Pure FlashBlade Exporter for Prometheus

The exporter uses FlashBlade API version 1.2.


make build

Or simply:



The exporter requires the name of the FlashBlade as a command-line argument:

flashblade_exporter <flashblade>

Pass in the token for API access as the environment variable PUREFB_API. (An API token can be generated for the FlashBlade by using the pureadmin command after SSHing to the device as 'pureuser'.)

The exporter accepts the following command line flags:

Flag Description Default
--port Port on which the exporter will bind to in order to serve up the metrics 9130
--insecure Disable SSL verification false

  • Exit the exporter on startup (instead of scrape) if the API token variable isn't set
  • Add overall capacity metrics
  • Add optional per-IP metrics
You can’t perform that action at this time.
