Example

defmodule ExampleInstrumenter do
  use Prometheus.Metric

  def setup do    
    Histogram.new([name: :http_request_duration_milliseconds,
                   labels: [:method],
                   buckets: [100, 300, 500, 750, 1000],
                   help: "Http Request execution time"])
  end

  def instrument(%{time: time, method: method}) do
    Histogram.observe([name: :http_request_duration_milliseconds, labels: [method]], time)
  end
end

or

defmodule ExampleInstrumenter do
  use Prometheus.Metric

  @histogram [name: :http_request_duration_milliseconds,
              labels: [:method],
              buckets: [100, 300, 500, 750, 1000],
              help: "Http Request execution time"]

  def instrument(%{time: time, method: method}) do
    Histogram.observe([name: :http_request_duration_milliseconds, labels: [method]], time)
  end
end

Here histogram will be declared in auto-generated @on_load callback, i.e. you don't have to call setup manually.

Please read how to measure durations correctly with prometheus.ex.

Installation

Available in Hex, the package can be installed as:

  1. Add prometheus_ex to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

    def deps do
      [{:prometheus_ex, "~> 3.0"}]
    end
  2. Ensure prometheus_ex is started before your application:

    def application do
      [applications: [:prometheus_ex]]
    end
You can’t perform that action at this time.
