What is App Metrics?
App Metrics is an open-source and cross-platform .NET library used to record metrics within an application. App Metrics can run on .NET Core or on the full .NET framework also supporting .NET 4.5.2. App Metrics abstracts away the underlaying repository of your Metrics for example InfluxDB, Graphite, Elasticsearch etc, by sampling and aggregating in memory and providing extensibility points to flush metrics to a repository at a specified interval.
App Metrics provides various metric types to measure things such as the rate of requests, counting the number of user logins over time, measure the time taken to execute a database query, measure the amount of free memory and so on. Metrics types supported are Gauges, Counters, Meters, Histograms and Timers and Application Performance Indexes Apdex.
App.Metrics includes an Exponentially Forward Decaying, Sliding Window and Algorithm R reservoir implementations. For more details on reservoir sampling see the docs.
- Console & Text File Reporters
- InfluxDB Extensions
- Elasticsearch Extensions
- Prometheus Extensions
- Graphite Extensions
App Metrics also provides a health checking library allowing you to monitor the health of your application through user defined checks.

How to build
See the following for build arguments and running locally.
|BuildConfiguration||The configuration to run the build, Debug or Release||Release||All||Optional|
|PreReleaseSuffix||The pre-release suffix for versioning nuget package artifacts e.g.
|CoverWith||DotCover or OpenCover to calculate and report code coverage, None to skip. When not None, a coverage file and html report will be generated at
|SkipCodeInspect||false to run ReSharper code inspect and report results, true to skip. When false, the code inspection html report and xml output will be generated at
|BuildNumber||The build number to use for pre-release versions||0||All||Optional|
|LinkSources||Source link support allows source code to be downloaded on demand while debugging||true||All||Optional|
build.ps1 from the repositories root directory.
.\build.ps1 --ScriptArgs '-BuildConfiguration=Release -PreReleaseSuffix=beta -CoverWith=OpenCover -SkipCodeInspect=false -BuildNumber=1'
Linux & OSX
build.sh from the repositories root directory. Code Coverage reports are now supported on Linux and OSX, it will be skipped running in these environments.
.\build.sh --ScriptArgs '-BuildConfiguration=Release -PreReleaseSuffix=beta -BuildNumber=1'
How to run benchmarks
To run, fron the solution's root:
cd .\benchmarks\App.Metrics.Benchmarks.Runner\ dotnet run -c "Release" --framework netcoreapp2.0
You'll then be prompted to choose a benchmark to run which will output a markdown file with the result in directory
Alternatively, you can run the same benchmarks from visual studio using xUnit.net in the benchmark project.
See the contribution guidlines for details.
