The Vert.x Metrics SPI allows implementers to capture events from Vert.x in order to gather metrics.

This project is an Hawkular implementation of the Vert.x Metrics SPI: metrics built from Vert.x events will be sent to an Hawkular Metrics service.


You can use a standalone Hawkular Metrics server as well.

Then clone this project and build it:

git clone
cd vertx-hawkular-metrics
mvn clean install

Once the project is built, add the dependency to your Vert.x 3 project. For Maven based projects:


Then, you must enable Vert.x Metrics:

VertxHawkularOptions vertxHawkularOptions = new VertxHawkularOptions();
vertxHawkularOptions.setEnabled(true); // By default Vert.x Metrics is disabled

VertxOptions vertxOptions = new VertxOptions();

Vertx vertx = Vertx.vertx(vertxOptions);

Full samples can be found in the org.hawkular.vertx.monitor.examples package.


Here’s how to configure Vert.x Hawkular Metrics

VertxHawkularOptions vertxHawkularOptions = new VertxHawkularOptions() (1)
        .setHost("localhost") (2)
        .setPort(8080) (3)
        .setTenant("default") (4)
        .setPrefix("instance1") (5)
        .setSchedule(3); (6)
vertxHawkularOptions.setEnabled(true); (7)

vertxHawkularOptions.addDisabledMetricsType(MetricsType.NET_SERVER); (8)

VertxOptions vertxOptions = new VertxOptions()
        .setMetricsOptions(vertxHawkularOptions); (9)

Vertx vertx = Vertx.vertx(vertxOptions); (10)
  1. VertxHawkularOptions extends io.vertx.core.metrics.MetricsOptions

  2. Host of the Hawkular Metrics server, defaults to localhost

  3. Port of the Hawkular Metrics server, defaults to 8080

  4. The Hawkular tenant, defaults to default

  5. Metrics prefix used to build series name (for example marseille02.rack13.web043), empty by default

  6. How often (in seconds) metrics will be collected and sent to the Hawkular server, defaults to 1 second

  7. The Vert.x Metrics SPI is disabled by default, so make sure to enable it

  8. Disable unwanted metrics by adding the type of the metrics into a set, defaults to an empty set. Available Types : NET_SERVER, NET_CLIENT, HTTP_SERVER, HTTP_CLIENT, DATAGRAM_SOCKET, EVENT_BUS.

  9. Add your VertxHawkularOptions to the io.vertx.core.VertxOptions

  10. Create the Vert.x instance


It’s not possible yet to disable individual metrics.

The collection interval is a global setting. In the future, it should be possible to assign a schedule for all metrics of a resource (net server, http server, event bus), or for a single metric.
