Error when trying to parse OpenTelemetry 0.7.0 data from metric streams

0

I'm trying to parse open telemetry data from metrics stream and sent to s3 bucket, without any compressions.

I downloaded the files from s3 (binary), they look like

¹—

and I followed the doc https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/monitoring/CloudWatch-metric-streams-formats-opentelemetry-parse.html trying to parse it using javascript, but I keep getting an error

Error: Unknown base64 encoding at char: ¹

from this line in the sample code from the doc

const reader = new pb.BinaryReader(data)

the google-protobuf I used is 3.19.3, and metrics_service_pb is generated from proto that from the doc as well. Does anyone know how to properly parse the binary data with javascript?

Thanks, Bill

solved by converting the file from s3 to Uint8Array - example code

fs.open(filename, 'r', function (err, fd) {
    var buffer = Buffer.alloc(1);
    var data = new Uint8Array(fileSize);
    var n = 0
    while (true) {
        var num = fs.readSync(fd, buffer, 0, 1, null);
        if (num === 0)
            break;
        data[n] = buffer[0]
        n += 1
    }
    console.log(parseRecord(data));
});

not optimized, but working for me. where filename is the filename from s3, and fileSize is the num of bytes of the file.

HTH for anyone is using open telemetry
