Extract custom metrics from any OpenMetrics endpoints.
Note: All the metrics retrieved by this integration are considered as custom metrics.
The OpenMetrics check is packaged with the Datadog Agent starting version 6.6.0.
openmetrics.d/conf.yaml file at the root of your Agent’s configuration directory to add the different OpenMetrics instances you want to retrieve metrics from.
Each instance is at least composed of the following parameters:
prometheus_url: Points to the metric route (Note: it must be unique)
namespace: Namespace to be prepended to all metrics (allows to avoid metrics name collision)
metrics: A list of metrics that you want to retrieve as custom metrics, for each metric you can either simply add it to the list
- metric_nameor renaming it like
- metric_name: renamed. It’s also possible to use a
*wildcard such as
- metric*that fetches all matching metrics (to use with caution as it can potentially send a lot of custom metrics).
There is also a couple of more advanced settings (
tags,…) that are documented in the
conf.yaml example configuration
Run the Agent’s
status subcommand and look for
openmetrics under the Checks section.
All metrics collected by the OpenMetrics check are forwarded to Datadog as custom metrics.
The OpenMetrics check does not include any events.
The OpenMetrics check does not include any service checks.
