Garage exposes some internal metrics in the Prometheus data format. This page explains how to exploit these metrics.
Setting up monitoring
Enabling the Admin API endpoint
If you have not already enabled the administration API endpoint, do so by adding the following lines to your configuration file:
[admin] api_bind_addr = "0.0.0.0:3903"
This will allow anyone to scrape Prometheus metrics by fetching
http://localhost:3093/metrics. If you want to restrict access
to the exported metrics, set the
metrics_token configuration value
to a bearer token to be used when fetching the metrics endpoint.
Setting up Prometheus and Grafana
Add a scrape config to your Prometheus daemon to scrape metrics from all of your nodes:
scrape_configs: - job_name: 'garage' static_configs: - targets: - 'node1.mycluster:3903' - 'node2.mycluster:3903' - 'node3.mycluster:3903'
If you have set a metrics token in your Garage configuration file, add the following lines in your Prometheus scrape config:
authorization: type: Bearer credentials: 'your metrics token'
To visualize the scraped data in Grafana, you can either import our Grafana dashboard for Garage or make your own.
The list of exported metrics is available on our dedicated page in the Reference manual section.
