Symfony bundle for Prometheus client

v0.2.3 2018-07-30 08:40 UTC

README

A Symfony bundle for the tweede golf prometheus client. For more information on Prometheus you can check their website.

Installation and configuration

Using Composer add the bundle to your dependencies using the require command:

composer require tweedegolf/prometheus-bundle

Add the bundle to your AppKernel

Add the bundle in your app/AppKernel.php:

public function registerBundles()
{
    return array(
        // ...
        new TweedeGolf\PrometheusBundle\TweedeGolfPrometheusBundle(),
        // ...
    );
}

Configure storage, collectors and routes

To allow prometheus to scrape your metrics from your application, make sure you make a route available for the prometheus metrics controller:

tweede_golf_prometheus:
    resource: "@TweedeGolfPrometheusBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"
    prefix: /

You can also implement your own controller, take a look at the source code of TweedeGolf\PrometheusBundle\Controller\MetricsController::metricsAction. You can configure some aspects of the prometheus client using the configuration, the default values are shown below:

tweede_golf_prometheus:
    storage_adapter_service: TweedeGolf\PrometheusClient\Storage\ApcuAdapter
    metrics_path: /metrics
    collectors: ~

To adjust, create a section tweede_golf_prometheus in your config.yml. You may specify any number of collectors. An example where four different collectors are defined is shown below:

tweede_golf_prometheus:
    collectors:
        requests:
            counter:
                labels: [url]
                help: Number of requests
        throughput:
            gauge:
                labels: [url]
                help: Throughput per url
                initializer: 10.0
        response_timing:
            histogram:
                labels: [url]
                help: Response timings
                buckets: [0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, 60]
        shorthand_example:
            counter: ~

Modifying (incrementing/observing/setting) metrics

To modify a metric, retrieve it via the CollectorRegistry service and call one of the type specific metric modification methods.

use TweedeGolf\PrometheusClient\CollectorRegistry;

public function exampleAction()
{
    $metric = $this->get(CollectorRegistry::class)->getCounter('requests');
    $metric->inc();
}

Register a collector service

You can also register services as collectors with the collector registry. To do this, add a tweede_golf_prometheus.collector tag to your service and make sure the service implements the CollectorInterface. You can also use the factory methods of the registry service:

services:
    example.collector.test:
        class: TweedeGolf\PrometheusClient\Collector\Counter
        factory: TweedeGolf\PrometheusClient\CollectorRegistry:createCounter
        arguments: [test]
        tags: [tweede_golf_prometheus.collector]
