Symfony 4 Prometheus Metrics Bundle


Applications that use Symfony Flex

Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute:

$ composer require artprima/prometheus-metrics-bundle

Applications that don't use Symfony Flex

Step 1: Download the Bundle

Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute the following command to download the latest stable version of this bundle:

$ composer require artprima/prometheus-metrics-bundle

This command requires you to have Composer installed globally, as explained in the installation chapter of the Composer documentation.

Step 2: Enable the Bundle

Then, enable the bundle by adding it to the list of registered bundles in the app/AppKernel.php file of your project:

// app/AppKernel.php

// ...
class AppKernel extends Kernel
    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...
            new Artprima\PrometheusMetricsBundle\ArtprimaPrometheusMetricsBundle(),

        // ...

    // ...



    # namespace is used to prefix the prometheus metrics
    namespace: myapp

    # metrics backend type
    type: in_memory # possible values: in_memory, apcu, redis

    # ignoring some routes in metrics
    ignored_routes: [some_route_name, another_route_name]

    # used in case of type = "redis"
        port: 6379
        timeout: 0.1
        read_timeout: 10
        persistent_connections: false
        password: ~


# expose /metrics/prometheus in your application
    resource: '@ArtprimaPrometheusMetricsBundle/Resources/config/routing.xml'

You can alternatively define your own path and rules:

    path: /mypath/mymetrics
    controller: Artprima\PrometheusMetricsBundle\Controller\MetricsController::prometheus

Now your metrics are available to Prometheus using http://<yourapp_url>/metrics/prometheus.

Custom Metrics Generator

If you want to collect your own metrics, you should create a class that will implement Artprima\PrometheusMetricsBundle\Metrics\MetricsGeneratorInterface. Then declare it this way:

            - { name: prometheus_metrics_bundle.metrics_generator }

NB: do NOT add a call to init() as it will be done automatically by the relevant compiler pass.
