the monitor itself.

Field Type Label Description
target string The target name.
type MonitorConfig.TargetType
additionalConfig google.protobuf.Struct Additional parameters that might be needed to configure the target or the monitor itself.

StreamingOpenReq

The top-level message sent by the client for the StreamingOpen method. Multiple StreamingOpenReq messages can be sent but the first message must contain a monitor_config message to initialize the monitor target. All subsequent messages must contain bytes to be sent to the target and must not contain a monitor_config message.

Field Type Label Description
monitorConfig MonitorConfig Provides information to the monitor that specifies which is the target. The first StreamingOpenReq message must contain a monitor_config message.
data bytes The data to be sent to the target being monitored.

StreamingOpenResp

Field Type Label Description
data bytes The data received from the target.

MonitorConfig.TargetType

Name Number Description
SERIAL 0

Monitor

Service that abstract a Monitor usage

Method Name Request Type Response Type Description
StreamingOpen StreamingOpenReq stream StreamingOpenResp stream Open a bidirectional monitor stream. This can be used to implement something similar to the Arduino IDE's Serial Monitor.

Scalar Value Types

double double double float float64 double float Float
float float float float float32 float float Float
int32 Uses variable-length encoding. Inefficient for encoding negative numbers – if your field is likely to have negative values, use sint32 instead. int32 int int int32 int integer Bignum or Fixnum (as required)
int64 Uses variable-length encoding. Inefficient for encoding negative numbers – if your field is likely to have negative values, use sint64 instead. int64 long int/long int64 long integer/string Bignum
uint32 Uses variable-length encoding. uint32 int int/long uint32 uint integer Bignum or Fixnum (as required)
uint64 Uses variable-length encoding. uint64 long int/long uint64 ulong integer/string Bignum or Fixnum (as required)
sint32 Uses variable-length encoding. Signed int value. These more efficiently encode negative numbers than regular int32s. int32 int int int32 int integer Bignum or Fixnum (as required)
sint64 Uses variable-length encoding. Signed int value. These more efficiently encode negative numbers than regular int64s. int64 long int/long int64 long integer/string Bignum
fixed32 Always four bytes. More efficient than uint32 if values are often greater than 2^28. uint32 int int uint32 uint integer Bignum or Fixnum (as required)
fixed64 Always eight bytes. More efficient than uint64 if values are often greater than 2^56. uint64 long int/long uint64 ulong integer/string Bignum
sfixed32 Always four bytes. int32 int int int32 int integer Bignum or Fixnum (as required)
sfixed64 Always eight bytes. int64 long int/long int64 long integer/string Bignum
bool bool boolean boolean bool bool boolean TrueClass/FalseClass
string A string must always contain UTF-8 encoded or 7-bit ASCII text. string String str/unicode string string string String (UTF-8)
bytes May contain any arbitrary sequence of bytes. string ByteString str []byte ByteString string String (ASCII-8BIT)
