This is a Prometheus exporter for passenger with nginx integration.

Building the Exporter

The default Makefile target creates a statically linked binary for Linux.

A Dockerfile and Makefile target are also supplied:

make build-docker

      Defaults to stderr.
  -log.level value
      Only log messages with the given severity or above.
      Valid levels: [debug, info, warn, error, fatal]. (default info)
  -passenger.command string
      Passenger command for querying passenger status.
      (default "passenger-status --show=xml") string

- You must mount the passenger-status binary within the container to
  have access.
- You must expose the -web.listen-address port on the container to be scraped.
