Description and Configuration of the Prometheus exporter
The Prometheus exporter is enabled by default and installs an HTTP handler on
http://localhost:8888/metrics. To read more about configuring the HTTP listener, see HTTP Listener Configuration.
Example Scrape Config
Add the following configuration to the
scrape_configs section inside
prometheus.yml of your Prometheus server.
# A scrape configuration containing exactly one endpoint to scrape: # Here it's Prometheus itself. scrape_configs: - job_name: 'vernemq' scrape_interval: 5s scrape_timeout: 5s static_configs: - targets: ['localhost:8888']
This tells Prometheus to scrape the VerneMQ metrics endpoint every 5 seconds.
Please follow the documentation on the Prometheus website to properly configure the metrics scraping as well as how to access those metrics and configure alarms and graphs.
