Prometheus Integration

Learn how to configure Prometheus to get metrics from the Armory Agent and display them in a Grafana dashboard.


Available metrics

If prometheus.enabled is true in the Agent configuration, the Agent exposes metrics on port 8008 (prometheus.port) on path /metrics or /prometheus_metrics like other Armory Enterprise services. Both paths serve the same data.

Setting Type Description
go_gc_duration_seconds summary Amount of time spent in garbage collection.
go_goroutines gauge Number of go routines.
go_memstats_alloc_bytes gauge Amount of memory allocation used by Go.
go_memstats_alloc_bytes gauge Number of bytes allocated and still in use.
go_memstats_alloc_bytes_total counter Total number of bytes allocated, even if freed.
go_memstats_buck_hash_sys_bytes gauge Number of bytes used by the profiling bucket hash table.
go_memstats_frees_total counter Total number of frees.
go_memstats_gc_cpu_fraction gauge The fraction of this program's available CPU time used by the GC since the program started.
go_memstats_gc_sys_bytes gauge Number of bytes used for garbage collection system metadata.
go_memstats_heap_alloc_bytes gauge Number of heap bytes allocated and still in use.
go_memstats_heap_idle_bytes gauge Number of heap bytes waiting to be used.
go_memstats_heap_inuse_bytes gauge Number of heap bytes that are in use.
go_memstats_heap_objects gauge Number of allocated objects.
go_memstats_heap_released_bytes gauge Number of heap bytes released to OS.
go_memstats_heap_sys_bytes gauge Number of heap bytes obtained from system.
go_memstats_last_gc_time_seconds gauge Number of seconds since 1970 of last garbage collection.
go_memstats_lookups_total counter Total number of pointer lookups.
go_memstats_mallocs_total counter Total number of mallocs.
go_memstats_next_gc_bytes gauge Number of heap bytes when next garbage collection will take place.
go_memstats_sys_bytes gauge Number of bytes obtained from system.
go_threads gauge Number of Go threads.
kubesvc_connection_count counter Number of connections.
kubesvc_disconnection_total counter Number of disconnections.
kubesvc_events_bytes_sent_total counter Amount of data sent by caching events.
kubesvc_events_sent_total counter Number of caching events sent.
kubesvc_resource_agent_total counter Number of watched/polled resources.
process_cpu_seconds_total counter Total user and system CPU time spent in seconds.
process_max_fds gauge Maximum number of open file descriptors.
process_open_fds gauge Number of open file descriptors.
process_resident_memory_bytes gauge Resident memory size in bytes.
process_start_time_seconds gauge Start time of the process since unix epoch in seconds.
process_virtual_memory_bytes gauge Virtual memory size in bytes.
process_virtual_memory_max_bytes gauge Maximum amount of virtual memory available in bytes.

Configure Prometheus

If you are using the Prometheus operator, you can scrape metrics with:

kind: ServiceMonitor
    app: spin
  name: armory-agent-service-monitor
    - path: /prometheus_metrics
      port: metrics
#    - path: /metrics
#      port: metrics
    app: spin

Import a Grafana dashboard

You can import this Grafana dashboard definition to use with Prometheus.
