Ethereum Prometheus Exporter

CircleCI codecov Go Report Card

This service exports various metrics from Ethereum clients for consumption by Prometheus. It uses JSON-RPC interface to collect the metrics. Any JSON-RPC 2.0 enabled client should be supported. Although, it was only tested with Parity.


You can deploy this exporter using the 31z4/ethereum-prometheus-exporter Docker image.

docker run -d -p 9368:9368 --name ethereum-exporter 31z4/ethereum-prometheus-exporter -url http://ethereum:8545

Keep in mind that your container needs to be able to communicate with the Ethereum client using the specified url (default is http://localhost:8545).

By default the exporter serves on :9368 at /metrics. The listen address can be changed by specifying the -addr flag.

Here is an example scrape_config for Prometheus.

- job_name: ethereum
  - targets:
    - ethereum-exporter:9368
